Abbie Coughlan



Abbie graduated from LIPA and has worked mainly in the Jazz Dance industry, both nationally and internationally.

She has performed on cruise ships, in cabaret shows, dinner spectacles and tribute acts, including Vegas Showgirls UK. As dance captain and lead dancer, she has had responsibility for rehearsals, sourcing costumes and communication with technical teams. 

Abbie is currently a dance teacher at LIPA Sixth Form College where she specializes in Jazz and Musical Theatre styles. Her experience has given her a deep understanding as to the requirements of professional performance, and her continuing activity in the industry provides currency, networks and links for her students, preparing them for future study and auditions.

She is delighted to have been asked to be part of the LIPA 4-19 teaching team.
