ABOUT David (Login to Contact David )

I like the East Coast Swing style that I've learned with Gottaswing, but I can't help improvising and going where the music wants to take me when I'm out dancing. I'm looking for a any follower who can help me improve my skills with the goal of working out performance routines and aerials. I'm in Gary & Sue's Intermediate class on Mondays and Thursdays and in Aerials 201 with Glenn and Janice (Dec 2013). Thanks for stopping by!


I won a bottle of champagne in a Bump contest at a club in Misquamicut Beach Rhode Island in 1976. I sometimes dance down the stairs at work, but only when I'm carrying scissors!
