Private Latin American Dancing Lessons

East London & Essex Longest Established Dance School.


Are you looking to be taught Latin American Dancing Privately?

If you are then we think you have come to just the right place, as we have been teaching Latin American Dancing at the John Hutson School of Dancing in South Woodford we for nearly 50 years.

Latin American Dance is such a popular style of dance, and it has been made even more popular recently with the introduction of BBC’s “Strictly Come Dancing”. Latin Dance is full of catchy rhythms in the music that evoke such great feelings that are only enhanced even more by movement of your body to rhythm and the beat. Some say that the true spirit of Latin Dance comes from the soul, so let your soul experience the excitement, romance and joy of Latin American Dance in South Woodford.

Well you if you are looking to experience the joy and excitement for yourself in a one to one lesson let us at the John Hutson School of Dancing in South Woodford take you by the hand and teach you just what Latin American Dance is all about with our private one to one (or perhaps a couple) Latin American Dancing Lessons. These are taught by our highly experienced and professional dance coaches. Learn to Jive, Rumba or maybe to Tango like an expert in less time, with our expert one to one tuition lessons.

With Latin American Dance comes not only amazing and exciting music but also some fantastic styles of dance that includes:

Cha Cha Cha
Paso Doble


Just describing some of the styles of dance really shows the true meaning of Latin, such as the Rumba. Quite often referred to as the Queen of Latin dances, sultry and romantic, while displaying strength and confidence. Or the Paso Doble, distinctly Spanish in its origin so imagine if you will the Matadors in the bull ring, tempting the bull to attacks while quickly moving to get out of its way in a flamenco style.


There are so many reasons that people learn to Latin American Dance. It’s great for:

Improving Health
Increasing Fitness
Developing Friendships
Improving Confidence
Making You Laugh & Smile

Dance doesn’t only teach you wonderful skills but also its great for your health, some could say almost your complete “five a day” for general well-being.
