At the age of 11 Dave received his first taste of street dance when he watched the popular dance movie
“You Got Served”.
However, he didn’t have an outlet until 2007 when he began dancing at Davenport Dance Project.
After a few years, Dave continued to follow his passion at Blackout Dance Productions, where he trained with Matt Cangiano. Eventually, dancing at a studio was not enough, Dave’s hunger for knowledge lead him to Ambitious Movement in 2011, a Hip-hop based dance and Entertainment Company lead by choreographer Ambitious Anthony Smith.
Since then Dave has made televised appearances on “So You Think You Can Dance” Pre show,
Family Channel’s “The Next Step,” Toronto’s Public Health commercial, Chapman's Ice Cream commercial, "Reign" from the CW Network and a few music videos.
He’s also showcased his talent on stages such as World of Dance (Toronto), We Day, Toronto’s Choreographers Ball, and the Bazaar Dance Showcase just to name a few.
Dave was also a member of ONE Movement's Professional Dance Company for two season, helping to create change in our Community schools using his Hip Hop skills to help teach students about Bullying and Building Self Esteem.
He is a judge for one of the biggest, world level hip-hop dance competitions to date run by “Hip-Hop International Canada,” called the
“Canadian Hip-Hop Dance Championship.” Dave is trained in different styles of Hip-hop but has trained intensively in waving, popping, tutting, breaking and house. He specializes in hip-hop choreography, Hip-hop technique and tumbling.
Dave loves to teach his kids all styles and slow things down with a nice R&B tune from time to time to teach control, passion and emotion.
Dave says, “I dance because I was inspired and I dance to inspire. Let's keep the Hip-hop culture alive.”
