Wow! This is a really awesome post! It will be really helpful for me:)

Sorry I'm just being a bother, but the info on the dance school I go to (McGrath Academy of Irish Dance) is slighty off.

Instead of Lauren McGrath Daniel, it's actually Lauren McGrath Dutton. Also, the email we've always contacted her with is tcrg@mcgrathirishdance.com. The website is mcgrathirishdance.com, and I believe the numbers are different.

Just wanted to make sure you've got the correct info, thanks again for posting this!!!:)

Just so you know though for New Mexico you left out the Tir Conaill Academy of Irish Dance.

This is the website: tirconaillacademy.com
Chris McGrory: 520-991-3605 christopher.mcgrory@gmail.com

(Anyone know Chris McGrory from all his CD's like Dance for the World, One Step Closer, Lets Dance etc? Yeah, he's the TCRG and just got his ADCRG)

I'm having flashbacks to the Diochra.com days...goodness, Claire! :)

Some corrections on Illinois schools:
Achill Academy — Sharon is a SIDA3, NAIDF's highest level of judge.

Blackbird — Una & Eileen are TCRGs.

ADD: Central Illinois Irish Dance
Lori (Verhurst?), TCRG Candidate
Springfield, IL
ciidance.com

Cross Keys — Kathleen is an ADCRG and has many TCRGs working with her.

Dennehy — dennehydancers.com, Kathy & Katie are both TCRGs

Dillon-Gavin — dillon-gavin.com, Bernadette Dillon-Gavin, ADCRG
Maureen Dillon-Yawger, TCRG

ADD: Flynn's Irish Dancers
Peggy Flynn Dwyer
Peoria, Illinois
flynnsirishdancers.home.insightbb.com
The website's not updated, but they are still active.

Foy — foyirishdancers.com, Geraldine is a TCRG

Hughes (correct spelling)

ADD: Isle of Erin Irish Dance
Erin Wukitsch
Peoria, Illinois
isleoferinirishdance.com

Lavin-Cassidy — lavincassidy.com, Ann ADCRG, Emma TCRG, Laura ADCRG

ADD: Maiden Street School of Irish Dance
Sarah Dolan TCRG Candidate
Oak Park, Illinois
maidenstreetdancers.com

Mary Madden School of Irish Dancing is in South Boston, Massachusetts, not Illinois.

Mayer — mayerschool.com, Mary TCRG, Paul ADCRG, with three additional TCRGs teaching

McNulty — Barbara is a TCRG

Mulhern — Eileen & Coleen are TCRGs

Mullane — Two ADCRGs (Mike, Gary) and a bunch of TCRGs (Mary Alice Mullane Godley, Peggy Godley, Katie May)

Sharon Keane, Peggy Godley — that information is for what is now Mullane-Healy-O'Brien. The email address actually belongs to another Mullane teacher. Mullanedancers.com has been turned into a dance clothing temp website.

O'Hare — ONLY in Michigan now, NOT Illinois. oharedance.com, Tim O'Hare ADCRG, Megan Sanders-Paulowicz ADCRG, Breda McGowan ADCRG, Marilee Murray TCRG

Rince na Cara Irish Dance Academy is long gone.

Tully-O'Hare — tullyirishdancers.com, Solely the Tully Academy now, Sheila ADCRG

ADD: Weber School of Irish Dance, weberirishdancers.com, no-longer-competitive but a long-established school (founded 1962)

Whelan — Not sure if still running

World Academy — I heard this school is on hiatus for at least year while Julie relaxes and spends more time with her kids. She still judges. She wrote this beautiful letter to everyone explaining her (I think brave) decision:

"Hello World Academy Families.

I am writing to you from my heart because I have made a decision to take a new journey in my life.

For 19 years I have been honored that you, as parents, have entrusted your children to me as their Irish dance teacher. I have loved every minute of it and will treasure your children forever.

I also treasure my own children and my husband. Hanna has two years of high school left, Emma is just starting high school, and Keenan is starting middle school. This summer as I have run them to all their activities I have come to the realization as to just how much of their lives I have missed.

I want to participate in the upcoming events of my children's lives and not watch a video playback or listen to a telephone summary of what they are doing.

For this reason, I am making a very emotional decision that I have been thinking about for the last two months. I will not be teaching dancing for the upcoming year and cannot give you a specific date as to when or if I will return.

I will continue to judge feisanna and have been in contact with a few teachers so your children all have dancing homes. I hope they will continue to love Irish dancing, remember World Academy, and continue to grow as incredible young men and women that I know they are.

There are so many amazing memories from the World Academy that I will keep forever in my heart.

I thank you for your loyalty, commitment, belief, understanding, and compassion to our school and me.

Love,
Ms. Julie
Julie Showalter"

Just so you know, There is another school in Kansas now, called the Driscoll school. And then the O'riada School is now O'Riada-McCarty-Manning, is run by Emily McCarty and Joseph Manning, is located primarily in westwood, KS at our new studio and we have a website of ommirishdance.com. The email and phone are probably different too. The info for O'riada is from when I first started dancing, so... 15 years old. That's it :)

This is an amazing list. Another correction, this time to An Daire Academy.

There is no longer An Daire locations in Bend, OR or Boise, ID. There is also a location now in Wenatchee.

Dillon Moore Academy now has a location in Bend, OR. Not sure about their contact information.

Here's another correction!

Heritage Irish Stepdancers is owned by Ariel Bennett, not Molly Bennett. The school phone number is 720-747-9377.

You forgot Alaska!

Comerford Alaska, taught by Noreen Westcott (TCRG) and owned by Tony Comerford (ADCRG)

I believe there's a McTaggert in Alaska as well. I THINK Pat teaches up there, but I don't know.

There is also Watters School of Irish Dance in central Florida. Taught by Christi Cameron (TCRG) and taugh/owned by Myra Watters (ADCRG)

Is this list for ALL schools reguardless of affiliation or is this a list of CLRG schools only?

For Utah: Crawford does not exist anymore, neither is Power Academy in Utah any longer (California only). Those both have been replaced with Scariff-Hardiman School (main base in Florida) www.irishdanceinutah.com and Harp Irish Dance Company www.harpirishdance.com, respectively. Then there's Acadamh Rince www.utahirishdance.com, An Tús Nua loganirishdance.blogspot.com, and Shelley School of Irish Dance www.shelleyirishdance.com. Those are the CLRG schools in Utah; if this is a list for all schools, there's a WIDA school: Legacy Irish Dance (my school! :)) www.facebook.com . . ., and a few recreational schools: An Dragan Ceilteach www.adcirishdancers.com, Celtic Beat Irish Dancers www.laraesdanceunlimited.com . . ., and Rinceoiri Don Spraoi www.irishdanceutah.com. Whew! I hope I got everybody.

Everyone — they have some NAIDF, WIDA and I think CRN schools listed there already. Which I was very happy to see, thank you!
