Born in South Africa, Keo started dancing at the age of five after his best friend suggested they try it out for some fun. At seven, he knew that it was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. In 2004, Keo teamed up with his coach and mentor, Rafick Hoosain, and garnered every national title in South Africa.
In 2012, Keo made history becoming the first South African to join the "Burn the Floor" World Tour. He quickly became the male principle dancer in the cast, and was hand-picked to perform as a soloist during the shows residency at the Shaftesbury Theatre on the West End. In 2014, Keo toured with "Burn the Floor" as principal dancer on the Australian and Japan tours, he also performed on their weekly productions on the Norwegian Cruise Line's Breakaway Getaway.
