    Investigators say he met the child at Taylor Dance Center, where he taught strength and conditioning classes.

    "The only thing I remember him doing is he did a conditioning class with some of his ... massage therapists and such, and they were just teaching the girls how to stretch," said Angie Kennedy, whose daughter takes classes at the studio.

    Police said a second child came forward after Russell's arrest in October.

    "It's highly probable that there are other victims out there," Deputy Chief Scott Brewer said. "And again, if anybody has that information, they need to reach out to our agency as soon as possible."

    "All I can tell you is the allegations are completely false and baseless," said Russell, who is free on a $200,000 bond.

    He said his attorney advised him not to comment beyond that.

    "We will cooperate, and we'll make sure that our children are safe and that they are in no danger whatsoever from sexual predators," said Oscar Gonzalez, an attorney for Taylor Dance Center.

    Dr. David RussellDebbie White, whose daughter takes ballet classes at the studio, said the allegations disturb her.

    Some of the parents at Taylor Dance Center said they stand by him.

    "There's so many people around," Kennedy said. "There's chairs, you can see in and, actually, I owe it to him for my daughter being able to continue to dance."

    According to his website, Russell has been a chiropractor in Collin County since 1995.
