Dance the afternoon away in Blackpool’s nostalgic Tower Ballroom, or enjoy sociable evenings of dance in sun-drenched Cyprus.

Thanks to our talented hosts, interesting workshops and evenings of social dancing, anyone – from enthusiastic novices to seasoned dancers – will be able to improve their fancy footwork on these fun and friendly Ballroom and Latin American dance holidays.

Nick Miles

What do you think is the most interesting or exciting part of your job?

The most exciting part is the sense of achievement I get from seeing people improve as the holiday goes on.

What is your favourite style of dance? And do you have a particular dancing experience that sticks in your mind?

I love the sensuality of the slow foxtrot. One particular dance memory that I have is when I was chosen to dance for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition to dance for Princess Diana.

What is different about a Saga dancing holiday?

Everyone, no matter how much ability they have can learn to dance on a Saga dance holiday. Over the years I has seen many life-long friendships made, with the same guests returning time and time again not just for the dancing but for the company and friendship.

Do you have any interesting stories or anecdotes from your time hosting Saga dancing holidays?

I remember one particular very hot evening in Malta during a Saga dance holiday, when we held an impromptu dance session on the veranda of the hotel as the sun set. Pure magic!
