David Dassa is the son of famed Israeli dance choreographer Dani Dassa (called "The Father of Israeli Folk Dancing in the United States"). David, from his earliest childhood, danced at Cafe Danssa in West Los Angeles, California -- a folk dance coffee house created by Dani.

David is an excellent teacher of Israeli folk dance in his own right and is the director of camp "RIKUD," which Dani founded, and which is held at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute on Memorial Day Weekend.

David and his wife, Beth, make their home in the Los Angeles, California, area.

Dances David has taught include Ata Af Pa'am, Bo Ve Nirkod, Chag Li, Chofshi U Meushar-dani, Cholemet, Ha-Paam, Harei At Mechudeshet Li, Lismoach Verlikod, Mechvav L'Dani, Rikud Obsession, Suerte, Tapuchim Utamarim, and Zemer Nugeh.
