    2016 World Irish Dance Champions

    Welcome to the Mullane Healy Godley Irish Dance Academy


    Whether it is instruction for a new beginner dancer, or preparing a dancer for the World Championships -at MHG you will find a hardworking— yet fun atmosphere, from both the teaching staff and the students. MHG is one of the best Irish dance schools in the world - not because of all the titles won, but because of what is passed onto the dancers. Long after the trophies have tarnished, and the medals are put away - what remains are friendships that last a lifetime, a sense of family and teamwork, and self esteem that carries with the dancer long after their Irish dance classes are over.

    2016 World Champions - Dance Drama

    Glasgow, Scotland

    After an amazing World Championship competition in Glasgow, Scotland - with teams from literally all over the world, MHG were crowned World Champions. Through the creativity of Gary Healy, and the watchful of eyes of Mary Alice, Peggy, Eanna and staff - the MHuGsters were well prepared when they took the stage. The crowd could not stop from laughing as our drama, The Ryanair Generation, was a satirical look at "low-cost" airlines like Irish owned Ryanair. MHG has become the only school in North America to have a World Championship in male solos, female solos, ceili team, figure choreography team and now Dance Drama. Although the video of the drama doesn't do it the justice of the live performance, we are sharing it for all to enjoy.

    The teaching faculty at the Mullane Healy Godley Academy is an international fusion of some of the most highly accomplished and decorated teachers in Irish dance today. We believe that one of our greatest assets is the diversity of the Mullane Healy Godley teaching staff.


    The Academy is proud to treat every MHuGster equally ... this is not a goal, but a reality. Each dancer, whether Beginner, Recreational, or Competitive receives the same dedicated and energetic instruction from our international dedicated teaching staff. Each teacher brings a different perspective and approach and relies on their own strengths to further develop the abilities and talents of the dancers. Through the talents of the teaching staff and dancers, the Mullane Healy Godley Academy is poised for the future.


    State-of-the-art dance studios offering the dancers the best atmosphere to learn and succeed.

    MHG has been a mainstay in the Edison Park area for over 30 years. Located near the border of Chicago, Niles, and Park Ridge at the intersection of Harlem and Touhy, the MHG studio is convenient to both 294 and 90/94.

    Opened in 2015, our newest state-of-the-art studio houses a raised floating dance floor with full length mirrors offering the best possible learning environment. The studio is a stone's throw to 294 and Ogden Avenue and is convenient to both the Western and Southern suburbs.
