Michael Dancer was a native Californian born in 1927, and raised on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula, where his father worked as an engineer for the Southern Pacific Railroad. Michael attributed his love of nature to the many travels he had as a child with his father.

After completing college, Dancer left northern California and became involved in the television industry. While writing for and appearing on TV, he also began to venture into the real estate business. During this time, he began extensive art collecting where his appreciation and love of fine art and his natural interest in landscapes emerged.

Dancer attended several Keith Ward workshops in Las Vegas and Palm Springs that kindled his interest in painting and inspired him to pursue a profession as a fine artist.

He had early affiliations with several prominent galleries including Montecito Fine Arts, Linda McAdoo Gallery in Santa Fe, Nelson Rockefeller Gallery in Palm Springs, and the Bluebird Gallery in Laguna Beach. He has won numerous awards including 3rd prize in the Taos Impressionist Show, and the Don Owens award in the San Gabriel Art Association Show.

After a brief hiatus from painting and teaching his workshops, Dancer joined the California Art Club and won the Gold Medal for Landscape at the 1995 California Art Club Gold Medal Exhibition. He died in 2002.
