About us

Principals: Adele Keating and Nadia Nadry

We are Loop Academy – Highgate’s local performing arts school offering classes in Drama, Singing and Dancing every Saturday morning during term time.

We are award winning teachers and performers who aim to improve confidence and nurture imagination. We believe that the key to a child’s true potential is individuality.

We know how important it is for you to choose the right environment for your child to flourish.

Here is a little more from us on why we believe Loop Academy is a special place to be:


As we personally teach the students at loop we create bespoke lesson plans and performances each term using input and creativity from the students.


Loop is an open and friendly environment where we can have an ongoing conversation with our parents and students.


Highgate has a great sense of community and we love to take part in local events such as Fair in the Square.


We are very fortunate to have an active patron in Coronation Street’s Marc Baylis. Our students can benefit from Marc’s 13 years of experience in the industry through his popular Drama and Acting for TV workshops. He is a massive support to the school helping out at local community events and offering guidance on the Academy’s development.







We are both professional performers, which means we are constantly learning new skills and up to date trends which keep our classes fresh.

Ultimately the best way to see if we are for you is to come along and get involved! We are offering a FREE TASTER CLASS for any student. Please contact us on loopacademy@gmail.com or call us on 07758616774 to book your place.

As a team…

Adele and Nadia have performed together from a young age having attended the North’s leading stage school Scala School of performing arts. They studied together throughout high school then went on to train in the same degree and ended up living together at University (this was not intentional!) At University they co ran the Northumbria University Cheerleading Squad, leading the team to win gold medals at the British Cheerleading Association Championship Competitions. Their strong working relationship has been established for a number of years and their different strengths compliment their working relationship making them an inspiring and creative team. This was the platform for which they have launched loop academy of performing arts.
