Summers from 1980 through 2001 she traveled with the Hoctor Dance Caravan training dance instructors and dancers all over the United States. In 1980 she and Jim moved their Dance Studio to the historic downtown area purchasing the T.A. Bray building on Houston. She has been the driving force behind the quality growth of Country Day on the Hill. Her son, Paul Allen, resides in Southlake and daughter, Ellen, in Maypearl.
