About Us

How it all began

About Us – Stars Dance Academy is a Stockport-based organisation committed to sharing the enjoyment of Dance. It was founded by Sally Tommony in January 2012. After beginning Ballet, Tap and Modern dance classes at age 2.5, Sally developed a love for Dance and Music. She then went on to continue dancing all the way through Primary & High School as well as taking up Piano lessons at the age of 9. Sally completed A Level Dance & Music along with her Grade 8 Piano aged 18 and then went on to study all aspects of Dance Performance, Teaching, Choreography and Theory at Edge Hill University.

A love for teaching

Sally went on to dance professionally after graduating with a First Class Honours in Dance and then went on to open the Academy in response to her love for teaching. Since opening over 11 years ago, the business has developed in several different directions. Stars Dance Academy takes pride in offering something for everyone from early years all the way through to adults.

Sally is supported by a committed team of professionals including Kerry, the Academy’s other main teacher and Sarah, an Early Years Specialist.
