[26 APR 99] CHRISTINE ODDY PRESS RELEASE
Oddy Visits Pattison Academy

Family memories will come flooding back for Euro MP Christine Oddy when she visits the scene of her childhood ballet lessons next week.

And there will be even more nostalgia for the Oddy family as Christine will be accompanied by her father Eric who took his first steps in ballroom dancing when he attended the Pattison school of dancing in the 1930s.

Now the school where countless Coventrians learned the rudiments of waltz, quickstep and tango, has grown into the Pattison Dancing Academy and College, offering a full range of academic subjects with dance and theatre just one of a number of extra studies available to its 140 pupils.

On Monday 26 April Christine and her father will attend morning assembly before touring the college, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, with Miss Pattison and her daughter Elizabeth McConnell who is Joint Principal.

Christine said:

"Betty Pattison or Miss Pat as she is known to everyone - is a Coventry legend and was part of my childhood and thousands of other people in this city. It is really pleasing that her work is still going strong through both the school and its high academic standards, and the 700 pupils who attend Pattison Theatre Arts for dance and drama lessons every week."
