David Liu, the last man to skate a compulsory figure in competition (Halifax World Championship; 1990) reports that he is currently “happily based in NYC - working and creating.”

David retired from eligible skating following the 1998 World Championship “and an Asian Skating Union international Championships in my native country, Taiwan. I realized I wasn't enjoying competition anymore - having to throw myself into triple axels and quads was no longer my definition of fun. It was time to move on and I should really have done it even sooner.”

Since then, he reports, “I've done some unusual projects that do not really fall into the realm of "professional skater" per se. They also have been my favorite projects - one in particular was my collaboration with a modern dance company from Hong Kong called City Contemporary Dance Company. I skated while they danced on and off the ice on a spectacular stage theatre in Hong Kong.”

In addition, David works as a choreographer and soloist with The Ice Theatre of New York.

“I have been performing with and choreographing for ITNY for many years now. One of the highlights was when we performed in the theatre at Westpoint and Carlos Orta, who is the artistic director of a modern dance company I was performing with called CoreoArte, came to watch. I was performing a piece that we had collaborated on called "El Duende" - Carlos was a mentor and passed away shortly after that time. I was thrilled that he really liked my performance.

“(Off-ice), I have been dancing and choreographing for dance - also doing some acting. I've choreographed for various dance companies such as City Contemporary Dance Company, Hong Kong Ballet, and Singapore Dance Theatre. This past year I have also co-created and co-produced a show in China called "Spherical" - we plan to do more in the near future!”
