The Lytton School of Dance was formed by Judith Lathbury and her mother in 1960, with the aim of teaching the art of dance in a friendly, happy and social environment.
Judith is a qualified teacher and life member of the IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association) and a qualified teacher with the MASD (Midland Academy of Stage Dancing). As the dancing school has grown over the years, students who are working towards their teaching certificates assist her in class, as part of their development as a teacher, or when qualified take their own class.
Dance classes are held on a weekly basis in Penn, Wolverhampton and at Coven and Wombourne in Staffordshire. There are various types of dance taught to students from the age of 3 years through to adult; these include Tap, Ballet, Acrobatic, Disco and Stage Dancing.
Each year medal tests and dancing examinations are held prior to the annual dancing display which is held at the Grand Theatre Wolverhampton, with a repeat performance at the Mill Theatre Sedgley.
Pupils have progressed to be members of local amateur theatrical companies as well as making a career in the professional Theatre where many have taken leading roles.
