"There have to be some perks to being CEO and so I hope that those of you who don’t know June will allow me a little indulgence. June has just announced her retirement after decades of running a very successful dance school. It benefited and thrived from her determination, drive and love for dance. June is also a magnificent supporter of bbodance. I first met June when she was a Trustee and the organisation was going through a very difficult period. She was extremely kind and welcoming to me personally and I quickly realised her passion for dance; there will only be one June Pughe! I send her our very best wishes."
