Born and raised in New York City and of Puerto Rican heritage, David was exposed to Latin music and dance at a very young age. In 2007, David joined the Universal Mambo Dance Academy, and would go on to perform with the company in over a dozen shows throughout the U.S. In 2009, David began training under Felix “Pupy” Insua and Jennifer Donello at the Oriki Omi Oddara Afro-Cuban Dance Theater.
After obtaining his B.S. Degree in Education, he founded DG’s Afro-Latin Dance Project. Since 2013, David has performed and choreographed shows for events such as the National Dance Day, The Creative City Project, The International Fringe Festival, and The iDance festival. He has taught workshops at the University of Central Florida, Florida State University, Embry-Riddle University, and has been a featured instructor for the last several years at National Dance Day.
His youth choreographies have garnered top scores and judges awards at competitions such as "Shake The Ground" and "Headliners". David has recently branched out to theatre and film, choreographing for the theatrical production, “Eden” and the film “The Red Book”.
