Welcome to Northern Soul Dance



 Although we had a brief spell of dancing again, unfortunately the new tier system and current very strict restrictions mean we have to stay home and stay safe.

We hope to be back in action in the new year as soon as restrictions are relaxed. Keep watching the 'Calendar of Events' for all updates.

This pandemic has affected all of us in different ways.  We are not going to be negative about the future but very positive.  Although 2020 has been a year full of uncertainty and restrictions, the future of Northern Soul is certain, it just may take a little time, but we will all get back to the music and dance that we love. 

For me, the lockdown has been very challenging as teaching dance is my main job!  Being at home has enabled me to look at what we can do in  2021 and beyond, and I can tell you that the future is exciting.  There are many new projects on the horizon and many more Northern Soul events for you.

Always check my 'Calendar of Events' page for all dance sessions; these will be updated to take into account restrictions.

Obviously as we are still in the middle of a pandemic, I have put together some rules and guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone during my dance sessions.  Please wait outside the studio, or inside if there are no other people there, I will come to get you. Please wear your masks while outside the studios and keep them on until you are safely in my studio. I will take control and once you are inside my studio.  Please adhere to social distancing once inside the studio and please do not touch any equipment. Please bring your own water etc.

I want everyone to feel safe while you are with me and I can assure you that my risk assessment is second to none. Your safety is my concern and I will ensure that you will have a great time in a safe environment.  

All my classes and workshops will be drastically reduced in numbers of places and all places must be pre-booked with Sharon.

We are still able to perform Video Lessons if you wish and these can be booked with Kenny or Sharon.

We have some lessons available on video which can be sent to you via Whatsapp and these you can do at home.  You can chose from absolute beginners videos to the more challenging combination videos.  All are available by texting or emailing me. Please note these videos are still covered by my copyright and must not be shared to any other person or media. Also available are private lessons via WhatsApp video or skype. Videos are £10 and online private tuition is £30 / half hour. 

Plus you can keep fit and keep the faith at home with one of our dance DVD's.

Make this the year you get out on the floor!

Welcome to Northern Soul Dance, where you can buy dance tuition DVD's, gift tokens and book in to one of our fantastic Northern Soul Dance workshops in the north, in London and across the UK.

We offer dance classes to suit all levels - we work with schools and community groups - we travel all over the world, introducing young and old to Northern Soul. Get in touch and talk to us about your event - we can make it even more special!

Want to dance with us? Learn with an established, professional dance instructor, renowned on the global Northern Soul scene:


Member British Dance Council, Member International Dance Council, Fellow of United Kingdom Alliance Professional Teachers of Dance and International Adjudicator

As a professional dance coach, adjudicator and choreographer, Sharon Sullivan thoroughly understands dance and music. With a BSc in Psychology and many years of teaching experience, Sharon identifies individual student needs and finds the best way to help you learn the steps and understand the music, encouraging you to dance with confidence at any level.

Sharon has been teaching Northern Soul Dance since 2008 and was the first person to break down, script and teach this iconic style.

She can teach Northern Soul dance moves to anyone who wants to learn or improve their style. If there is a particular move you want to master, she’ll break it down and teach you exactly how it works. Sharon can take you from beginner level all the way through to dance teacher training - and everything in between.

If you want to dance but think you have no rhythm, no co-ordination or haven't the confidence to get up and have a go, Sharon can teach you.

Take the first step - get in touch!

If you can’t make it to a workshop, don’t worry - beginners and intermediates Northern Soul DVD's are available via our shop - choreographed and produced by Sharon and her team. These are a must if you’re just starting out, or as a reminder of what you’ve already learned.

We can teach in your area if you have a number of people who want to learn together and a small local venue or studio - we can come to you - contact us to find out more.

Don't sit out the next dance - be part of it!
