Born in Mexico City, Fernandez began his training at the Centro de Arte y Ballet. In 1989 he was awarded a scholarship to study at Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago, later joining the company and winning the Jeffrey Mildenstein Award. While studying at the Joseph Holmes Chicago Dance Theatre he began choreographing, and his work has been featured in festivals and competitions nationwide, including the Youth America Grand Prix, the Jackson Competition, and the New York International Choreographers Festival.

  • If I am not busy, I wanna see how the show of David Fernandez and how it will turn out for I know he is really a great choreographer and besides that I wanna also help donate some amount for the Career Transition for Dancers. I am really looking forward to see David’s show on the 27th of February. As a choreographer and a creative director, like him, I also had created a lot of great shows and also helped a lot of people. It is really good to see and hear that there are still a lot of good people who is willing to help others. :)
