The McTeggart School of Irish Dance was established in 1939 in Cork, Ireland. The first director was Peg McTeggart the eldest of four sisters, all of them champion dancers. The school soon spread throughout County Cork due to the efforts of younger sister Maureen McTeggart Hall. In 1958 Maureen and her family immigrated to the United States, bringing with them the art of Irish dancing, introducing it to the Western Region of the United States by establishing schools in Fresno, California and the San Francisco Bay area. She has since established more than a dozen schools in Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. Maureen’s daughters, Pat and Anne Hall, are also certified Irish dance instructors and adjudicators. The McTeggart School of Irish Dance is one of the most respected schools in the nation, with dancers consistently qualifying for the World Championships.
