His yo-yo has a heartbeat. See a performance by Dazzling Dave and you might start believing his yo-yos are
alive. Dazzling Dave Schulte is a professional yo-yo performer and highly acclaimed
champion who has circled the globe since 1998, storming audiences everywhere
with his freakish tornado of whirling tricks and tips, all designed to entertain,
educate, and illuminate the beauty of the growing sport of professional yo-yo.
A former middle school teacher, Dave’s heart and soul are still in teaching – but
now he’s found a better way. Delivering intensely fun freestyle performances
followed by friendly hands-on instruction, Dave teaches his “students” hand-eye
coordination, goal setting & achievement, performance techniques,
and the fundamentals of physics, all through the Science of Spin program and
his hand-held classroom on a string.
Equally impressed by both the energy of his performance style and his mastery
of the most advanced yo-yo tricks, judges have peppered Dave with
awards throughout his professional career. His awards include: • 1996 Masters World Champion
• 1997 Twin Cities Champion
• 1998 Midwest Regional Champion
• 1999 Fixed Axle World Champion
• 2000 Minnesota Champion. In October of 2001, Dazzling Dave was named to an elite group of National
Yo-Yo Masters, making him one of the exclusive members of the Yo-Yo Judges at
the World and National Yo-Yo Championships each year.
Dazzling Dave has toured Japan, Korea, Australia, and France, as well as most
of the United States.
Currently Dave lives in Minnesota and
gives hundreds of shows each year. He lives with his wife, Kim, their
two wonderful children, Eric and Kate, and his incredible collection
of over 1,500 yo-yos from around the world. It’s amazing how his life has changed since that first
day in 1993 when he was just a college junior looking for a diversion from the
pressure of final exams. “Hey,” he said to his buddy. “Mind
if I try your yo-yo?”
