Wendy Bates School of Dancing

Welcome to Wendy Bates School Of Dancing


The dancing school aims to offer a broad selection of dance styles, to suit all ages and abilities.

The dancing school was established in 1979 when Wendy qualified as an Associate Member of The National Association Of Teachers Of Dancing. Since that time Wendy has spent fourteen years teaching dance and P.E. at a private school while establishing her own classes and teaching for Jean Blessington in Burton.

In 1986 Wendy took over the running of the dancing school from Jean as a wedding present.

In January 2012 Wendy has been made a Theatrical Examiner with NATD.

The dancing school operates on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from:

Unit 6

Wood Street

Burton on Trent

DE14 3AB

In September 2019 we moved into a new home, after having been based at Shobnall Leisure Complex since October 2017, after the closure of the Imex Business Centre. We have two superb dance studios, a waiting area and free parking.

The school enters pupils for examinations as well as giving dancing displays at school fetes, nursing homes and charity events.

Wendy offers private lessons to couples wishing to learn a first wedding dance, private classes are limited, please enquire for availability.
