EMMA PEGLER

Associate, UK Correspondent, Moderator

Emma trained as a ballet dancer for many years before going to university to study history. After qualifying as a corporate lawyer, she began to experiment with other forms of dance - jazz, ballroom, salsa and contemporary.

Then one day she lost her heart to Argentine tango and spent a couple of years perfecting her technique with regular trips to Buenos Aires to train with the maestros. She now performs tango and runs her own tango/salsa salon in London, bringing prominent teachers and performers to London to teach.

Emma is currently a lawyer with Merrill Lynch in London but tries to keep up with all dance forms, at all levels, whilst promoting dance amongst the non-dancing community, believing that if people develop their creative potential they are much more fulfilled and balanced. She is also a Trustee and director of JazzXchange, a company formed by Sheron Wray, former dancer with Ballet Rambert, which combines Jazz, contemporary and Latin dances with live music composed by prominent Jazz musicians.

Emma can be contacted at emma@criticaldance.com. Feel free to send her your details on dancing clubs and events (swing, jazz, tango, salsa…..) for dissemination.
