    Default Iris Jackson School of Dance - Anyone remember or attend classes pre 1958

    My mum, Paula Wood attended classes at the Iris Jackson School of Dance on Broadway, from 56-58. She was known for doing the acrobatics solos and solo tap to "the sunny side of the street". She was around 8. She also went to private lessons at Irises home.

    Apparently, the group was well known and performed all over Liverpool. at diverse venues from old folks homes, to The Empire and at Alder Hey hospital.

    She lost all her photos from that time and would love to get them back. Does anyone remember the school or my mum? If you do, reply to this thread.

    Thanks, Lou xx
