About Chad Martin

CHAD Owner, Instructor, Office Manager Chad Martin was never a dancer. He played football. However, he met a girl who changed his world and she was a dancer, so naturally he got roped in to helping backstage. Fast forward 10 years and he and that girl (Miss Amber) are now married and are proud to be the owners of The Dance Avenue. Chad attended Norwalk High School and went on to attend Central College in Pella with a football scholarship. Majoring in marketing and communications turned out to be a great fit with something that Chad always wanted to do, which was to run a business. After many years of helping behind the scenes building and transporting props, and helping with recital, Chad has now moved on to helping instruct our tumbling classes. After attending tumbling and spotting classes on a recent trip to New York to the Dance Teacher Summit, Chad came back equipped with the knowlege to help train tumblers coupled with his passion for sports and teams. Chad has also earned his coaching authorization through the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners. Besides being the office manager at TDA, Chad also works for the City of Norwalk and coaches football for Norwalk High School. Chad loves everything Iowa Hawkeyes, hunting, fishing, lifting weights and of course spending time with Amber and Preston. Chad says he is very excited to have begun his journey into teaching and he really enjoys working one-on-one with students helping them achieve their goals.
