LucyBallet for me has always been about having something that enables me to relax and express myself in a creative and fun way with also having the benefit of keeping fit without realizing it. I have been a student of Monica’s from the age of five and now thirteen years later I find myself on the opposite side of the classroom teaching children who were the same age as me when I first started dancing therefore I can empathize and apply my experience as a student while also being able to correct as a teacher which is a surreal but rewarding experience. Ballet practice the art of discipline, expression, correct posture and working in harmony with others. I find that it is truly amazing to watch children as young as five progress each week in their technique but also watch their love and understanding of the art form grow. Whether you dance to keep fit or you want a future in dance, ballet technique is at the core of every dance genre and here at MonicaLoughman Elite Ballet we strive to give you the best.
Leanne SextonI have been so fortunate to be a dancer and to train with Monica Loughman Elite ballet for so many years. It’s amazing now to be able to pass on what I have learned to the upcoming generation of dancers and to watch them improve and grow as both dancers and individuals while also continuously learning myself.
Lena LevinsHaving studied ballet in my native Russia under Marina Pomerantseva, one of the foremost ballerinas of our time, and performed all over the world I take great delight in passing on the traditions of Russian classical ballet education to my students. On moving to Ireland I performed with the Monica Loughman Company under the expert guidance of Monica Loughman. To be able to teach ballet is extremely rewarding. Ballet is considered to be a foundation for all types of dance, and those who are engaged in ballet are a model of physical perfection. It embodies beauty and elegance, gracefulness and exquisiteness, helps to develop coordination and aesthetic perception. I hope to continue to inspire my students for years to come.

Emma Hayward Quote‘ As a ballet dancer I have been priveleged to receive an outstanding ballet education from Monica Loughman, I now have a responsibility to pass on that information and inspiration to younger dancers. Teaching means I am also constantly learning and improving, which ultimately helps me become a better dancer.’
