What Makes Burke Connolly’s Program so Unique?

Burke Connolly has developed a curriculum to ensure each child thrives in class and on stage.  Each class level builds on a specific skill set so that students smoothly and naturally progress to the next level as they achieve the necessary skills. 

Our formula is successful because it is based on giving parents and students access to a variety oftools in and outside of class to help students advance in their skills! 

Our teachers also understand that not all parents were Irish dancers as kids (and even those who were find that a lot has changed!!).  Because of that, we have developed tons of Parent-friendly guides to help you understand what you child is learning, how they are progressing, and the whys behind their road to success!
