Welcome to the Sinéad Loughnane Academy

We offer a comprehensive range of dance classes for children from the age of 3.

But it is never too late to start dancing, so whilst many students start their dancing education with an introduction to the delights of Ballet, they could equally pursue one of our other disciplines such as Tap, Modern and Street dancing.

Dance Classes

The Academy offers professional tutelage during weekdays, evenings and Saturdays in various dance disciplines.

The timetable page offers more details.

Lessons are accessible on a group basis; one to one lessons may be offered following discussion and trial with Miss Sinéad.

Teacher Training

The Sinead Loughnane Academy Teacher Training Centre is an Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) Approved Dance Centre tutoring all units of Level 3 Diploma in Dance Instruction and Level 4 Diploma in Dance Education in Modern Theatre Dance and Tap Dance. We are based in the Elgar Centre Upton, Northamptonshire just a few minutes from Junction 15A of the M1.


Since I was child I have always carried a great passion for dance, and I have always wanted to instil and share that passion with others.

Finally in 2001, I founded this Dance Academy, with only a handful of students and classes to start with. Over the last 10 years I have begun to realise my dream of creating an established dance school offering tutoring in all aspects of Ballet, Modern, Tap and Street dance, and the academy now has over 250 students.
