Dance

Born in France, Geoffrey Van Dyck began dancing at the age of ten in the Northeast of France. He started with jazz and hip-hop during high school years. Dreaming of musicals, he joined the Académie Internationale de la Danse in Paris at the age of 18 and studied jazz, classical, contemporary, hip-hop, singing and theatre. He worked for commercials, events and musicals and was hired as a dancer for Hermès, Areva, Smart by Paris Fashion Week. Afterward, he succeeded in auditioning for musical theaters including Grease and Mozart l’Opera Rock. At age twenty, in search for new experience and deepening his knowledge in dance, he decided to change his path and joined the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Lyon in the contemporary department. Developing his interest in choreography, this lead him to create many pieces that were performed in Lyon. A year before graduating, he joined Ballet du Grand Theatre de Genève where he stayed for 7 years and was immediately positioned as a soloist in the company performing in roles such as Tristan in Tristan Isolde, Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet and performed many works by renowned choreographers such as Jiri Kilian, Andonis Foniadakis, Benjamin Millipied, Ken Ossola, Joelle Bouvier, Claude Brumachon, Pontus Lidberg and Jeroen Verbruggen. In 2018 he created a work for the company in an evening called ‘Premier Pas’ for emerging choreographers in the company where he was able to enrich his passion as a choreographer. The following year, he was invited to participate in a cultural exchange program in Thailand, developing the contemporary dance scene and giving workshops, where the end performance was a success. In 2020, he created a short piece in the Danish National School and in 2021 was invited to do the same for the Swedish National School. During the past years of Covid-19, having many promising projects cancelled and after much reflection, he rejoined the Grand Théâtre de Geneve who will be welcoming a new artistic directeur for 2022/23: Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. In the meantime he created his association called "Le Chant du Corps" and is choreographing with the same passion.
