Eimir Ni Mhaoileidigh T.C.R.G.
Eimir Ni Mhaoileidigh T.C.R.G. is a former World Champion Irish dancer with more titles than she can count. A student of the renowned Inis Ealga School of Irish Dance, Eimir trained under her father, Maitiu O’Maoileidigh, and Marie Duffy, choreographer for Lord of the Dance. Eimir won her first major title, All-Ireland, at the age of 10. Since then, her list of accomplishments is staggering. She has twice been the Solo World Dancing Champion, five times All-Ireland Solo Champion, eleven times a World Ceili Dancing Champion, nine times a World Figure Dancing Champion, four times a World Dance Drama Champion, and the winner of an additional 300 championships worldwide. With her team, for which she was the dance captain, she won the Gold Medal in the 1981 Dijon, France, Folk Dance Olympics.
Many of the original Riverdance and Lord of the Dance dancers were trained by Eimir when she taught in her father's school in Ireland. She has continued to train dancers for both productions.
After many years of teaching students in Ireland and all over the United Sates, Eimir settled in Austin and founded the Irish Dance Center in 1997. The Irish Dance Center is located at 12400 Amherst Drive, Austin, TX 78727.
The school offers classes in all the basic techniques of traditional Irish Step Dancing for adults and children over age 4. Advanced classes experiment with complex rhythms and are eligible for invitation to the Irish Dance Company, our Premier Show Team. Team/show classes, as well as, competitive and non-competitive classes are offered. Competing at local and out-of-town competitions is encouraged for students of all levels, but is not required.
