Now celebrating our 28th year, the Mullane Healy Godley Academy continues to be one of North America's premier Irish dance academies. 

Our success as one of the top North American Irish Dance Academy at the recent 2013 National and World Championships illustrates the dedication of both the dancers and teachers.

The Academy has always taken a team approach in instruction where all dancers are treated equally and all share in the commitment of a dedicated teaching staff.  Through this global approach, dancers share in the talent of a teaching staff that has choreographed and coached a multitude of Regional, National, and World Champion teams and solos, along with the only school in Chicago that has two World Champions on staff. 

The Academy offers classes for everyone.  From recreational dance instruction, to preparation for the World Championship, in the Mullane Healy Godley Irish Dance Academy you will find a hardworkingó yet fun atmosphere, from both the teaching staff and the student.  To illustrate the hard work, preparation and practice of the dancers (affectionately known as MHuGsters) - the Academy is home to World Champions, All-Ireland Champions, North American Champions, All-Scotland Champions, Regional Champions and a host of Open Championship dancersAnd although these are global achievements to be sure - more recognizable is the camaraderie and friendships developed between all the dancers  as each dancer cheers the other on to success. 

Classes are held in our state of the art studios in Elmhurst, and Edison Park.  The blending of talents will now afford ALL present and future dancers an extensive array of opportunities combining the skills of  both schools - through avenues such as performances, recitals, choreographies, School Feises, workshops and Academy events. Under the Mullane Healy Godley Academy, classes are offered in both recreational and competitive Irish dancing allowing dancers to enjoy Irish dancing at their pace.

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.
