Dazzling Dave’s 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
• World Record Holder

What they’re saying…
“Dave had the P.E. activity so well organized and every student received individual instruction. I did not know anything about yo-yos, and in one day, Dave taught me all I needed to know. “
