Peggie Sheridan was a dancer. She was also, at various times, a weaver, a shoemaker, a horsewoman, an ice-carter, and a dress designer. But, above all she was a dancer - a performer. Born into the Edwardian theatre, she danced her way through India and the British Empire in the Twenties and Thirties. Tiny but tough, she survived some of the great upheavals of the century; she saw the Empire in its prime, and she was there in its last declining years. Married three times, she knew triumph and tragedy; and she died alone and unknown. This is her remarkable story.
