Walt was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. He moved to Bend in 2006. Having a girlfriend (now wife), whose life revolved around dance, was the first step in peaking Walt’s interest.  He felt drawn to learn the art of breakdancing, which led him to taking hip hop, jazz, lyrical/contemporary and ballet classes to improve his knowledge and technique. Walt has taught both hip hop and breakdancing and continues to enjoy taking studio classes.

In addition, he attends many dance conventions and workshops to help extend his dance knowledge. He never tires of trying and learning new styles and techniques.

Walt has been asked to choreograph and perform locally–Central Oregon Hot Shots, Winterfest, Monster Ball and a First Story fundraiser, just to name a few.

Walt is always anxious to share his natural talent and has developed a following. His fun, easygoing nature adds to his talent in teaching. He is thrilled to be part of the Gotta Dance family and feels privileged to share the experience with his wife, Kelly.
