Wexford born David O’Connor commenced his dance training here in Cork, with Alan Foley at Coláiste Stiofán Naofa. There, he completed his two years of training and was later awarded a scholarship with Cambridge Performing Arts at Bodywork Company Dance Studios. Since graduating in 2005, David has worked extensively throughout Ireland, the UK and abroad. His catalogue of work ranges from choreographing and performing in both musicals and pantomimes, to working on cruise ships and appearing on T.V.
David is no stranger to the stages of Cork as he has appeared in various productions such as Cinderella (2000 & 2008), Jack And The Beanstalk (2009), The Ha’penny Bridge (2001) and The Merry Widow (2002) at Cork Opera House and Everyman Palace.
His career as a choreographer ultimately began in 2010 with the debut of the critically acclaimed West Side Story at Cork Opera House. Since then David has choreographed various large-scale productions such as Snow White (2011), Cinderella (2012) and last season’s Alice In Wonderland (2013).
