From an article in the Evening Echo in 1988

The hunt is on for Geor­gette Juveniles who have grown up and lost touch with their musical men­tor.

The Georgettes celebrating their 50th anniversary and plan a get-together for all the pupils who made their dancing debut courtesy of Georgette Gray.

They celebrated another season of Canvey Carnival Association with a summer review involving three-year-olds to dancers in their 30s.

They showed off their skills in ballet, tap and modern in scenes from traditional pantos and other sketches.

About 90 Georgette Juven­iles took part in the show at Canvey’s Paddocks community centre but over the years Georgette has accumulated more than 1,000 juveniles.

Last year, as many pupils were well over the juvenile threshold, she changed the name to Georgette Stage School. But you cannot keep a good thing down and the old name will not go away.

Did you know at first 16-year-old Georgette used her bed­room as a dancing school and charged a penny a lesson, or later when she used Fielder’s Holiday Camp.
