Learn Ballroom And Latin Dancing in a fun atmosphere

Nicks Dance School is dedicated to and is the legacy of its creator, Nick Peacock, whose passion was to teach others to learn and to love to dance as much as he did. His partner and now School Principal, Terri Bodell continues to follow in his footsteps.

Both Terri and Nick were taught by Sallianne Cornell, a Fellow of the IDTA,  and originally began their teaching careers at Sallianne’s Dance Studio until her retirement. They bought the adult Ballroom & Latin dance school from Sallianne in 2010 and continued her goal of helping others to find a love of dance at Nick’s Dance School.

Many people think about trying a dance class for some time before they actually take the plunge.

We know and appreciate that it can seem quite intimidating to attend a class for that first time, not knowing what to expect, but at Nicks Dance School once you take that first step we know you’ll grow in confidence, meet new people and really have fun dancing in no time.

Nicks Dance School offers fun and friendly adult Ballroom & Latin lessons located in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

We believe that learning to dance isn’t just about learning the steps, it’s about having fun and laughter along the way.
So whatever your reason for coming along – perhaps it’s to learn a new skill, or you want to get fit and exercise, maybe have fun and meet new people, or to increase your confidence on the dance-floor for that ‘special occasion’ or for your planned cruise holiday – we will help you to enjoy learning to dance.
At Nick’s Dance School our lessons are an easy-going, fun introduction to dancing for newcomers and experienced dancers alike – all levels all abilities.

You’ll be setting the dance floor on fire in no time

Regular classes and beginner adult courses in Ballroom and Latin are held throughout the year: for full information see our classes page
