About us

Dance Coach and Choreographer, Adjudicator and Teacher Trainer
Owner: Chameleon Dance and Soul - Danceology - Northern Soul Dance

Sharon Sullivan is a Member of the British Dance Council, Member of the International Dance Council, an International Dance Adjudicator and a Fellow of the United Kingdom Alliance Professional Teachers of Dance. She has a City & Guilds in Fashion & Design, a BSc (Hons) Degree in Psychology and an MSc in Nutrition. Sharon is currently designing unique clothing, shoes and accessories and putting together a teaching programme for the Northern Soul scene.

Sharon is a professional dance teacher and a lifelong northern soul dancer who in 2008 painstakingly broke down the basic moves and steps so they can be taught to anyone who wants to learn. She can build your confidence so that you can get up and dance, and express yourself through this fantastic music - a very special experience.
sharon-and-kennySharon has been dancing since she was 8 years old. Her career began in Preston, Lancashire with Nick Attack, a fantastic dancer and a truly nurturing teacher.  She has been dancing multiple different styles ever since. Sharon has represented England and Scotland in major championships and was a British Finalist four times. On retiring from competitive dance, she studied for her professional teaching certificates including hip-hop and street dance, and opened her own dance studio in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
Sharon's passion for Northern Soul began when she got hooked on the music at the age of 15. When a friend asked if she could teach him to dance in the Northern Soul style - although people often think this style can’t be taught - as a dance teacher she could not resist trying to break down the moves.

It took several months but Sharon successfully scripted a variety of basic moves and started teaching them. Since then, she has successfully taught hundreds of people. Sharon continues to strive to keep the scene alive and fresh, keeping people dancing and introducing new people to the Northern Soul family.
Kenny James has been dancing and competing since he was 7 years old. He is a naturally gifted dancer with an innate skill for any type of dance, who’s been teaching Northern Soul for well over a year. Kenny is a drum and bass DJ who mixes his own music, and loves the smooth sounds, different tones and layers that make up Northern Soul and motown.

Kenny is completely dedicated to teaching each and every student and can develop your dance repertoire to include easy and complex Northern Soul moves - his spins are something to behold! Kenny regularly travels around the country teaching at parties and events and really gets a party going with his relaxed style and lively personality. If you spot Kenny on the dancefloor - once seen, never forgotten - he’s one of our stars!

In training: MIKE AND PETER

Sharon is currently teacher training two eager students in London. Mike and Peter are currently working hard on the Professional Dance Teachers syllabus. Once they qualify, they will be available to teach you in and around London - they’ll be a great addition to our growing team and we are really looking forward to seeing them in action at the front of a class.
