White School of Dancing

The White School of Dancing was held at the John Boscoe Hall in Benfleet High Road.
Does anyone remember this little dancing club? It was run by George and Molly White one evening a week after school.

The hall  stood in the High Road virtually opposite what is now ‘Belgravia Florist’.

I attended with my sister for the princely sum of half a crown per person a session (must have been pre 1971). My neighbours Tim and Marianne Hill also attended. I think the Mottram twins were members too.  My sister Karen Lipscomb went on to do all kinds of dance exams that I never aspired to.

{A search for a photo of the hall has proved unsuccessful, therefore if anyone has one of either the outside or the inside that they would like to share with us, we would be pleased to hear from them.}

  • My sister and I attended the dance classes early 1970’s and enjoyed every minute of it…except when Molly made me wiggle my hips in the rumba!

    We’re both in our late 50’s now and still dance the jive and chachacha at family parties!

    Happy days! Shaun & Gale Browne
