Pipe Major Peter Quinn

Just to acknowledge that Pipe Major Peter Quinn was a leading Highland Dance teacher in London and Bobby was one of his students.

Peter, both as a dancer and teacher, would have seen that a Highland Dance shoe that improved the outline of a dancer's foot would be an advantage to the dancer. A shoe without a front seam or tab was a new concept at that time - and Bobby went on to market this shoe as "Munro Competition Shoes" - a shoe designed by a dancer for a dancer. I have no idea how much of the design was Bobby's and how much Peter's. Suffice to say, it was Bobby who went on to have the shoes made and to market them.

Two wonderful dancers!
