David Diaz was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and is one of Nieves Latin Dance Studio’s very first students. Before becoming a dance teacher, David experienced all the stages of the average student’s trajectory, from curiosity to mastering all the levels and even joining the performance team. Recently, he won third place in the Miami International Salsa Congress, along with the performance team, Sabor de Nieves. “Dance is a builder of character that emboldens you as you pursue excellence,” David says.
He started teaching Salsa on 2 in 2013 in order to impart the knowledge and the skills he had gained. David’s favorite part of teaching dance is building community in a fun and safe environment.
He is currently studying at the Swedish Institute to become an Athletic Coach.
