Born in 1983, Eduardo Guerrero began dancing when he was six years old, developing his skills at Carmen Guerreros School in Cádiz. Later on, he worked with dancers such as Mario Maya, Antonio Canales, Manolo Marín, Eva Yerbabuena, Aida Gómez, Rocío Molina, Javier Latorre, and Rafael Aguilar.
In 2002, Guerrero began to work with major artists who recognized his immense talent enhanced by his physical stamina and flawless technique. He garnered leading roles with Aída Gomez, Eva La Yerbabuena, Rocio Molina, The Spanish Ballet directed by Javier Latorre, and Amador Rojas dance company, amongst others.
In 2011, his choreography Mayo was awarded first prize by the Professional Conservatories. Soon after that, Guerrero embarked on a solo career, creating productions such as Suite Flamenca, De Dolores, Las Minas, and Re-torno as well as the award-winning Guerrero, which won the 2017 Audience Award at the Festival de Jerez.
Recommended dancewear: Shoes with a sturdy heel, and a full skirt for girls and comfortable pants for boys.
