Find out why Parents and Students alike love Burke Connolly!


Dad, Justin Bevington - College Park:

"[Atlanta Irish Dance by] Burke Connolly is so much more than a dance school. It is a place where our two daughters have learned about music and dance, but also teamwork, physical fitness, and the value of hard work. Emma and Erin are terrific role models that focus on building the kids’ confidence. The girls have made great friendships at Burke Connolly and look forward to every class! As parents, we have enjoyed the friendships of the other BC families and appreciate the positive influence the school and the BC community have had on our daughters."

Mom, K. Murphy - Lake Claire:

“I think you all have been fantastic. Quite possibly one of the best so far for extra curricular activities that I've dealt with.  Both of my daughters have learned an impressive amount so far in just the 3.5 months they’ve attended. Emma & Erin are really communicative, easy to work with, flexible & have created a very friendly & welcoming atmosphere at the school. My girls skip all around town now! We have had a great time at Burke Connolly!”

Mom, S. Holness - East Atlanta:

“Over 4 years ago my daughter attended a “Bring a Friend” to class at [Atlanta Irish Dance].   While we waited one whole year to officially register (despite my daughters constant ‘nagging’) after that day we have never looked back on becoming a part of the Burke Connolly family.   We are not remotely of Irish decent; but we were welcomed with open arms by co-founders Emma Burke and Erin Connolly.  Both Emma and Erin have created an Irish Dance School that teaches Irish dance steps but even more importantly they have incorporated values, teamwork, discipline and the true spirit of the Irish culture. 

In each practice, they incorporate teamwork, values, discipline and a little fun that each student can take throughout their everyday lives.   I am so glad for that “Bring a Friend” day to [Atlanta Irish Dance], my daughter has excelled academically and within the Irish Dance sport (qualifying for the 2019 World’s Irish Dance Championship), but more importantly my daughter has develop core fundamental values and teamwork that she will carry throughout her life.  So happy to have met Emma and Erin.  Keep up the great work with my girl you are making a big difference in her life.”    

Mom, S. Mahony - Virginia Highlands:

"We tried ballet, but it lacked excitement for her. When we found Atlanta Irish Dance by Burke Connolly, she was able to combine athleticism and artistry, plus she loves the competitive element!"
