Biography

MacManus began dancing in his hometown of Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland, before moving on to compete around Europe, eventually winning numerous Juvenile, Junior and Amateur competitions. Tristan was educated in two Gaelscoileanna in Bray, starting in Scoil Chualann primary school and completing his secondary education in St Kilians. After appearing in an uncredited dance role in the 2004 movie Ella Enchanted, he performed in theatre productions throughout Ireland, most notably in the Cork City Opera House and The Gaiety Theatre, including Bryan Flynn's production of Oliver! and Aladdin. Next, he joined the UK tour of Simply Ballroom and, after a successful tour in London and Las Vegas, went on to Australia and America where he toured as a featured dancer with Burn the Floor and Floorplay.

After numerous world tours and a year teaching Ballroom and Latin dancing in Boston, he returned to Europe to join the cast of Dirty Dancing as Dance Captain. He then did a second stint in London's West End.

In 2017, he went on tour with Mrs. Brown's Boys for the Good Mourning Mrs. Brown Live 2017 playing Elder Peach.
