At the age of __ 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), Wii Day, Toronto’s Choreographers Ball, and the Bazaar Dance Showcase just to name a few.
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.”
