Lossie Entertainment Academy
Lossie Entertainment Academy originally opened its doors to the public in 1997 as The Classical Dance Centre. Now twenty years on (rebranded, expanded and refurbished) Lossie Entertainment Academy is one of the only independent colleges North of the Central Belt of Scotland to offer classes and courses in Acrobatic Arts, Dance, Fitness, Music, Musical Theatre and Sound Production. Described by the Scottish Qualifications Authority as “demonstrating an exceptionally high body of work that meets and on many occasions, surpasses the SQA requirements" the Academy shot to fame in 2014 when the late Hollywood producer and TV Celebrity David Gest, teamed up with co-owners Diane Aspinall and Tish Tindall to produce a musical about Robert Burns.
Monday to Friday, the Lossiemouth Academy plays hosts to full time performing arts students from all over Scotland. Every evening and weekend over 200 children and adults (from all over the North East of Scotland) attend classes.
At the centre of the learning and teaching at LossieEA is a deep-rooted ethos of excellence and empathy for all ages and abilities, a unique sense of community and a passionate desire to endlessly develop and promote local, national and international talent.
