My Teaching Life

“My final dancing qualifications Advance RAD 1978 was with some wonderful teachers Mrs Elsie Segus, Mrs Hunter, Mrs Pat Mc Donald (Gold Coast course), Miss Shirley Treacy and Ramsey School of Dance (Sydney- Two Weeks Full Time). I gained my full teachers qualifications in 1985.

I taught for my sister Mrs Pamela Lennon from 1975 to 1988 and I then commenced my own school in a small hall in Lawnton with sixty students and I had my first concert in the Aspley State High School hall.

In 1989 I opened a studio at Brendale in Moonbi street where I stayed for three years then moved onto 124 Southpine road where the main studio is presently located. My first six years and under Eisteddfod group in 1989 gained a first place in the Brisbane Eisteddfod and I have continued to place and gain awards at the eisteddfods ever since.

My second recital to the Twentieth recital was at the Carseldine Theatre QUT, then in 2009 ( Twenty-second recital) we moved to the Mueller College Auditorium for end of year recitals.
