Originally from upstate New York, David Arnold has been teaching dance for nearly 29 years. He entered the world of dance after hearing a radio ad for the Hustle. Soon after that, he was asked to enroll in a teacher training program. Thinking it sounded like fun to teach dance professionally, David accepted. He transitioned from being a new student to being the dance director of a dance studio to opening his own, all in less than four years. He owned his studio for seven years along with a small staff of teachers he trained.
David decided to relocate to the West Coast in 1990 after a vacation here. He has been teaching, coaching, and competing in the Bay Area for over 18 years now. Although he teaches just about everything, his specialties are American Smooth and International Standard. You know you are training with David because you are laughing and working, totally focused and inspired to push through toward your own excellence. David says, “I am fully present and engaged with each student I work with. It's a great feeling being a teacher, having the ability to bring out each student's potential that often exceeds their original personal expectations.”
David frequently travels out-of-state to coach students and teachers. He prepares students for dance competitions and creates choreography for showcases.
David is certified in:
