At 17 years old, David Pearce spent his nights dancing and DJing in a slick Seattle club. When his best friend recognized his skills and suggested David join him as a daytime ballroom-dance instructor, he was unenthusiastic⎯until a visit to his friend's studio made David realize that ballroom dancing involved nothing but sleek movements and squiring ladies across the floor. He’s been hooked ever since. David opened The Studio with his wife, Jackie, who leads belly and hula dancing, and the pair demonstrates swing, Argentine tango, and other American ballroom dances with help from four other instructors.
Private lessons begin with David’s signature teaching style, which condenses every ballroom step into four basic movements and instills the fundamentals of leading and following before finally acquainting students with the dance style of their choice. Meanwhile, group lessons introduce hoofers to new moves in a lively and relaxed social-dancing atmosphere. Monthly parties, which often follow elaborate themes—such as a luau with leis, photo props, and decorations dappling the studio’s baby-blue walls—invite couples to twirl, sip refreshments, and eventually follow fellow revelers to nearby nightclubs or a Disney prince's ballroom to show off their versatile moves in a real-world setting.
