Nicola Peros

I commenced my dance journey relatively late, as they say, at the age of 10, right here in Barry’s Memorial Hall. My initial steps into this world were guided by Miss Fay Vaughan Williams. During that period, scholarships were being offered by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), and I was fortunate to be among several individuals selected for this opportunity. At the age of 16, I was honoured to receive a full scholarship to The Hammond in Chester.

As my career progressed, I found myself drawn towards the path of teaching, spanning from the Middle East and back to my homeland. I hold memberships with esteemed organisations such as the Royal Academy of Dance, Rambert Grades, and I am also a licensed Silver Swans instructor. Additionally, I have ventured into teaching Progressing Ballet Techniques and have attended Royal Ballet Inspired seminars, enriching my expertise.

My passion lies in nurturing and developing talent, not only for aspiring professionals but also for those who dance for recreational enjoyment. I firmly believe that dance is an art form accessible to everyone, and my mission is to spread this inclusive message.
