At 11 yrs old she was awarded a coveted place boarding at The Dance School of Scotland where she gained her RAD Advanced Ballet, ISTD National, Modern and Tap qualifications and was selected to perform with Scottish Ballet, Scottish Opera and for HRH Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

During her time there, she performed & toured internationally with contracts in Cabaret, Film, TV, Musical Theatre, Modelling and a Classical Ariel Ballet commission spanning 5 yrs with America’s ‘Flying By Foy’.
In 2001, Lyn and her family returned to Scotland where she established herself as a director and lecturer in the creative arts. Her company ‘The Ballet Schools’ enjoyed many successes with her teachers, students & adult dancers including 100% pass rate in both RAD, ISTD and BATD dance societies. Some of her past students have progressed on to Scottish Ballet, The Dance School of Scotland, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland & Laine Theatre Arts London.
