She successfully ran June Badon School of Dance and Gymnastics for 15 years before building the studio at its current location in 1993. She changed the name to Lorna Badon School of Fine Arts and enjoyed 36 years teaching children the art of dance. In 1991, Alice Grimes, a former student began teaching for her.
