Great news about carlisle dance academy my daughter is over the moon! This dance school doesnt seem to have anything to do with wendy though as they do not mention her on the facebook page? i think they deserve the credit for setting up and starting from scratch at this hard time not just being wendy allens old teachers. If it was anything to do with wendy allen surely they would be using her studios? Well done to the girls and good luck with your new project everyone is behind you. Also wishing wendy a speedy recovery back to full health her school was a big part of our lives xxx

Great News. The old Wendy Allen School Teachers are opening up a new dance school in Wigton and Carlisle. It can be found on Facebook named Carlisle Dance Academy.
I can think of no greater way to honour what Allens Dance school has achieved over the last 9 decades. Her children are giving the community back what was tragically lost when Allens Dance school closed suddenly.. This is the best result for everyone. It takes the pressure from Mrs Allen and allows her to focus on her health and takes care of the families who need dance in their lives.
Get well soon Wendy and Good luck to Wendy Allens old teachers in putting it all back together and reopening the old school rebranded. Lets hope it builds on the old school successes and contiunues itself for another 90 years.

Yes dancing queen, I've heard a rumour too that there is going to be a new dancing school run by someone who was at Wendy's. This will be great for all those children who love dancing. Good luck to them.

I have heard this too, wouldn't it be great if it was true. Does any body know?

Sad news of one's predicament. Let your fellow tutors carry on, so as no one will feel let down. Its not about schools or business. I'm sure Pat would let others carry on, it's an instituition.

Does St George's Day make you proud to be English?

Yes. It's a national day to celebrate all things English

No. All this nationalism turns me off - and he wasn't English

It's Shakespeare's birthday. That's something to be proud of
