Without Peggy Spencer MBE, there would be no Strictly Come Dancing. The queen mother of Ballroom and Latin, she taught, choreographed and adjudicated for 70 years, training more than 20 winning formation teams for BBC’s Come Dancing. She also put Penge on the map.
Her archive is now available for all to enjoy at Bishopsgate Institute, and we welcome you to join us in celebrating Peggy’s life and work, at this special event.
There will be an opportunity to view archive materials, as well as meet those who knew and loved Peggy, and have been inspired by her work. As no evening celebrating Peggy Spencer would be complete without dance, there will also be an opportunity to take to the floor for a social dance.
