Lynn started dancing firstly through the medal test system progressing to competitions at the tender age of 11.
With her partner Peter Maxwell she became Triple Open British Junior Ballroom and Latin American Champion winning her first title at the age of 13 (a record that has never been equalled), continuing on to become Youth Ballroom and Latin American Champion by the age of 16 and at 22 won both the British Amateur Ballroom/ Latin Championships and the World Latin American Championship.
Having won all other major titles in both disciplines in 1974 Lynn turned Professional.
Her professional achievements included representing Great Britain in the British Open Professional Team Match, being winner of the World Cup 10 Dance, a finalist in the British Open Professional Ballroom Championship and winner of the World and British Open Latin American Championships.
Following her very early retirement in 1979 Lynn has judged all major events including World and European Championships and now concentrates on teaching others to follow in her footsteps. Having been the founder with her co-owners of the now world famous Dance Options Cheam, one of her proudest moments was the opening of the studio in 1993.
