    No one can stop me dancing.

    This sounds more natural to my native (British) ears.

    I (BE) agree with Mini Cooper that the prevent me sentence is a bit formal although perfectly correct (and who knows, maybe formality is required here ...).

    But I would add a "from": "No one can stop me from dancing."

    "No one can stop me dancing" surely has two meanings, one of which aint included in "Niemand kann mich daran hindern, zu tanzen."

    @ Kitty:

    Yes, whether you say no one or nobody it is all the same. But your sentence is also ambiguous. It means a) "Niemand kann mich daran hindern, zu tanzen", b) (eher lustig, oder vielleicht traurig je nach Qualität des Tanzes) "Wenn ich tanze, kann mich niemand zum Aufhören bringen".

    I think the best translation would be, "Nobody can keep me from dancing".

    @ Todd: Fine with me too.
