Growing up at a dance studio, David developed his love for dance when he was a little child, but he did not take it seriously until he was 16 years old. He fell in love with ballet and has since made it his passion. David’s primary teacher is his mom, Svetlana Waisman, and he is grateful for all her hard work and dedication to the craft. He is also thankful for Askar Alimbetov and Jose Gonzalez, who inspired him to take ballet, as well as all the wonderful teachers from Pittsburgh Ballet Theater School. David hopes to inspire and build a passion for young dancers everywhere!
