Nicky Bate (School Owner and Principal)
I am a Primary School Teacher and a fully qualified Dance Teacher with the International
Dance Teachers Association. I trained at Sylvera School of Dance from the age of 4 in the
three disciplines of ballet, tap and jazz. Ballet being my particular passion. I had the most
wonderful dance teachers and they helped nurture my love of dance and encouraged me
to go on to become a dance teacher and set up my own dance school.
I have performed in numerous dance shows over the years. I have also choreographed and
appeared in many Pantomimes and Musicals at various local theatres; I have been part of a
chorus and have had lead roles. I have acted in a variety of plays of different genre, taking both main parts and supporting roles.
I love all aspects of performing arts and I feel very privileged that I am able to give others the opportunity to have access to this
Running a dance school combines my passions of dancing, teaching and performance. I am always looking for innovative ways
to make dancing and performing enjoyable and fulfilling.
