He studied Spanish Dance in Cádiz at the conservatory of music, and afterwards he extended his contemporary and classic dance knowledge with David Greenall and Montserrat Marín respectively. Eduardo travels the world, performing as a solo dancer at the most recognized Festivals and prestigious theaters such as The Star Festival of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, in concerts of Pasión Vega and in India Martínez, and collaborates with Los Stomp in Manchester, in the presence of HRH the Princess of England. In 2017, his show Guerrero wins the Audience Award of the Festival de Jerez, Eduardo's performance supposes a tremendous success at the Teatro Villamarta.
