Over 50 Years Of History
When We Began
The John Hutson School Of Dancing has been running Ballroom & Latin American dance lessons at the Memorial Hall in South Woodford for about 50 years. Originally established by John Hutson prior to 1966 at St Phillip & St James Church, The John Hutson School Of Dancing came into its being in late 1966 having moved it into the Memorial Hall.
The Memorial Hall itself has not changed that much since John started the school back in 1966, although with a recent restoration and the introduction of the new dance floor, there have been great improvements in this a wonderful local venue that we are extremely proud to call our “home”.
The Ethos Behind The School
Johns ethos from day one has been about the love of teaching Dance to those who want to learn, whilst creating an all inclusive social activity in the local community for anyone who wants to give dance a try. Having been established for 50 years this demonstrates the quality of the school and what it brings to the local community.
Some come along to our classes looking to meet someone to partner them, and to join in for the social experience.
Many of the pupils come from Woodford & the surrounding areas such as Wanstead, Chingford & Loughton, and we do find a fair number of new students also come from other locations outside the immediate area.
It is very noticeable that demand for lessons & classes increases each year when ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ in shown on the television, and it has had such tremendous positive influence for the dance school and dance itself.

With the appeal of styles of dance such as Ballroom Dancing & Latin American Dance, we attract people of all ages, nationality, social backgrounds and skills.
