Peter started his dancing ‘career’ in high school with Scottish country dancing, known to the world as ceilidh. It wasn’t until he moved to Cambridge in 2012 that he was dragged to his first bachata class. This led to his first attempt at salsa when he confused the music with bachata and was given the simple instruction by his dance partner of “just spin me as fast as you can”. After several more months of embarrassing dancing Peter slowly became enticed into the Cambridge dance scene. Since then, he has become an enthusiastic salsa and bachata dancer, occasionally ignoring his PhD in favour of attending an interesting bachata congress or seminar.
He was miraculously accepted onto the Bachata Obsesión Dance Team in 2014, where he hopes they can actually teach him how to dance.
