Peter Eggleton

Thank you to the Boston studios for arranging Mr. Eggleton's visit to the area. 

After leaving the army, the culmination of eleven years as an amateur competition dancer was the achievement of a World Championship title. Upon turning professional in 1959, Peter took an Associate examination with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing, the beginning of many years of service to the Society on the Ballroom Faculty, Executive Council and, ultimately, Grand Council, a position which he still holds. As a professional competitor he enjoyed, with Miss Brenda Winslade, great success winning among many titles, 8 International, 6 United Kingdom, 6 European, 3 British Open and 3 World Professional Championships. A career as a teacher, lecturer and adjudicator followed, and Peter counts himself fortunate on still being in demand for these services all over the world, working with all levels of dance from World Champion to Novice with great success, something he hopes to continue doing for many years to come. Peter's first studies in dance were at the Bush Davies School in Romford, Essex, where his teachers were, none other than Joyce Percy and Daphne Peterson. He was keen to go on the stage at the time, but school studies dictated otherwise. After that, at 18 and a day, the army took over conscription for three years, and the opportunity was gone. Hence, rather than waste the training entirely, he began an interest in Ballroom dancing, which turned out to be fortuitous!
