We are more than a dance school; we are a community.

The McTeggart School of Irish Dance is New Mexico's premier Irish Dance academy of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. Founded in Cork, Ireland, in 1939, we offer classes to boys and girls ages 4 and up, from beginner to championship.

Our dancers compete at statewide, regional, national, and world-level competitions.

We invite you to join us for the annual New Mexico State Championships & Feis and Feis on the Rio Grande in May 2022!

More details regarding the 2022 feiseanna coming soon.

We provide a fun and friendly environment where each dancer is taught with the care and attention to detail required to excel in ability and self-confidence.



The skills learned in Irish dance go far beyond dancing...  

Our students truly learn the value of dedication to practice.  

Dancers learn to compete gracefully and to exhibit good sportsmanship.  

They learn stage presence and performance skills while dancing in nursing homes, at festivals, and with musical groups including the Chieftains, Gaelic Storm, and Danu.
