The Buckhurst Hill and Woodford School of Dancing was established in 1922.
Sonia Bond and Juliet Locks are the present principals of the Buckhurst Hill & Woodford School of Dancing. Sonia Bond’s two daughters, Emma Jane Padfield and Lucy Pohl are full time dance teachers for the school. This family run school is the longest established dance school in the area and continues to grow with branches now in Ongar and Thornwood.
Classes are offered in Cecchetti Classical Ballet, Classical Greek, Jazz, Tap and Pointework. Children are also encouraged to participate in festivals, competitions and an annual Summer Showcase held at the Harlow Playhouse.
