The Maureen Onesti Academy was established in 1995, in Motherwell, by T.C.R.G, Maureen Onesti. In her younger days, Maureen was a very successful champion, winning many championships throughout Scotland, England and Ireland. Maureen’s continued interest and passion for Irish Dancing, led to the establishment of her very own school, teaching all aspects of Irish Dancing, from Solo Step, to Team/Ceili Dancing. Maureen owes all her successes to date to her teacher, Jean Taylor A.D.C.R.G who taught Maureen since the age of 8 and has passed many skills she was taught onto her own pupils today.

Throughout the years, Maureen followed her daughter, Cara’s, dancing career, whilst running and expanding her own successful dance school in the North Lanarkshire area. Maureen’s help, advice and instruction, helped her daughter become a champion dancer, winning many many titles, including 3rd place in the World Championships. Cara is an assistant teacher within the class, who will shortly taking her T.C.R.G examination, hopefully becoming a teacher in her own right.

Maureen and Cara have a positive partnership and aim to provide the finest instruction in Irish Dancing. Throughout the years, the Maureen Onesti School has grew from strength to strength, coaching pupils from beginner level through to championship level. Not only does the school teach the art of Irish Dancing, but also strives to improve the health and fitness of their pupils, by seeing qualified instructors to advise on healthy eating, warm up/down exercises, and general exercises for muscle building.

The Maureen Onesti Academy, who is registered under ‘An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelica’ are proud of their success since establishment, and has now expanded to areas of Lanarkshire such as Motherwell, Bellshill, Hamilton and Wishaw.
