In 2014, Christy Burke became the owner of Prestige Dance Studio in Midlothian, Virginia.
Christy started to dance at the age of five in Jacksonville, Florida. She moved to Austin, Texas in 1988 and continued her dance education at Shirley McPhail’s School of Dance, where she was also in their Performing Company. Along the way she fell in love with dance.
At the age of 14 she moved to Richmond, Virginia where she danced on Midlothian High School’s dance team, performed for both of Midlothian High School’s show choirs (City Lights & Just for Show), as well as studio and competitive dancing. She attended Radford University where she received a Bachelors of Science Degree in Dance in 2001. She was a member of the RU “Rockers” dance team all four years in college.
Christy’s dance teaching experience includes 13 years at Jessica Morgan’s School of Dance, coaching Midlothian High School’s “Trojanette” dance team, and choreographing for both the Clover Hill and Midlothian High School show choirs. She has choreographed dozens of numbers for the “Company” at Jessica Morgan’s School of Dance, many of which have received high scores and awards.
Christy and her husband, Josh, are blessed to have two beautiful daughters, Katelyn and Courtney, who are both students at Prestige Dance Studio and love dancing just as much as their Mom.
Christy feels blessed to have the opportunity to teach with so many talented educators and work with so many amazing dancers. She loves having the opportunity to educate her students and teach them an appreciation, and hopefully a love, for dance.
