Born into a family of award-winning dancers, David shared his family’s love of dance early on. At age 11, he began competing in national ballroom dance competitions, and by 13 he began assisting in teaching Latin dance classes for other children. It was here that he discovered his passion for teaching dance.
With this dual passion for teaching and dancing, he quickly became a professional instructor and a pro competitor—a decision requiring hours of training with national and world champions. David and his professional dance partner were finalists in national competition in the American Smooth division and championship Rising Star events.
With nearly two decades of experience and skill in teaching, partnering and competing, David has helped his ballroom dance students win national championships and scholarship awards. Many have been recognized by the National Dance Council of America and the prestigious Dancers Cup Tour. In addition to his students’s success, David has earned numerous local, regional and national “Top Teacher” awards.
Along with competing, David performs and partners with local pro and amateur dancers in expositions and charity events such as Dancing with the St. Louis Stars, Dancing in the Loop, Forget-Me-Not Ball, and performances with the Glen Miller Orchestra.
