Dancing In The 1950s/1960s - a Memory of Luton.
A Lutonian from birth, attended St Matthews Primary School and then Hitchin Road Sec Modern. A favourite past time of mine was dancing. I attended the Barratt School of Dancing in Gordon Street under the tutorship of Mr Gaddesdon. Old Time dancing, Scottish dancing and the Friday night dancing to the pop music the day. Have searched high and low and can find no reference to this dancing school. Also did old time dancing competitions at the old Waller Street Baths (in the winter) and the Cresta Ballroom in Alma Street. Then as one grew up we progressed to the Majestic Ballroom where we use see and dance to many of the new bands like Freddie and the Dreamers and all the others. Does anyone else remember these venues?
