Site of Betty Stockman's School of Dance
Having grown up at 815 Woodrow Street, Betty Stockman worked at Roy McCullough's School of Dance from 1950 through 1960 before assuming its ownership. Renamed, the studio remained a venue for generations of aspiring dancers who studied under Stockman for over three decades. Expansion of Shandon Baptist Church in the early 1980s led to the demolition of Stockman's house and the neighboring Woodrow Street property behind which stood the studio. Despite the loss of these structures, memories of Stockman's time in Old Shandon remain vivid.
