When Wolfgang Sawallisch was about to take over the position of conductor with the Philadelphia Orchestra and there was a welcoming party in his honor, Peter was asked to provide an exhibition of the Viennese Waltz. Diversity and inclusiveness are values in which Peter believes strongly.

He is a graduate of Villanova and Temple Universities, and was a professor of German and of History at four local universities for 14 years.

He also teaches novelty dances such as Salsa, Merengue, Polka and Irish Waltz. But of all Peter's qualifications, perhaps most important is his creativity. Peter has choreographed Wedding Dances - First Dances for hundreds of wedding couples, and not one has been the same!
