Recently becoming a British Columbian resident, Dave has been facilitating positive social change within dance communities for the last 20 years. Prior to March 2020, Dave traveled regularly, played jazz music, and taught swing dancing. Having owned dance studios and operated communities, he is aware of what most organizations in Canada need in order to thrive and become sustainable. Dave was nominated by Arts Award Waterloo in 2016 for artistic excellence, sustained development and impact on the Waterloo Region community, and for the creation of a local sustainable swing dance business, the Hep Cat Hoppers. Furthermore, you would find his jazz band performing at various festivals, where swing dancers can be found on the dance floor. Given the state of the recent health crisis, he grounded himself in Abbotsford. His current project includes working with Canadian swing organizations to meet their goals and objectives. This includes training instructors, performers and assembling jazz musicians to play live music. In addition, he writes project charters, policies, and procedures in order to achieve effectiveness and efficiency in day-to-day operations. This is with hopes a strategic plan can be written up, and put into action by engaged members and participants in the community.
