Julie managed to teach us our wedding dance in a fairly short space of time. It was exactly what we wanted and we managed to pull it off on the day. Many thanks for your patience Julie, much appreciated, Nick and Liz Ps. And it was fun!! Nick & Liz 11/20/2017
My husband and I have been going to John Hutson's dance school for many years. We started with the group classes and enjoyed it so much we decided to start taking private lessons. We are by no means of the imagination natural dancers, but our teacher, Julie, has somehow managed to make us look as though we know what we're doing and we even managed to pass an exam! Julie, in particular, is a wonderful teacher, with an amazing amount of patience and dedication to her students and above all makes our lessons enormously enjoyable and great fun. I would have no hesitation in recommending the school to anyone who wants to learn to dance for purely social reasons or for those who want to be more serious and take exams. Gill 10/20/2017

Their teaching has given us a real love of ballroom and latin dancing. Absolutely love our lessons, wish we had started when we were younger. Pat & Bryan 09/22/2017
I have been dancing at J Hutson School for several years, as has my teenage son. My son does exams and competitions, I dance just for the pleasure of learning a skill. Group or private lessons; John and Julie provide you with the basics, adapting their style from meticulous foot and arm placement to just getting around the room depending on your motivation!

From non-dancers to bronze medallists in 3 years. We have had a fantastic time learning to dance. Julie, our teacher, has been wonderful and the lessons are such fun. She's not just our teacher, but has become a good friend and is so easy to get on with. We have private lessons and also join in the classes sometimes. We look forward to our lesson each week - it is one of our highlights. Hilary and Marc Pepperman 09/10/2017
I have been going to the John Hutson School of Dancing for two years. I dance with my female friend. It is possible to go as a couple, with a friend or alone. If the latter, you will be partnered with Julie or John. When we joined the group, neither of us had danced. Now we have a knowledge of about 16 dances and are fairly competent in half of those. It is great to be able to dance. It gives me such a feel-good feeling, and keeps me fit and healthy. I would recommend it to people of all ages. Once you get the bug, you won't stop!

“I joined the John Hutson School of Dancing two years ago, & now attend the improvers class. I have always wanted to learn to dance but never had the time before, I am so very glad that I can do it now. It has become a part of my life. It is lovely to be able to get up & dance (properly) at social occasions.
