David Albert-Toth was an avid Hip Hop dancer, choreographer and teacher before earning a BFA with a major in contemporary dance from Concordia University in Montreal. He has since been invited to teach his urban contemporary dance approach at the Cirque du Soleil and in Paris, France. A disposition towards eclectic artistic encounters have led David to perform throughout Canada, the US, and Europe, collaborating with Lemieux-Pilon 4D-Art and Peter Trosztmer, Dominique Porte, Victor Quijada, Milan Gervais, Emily Gualtieri, Emmanuelle Calvé, Alejandro de Leon / Lost & Found, Floor Rider & Tonik Danse, David Pressault, Patrick Lloyd Brennan, Isabel Mohn, and as a member of Compagnie Destins Croisés under the artistic direction of Ismaël Mouaraki.
In 2009, David presented High-Definition Memory in RubberbanDance Group's Post Hip Hop Project at Place des Arts in Montreal. In 2010 he began a co-choreographic collaborative relationship with Emily Gualtieri. Their first work, The Calculated Risk Project (2010), was presented at CAM and at the Bouge d'ici Festival (2011) in Montreal and was most recently programmed at the Movement Research Series at the Judson Church in New York this past summer. David was invited to perform their following solo work, La Chute, on a Quebec tour of a dozen cities with Andrew Turner in 2010/11. David and Emily will begin a new creation in 2012.
David is also a DJ when he's not making moves and has loved mixing tunes since before he got into the whole dancing thing. He mixes under the name David Lafontaine and is currently working with impro-movement league Les Imprudanses. Choosing to treat the art of the mix as "Aural Montage Art", he has refined his approach over the years and has created a number of soundtracks for contemporary dance performances, notably for Smutny sisters Anna and Zoja, at Toronto's FAT and Montreal's Festival Transatlantique respectively.
