The World has lost a true icon of Ballroom Dancing – R.I.P Peter Eggleton

Peter Eggleton starting dancing at a stage school as a teenager and then decided to take up Ballroom Dancing. He could therefore use his stage training for great effect and developed an elegance that has never been surpassed.
He trained with the greats Josephine Bradley , Phyllis Haylor & Len Colyer and he became
British and World Amateur Ballroom Champion dancing with Diana Gradwell.

With the amazing Brenda Winslade he became a super star of the Professional Ballroom Dancing World and for many became the Ballroom dancer everybody aspired to be; even the people who competed against him admired him greatly.
His remarkable record of success includes
3 x British Open Professional Ballroom Champion
2x World Professional Ballroom Champion
8x International Professional Ballroom Champion
Multiple UK & Star Championship Professional Ballroom Champion

He retired to Tampa Florida and continued to teach into his very old age.

Peter Eggleton was 95 on the 1st March this year and passed away peacefully not long after his wife Pamela.

The President and officers of the WDC feel extremely saddened by the departure of yet another Ballroom Dancing Professional Ballroom Champion legend and offer their sincerest condolences to all family and friends of this most amazing man and dancer.
