Carl Alan Award

In February 2011 Miss Pat was awarded the Carl Alan Outstanding Service to Dance Award - an Oscar of
the world of dance. The last time a posthumous award was made was to Victor Sylvester
whom older folks amongst you may remember! In other words it is a very rare event.

Angela Rippon hosted what was a very special occasion with the evening finishing with a
remarkable cabaret featuring the five times World Champions of Lan and Ballroom who
had all travelled from various far flung places in the world. It really was a night to
remember and I know Miss Pat would have been very proud.
