|At the 2012 Heritage Classic the USISTD recognized Peter Eggleton.|
Peter Eggleton is a ballroom legend.
Not only has he been Amateur and Professional Open British and World Champion multiple times, but he has uniquely shaped the Ballroom world with a beautiful and special style that is truly his own.
Peter has been involved with producing all of the Ballroom World Champions that we have had to date. Evidence of his brilliance and dedication is apparent in that he continues to be a major influence in dancing today, and Ballroom dancers strive to possess even a little of his magic. He is a brilliant teacher who has inspired, encouraged, and educated others to follow in his footsteps.
The ultimate worldwide ambassador for dance, Peter is a true gentleman and graced the floor as a dancer with elegance and style. He is unique in our world; he has done, and continues to do, more than any living person to forward the art of Ballroom Dancing, and his singular achievements have produced a body of work that is envied by the entire dance community.
Peter is a Fellow and Grand Council member of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing and serves on the Board of Trustees of the USISTD. It is in appreciation of his dedication, his achievements, and his passion, that the United States Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing makes this presentation today.
