Sue Latham trained with the late Madame Helena Lehmiski and after completing a teacher training course, she taught at the Birmingham Theatre School. During this time she danced professionally in and around the Midlands.

In 1966 she opened her first school in Birmingham and was also asked to choreograph many productions with Operatic Societies and professional shows in the country. Since then many of her students have graduated to examining, teaching or professional work, including West End productions and television. Twenty years ago she opened a school in Redditch, Worcestershire and more recently took over a school in Droitwich Spa.

As an examiner and adjudicator she has travelled to many parts of the world, including Australia, Cyprus, Holland and Norway.

In the summer of 1998 she was very honoured and privileged to be asked to adjudicate the very first dance festival to be held in Sri Lanka. This proved to be most successful and she was asked back again in the Spring of 1999.

Miss Latham is also the area chairman for the West Midlands Area of the British and International Federation of Festivals. She is also on the panel of adjudicators for All England Dance and the British Federation of Festivals and has also obtained her Post Graduate Certificate in Adjudication.

She would like to wish all competitors a very happy and successful Festival. Good luck to you all!
