The Beauty of Dance, Part Three: Peggy Petteway, Lustig Dance Theatre, New Brunswick, NJ

Peggy Petteway, a dancer from Florida, has danced principal roles in many different ballet companies, mostly in the South. Since 1999, though, she has been mostly associated with dance in New Jersey.

From 1999 to 2010, Peggy Petteway danced for American Repertory Ballet in Princeton under artistic director Graham Lustig. There she appeared in numerous works such as The Eyes That Gently Touch, Opposites Distract, and Twyla Tharp’s Sinatra Suite, among others. She is now part of Lustig's namesake company in New Brunswick.

More recently, she danced in Luna Mexicana, a Lustig ballet inspired by the Mexican holiday honoring the dead.
