The Deborah Capon School of Dance began some 40 years ago when my dear late wife Deborah Pafitis was a young woman and we moved to Whitstable.

They were very happy years during which Debbie’s reputation grew and spread through her work not only teaching in her own school and college but through her many shows, her choreography and festival work, and later with the examining, committee work and lecturing within the ISTD she did both in the UK and overseas.

It is therefore with very great sadness that due to Debbie’s sudden death on the 31st July 2013 the school and college she so loved was permanently closed on the 14th December 2013.

Debbie was greatly loved and will be very greatly missed not only for her abilities as a wonderful teacher but also for her kindness and generosity, her sense of fun, love of life and her wonderful laughter.

My heartfelt thanks to you all for your support over the years.

With kindest regards

Ted Pafitis
