Jen H. from Hales Corners, WI

"We started at Beglan nearly 4 years ago and it was one of the best decisions we've made for

our kids.  My son and two daughters attend classes here and I have zero complaints.  Sean

and the other teachers challenge the kids, inspire them, and push them to work hard for

whatever that child wants~one of the things I appreciate the most is there is no pressure on

them from the teachers to be perfect; the focus is on trying, learning from what you did,

and then trying again, all the while *enjoying* dance.  My children are treated with dignity

and respect, and it is obvious that the well-being of the whole child, and even the family,

is the primary concern.
The parents at Beglan Academy are supportive of each other's kids, and I think the mentality

of being in this together and cheering on each other's kids is a great reflection of how Sean

runs his school and the atmosphere he and the other teachers have created at Beglan.  We

feel very blessed to be part of this school.
If you are looking for a place for your child to grow in confidence and skills, this is it.  Not

only are the people great, but the instruction is top-notch.  We have seen our children blossom here, both in technical dance skills and personally.  We would highly recommend Beglan Academy if you are looking for an Irish dance school in Milwaukee!"

"We currently have 2 daughters that dance with Beglan. We were at another school in the area for many years before making a change to Beglan. We honestly could not be more pleased with the decision that we made. The entire Academy welcomed our family in. We've had varying levels of dancers over the years and have never experienced a more positive, encouraging environment. This is an environment where there are no "politics". I know that Sean has the best intentions for all of the children. Trophies are fun and a great thing to earn, but the positive caring environment is why we're there."

​Russ H. from Glendale, WI

"Our daughter has danced at Begaln academy for 8 years.  In this time we have had an

absolutely great experience with Sean Beglan and the other teachers.  When we started

we did not know anything about Irish Dance. Sean's approach to get kids intersted in dance

without the pressure of competition is spot on.  Sean never pressured us to do anything.

 He leaves it up to the kids and parents to decide how far they want to go and he and

his team support the family's decisions.
Eight years later, our daughter is a 5 time World Qualifier, finished 17th in the 2017

World Championships (medalist).  We have been to North American Championships,

Mid-American Championships, All Scot's and seemingly hundreds of feis's.  We have met

people from all over the world and many of these people have commented about how

classy and professional the Beglan Academy approach is to Irish Dance.  Additionally,

many families from other academy's have come to Begaln because of the low key

atmosphere and top notch instruction.  
Beglan Academy of Irish Dance is the crem de la crem."

Kristin P. from Milwaukee, WI

"Our daughter has been at Beglan for nearly three years, and she has really enjoyed her experience. She was slow to warm up to dancing, but everyone had great patience with her. I have seen her confidence and enjoyment soar over this time. The communication from the school is good, everyone is approachable and happy to help as you're learning more about performances, feises, etc. I will continue to highly recommend Beglan to anyone interested in starting Irish dance."

Jodie D. from West Bend, WI

"I have nothing but great things to say about Beglan Academy of Irish Dance!  Sean is a great teacher and has my daughter's best interest in mind! All of the teachers are interactive and accessible! My daughter has been with the studio for 8 years and I'm grateful for all she has learned! She absolutely loves to dance and perform!"
