To date the Doherty Academy is the most successful Irish Dancing school in the world with 109 World titles.
At the age of 16 Don auditioned for the hit show Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance. Within a year of being in the show he was promoted to the role of Lord. In 2000 he toured with the show "Feet of Flames", in which he was understudy for Michael Flatley. In 2001 he was once again promoted to the position of Dance Captain in the troupe which was based at the time in Las Vegas. He currently holds both positions still in the show and is currently one of the longest serving members of the show, having been in the show for 10 years.
In 2006 Don successfully became a TCRG with An Comission Le Rince Gaelacha (The official Irish Dancing Commission). He enjoys
teaching and passing on what he has learned so that other people may enjoy the experiences he has enjoyed through Irish Dance.
