Dingle native, David Geaney, a 5 X World Champion Dancer, is taking the world by storm. After an illustrious competitive career, amassing numerous major titles including All Ireland, European, All Scotland and Great Britain Championships alongside his five world titles, he has now set his sights on choreographing and performing around the world which has seen him perform already in Belgium, Prague, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Canada and the United States.
In 2011, David’s dancing started moving away from the strict competitive style to a performance style when he took part in and won TG4’s An Jig Gig. In the same year he was a top 10 finalist in the Ernst and Young, Young Entrepreneur Programme, with performance dancing being his business idea. In 2012, he went on to win Kerry’s Got Talent, pitting his talents against dancers, singers and musicians alike with a prize fund of €5,000.
David performs regularly in his family’s bar, The Dingle Pub, in Dingle, County Kerry dancing with live musicians and entertaining tourists from all around the globe since he was 14! It is here that he established his strong connection with live music, free styling his steps to match the beat of the music…. which isn’t easy! David regularly works in the family pub, surprising tourists by taking the floor after answering their “when is the dancer” queries & serving them their delicious dinner just moments before!
