The Performing Arts Studio of Scotland (P.A.S.S.), BA (Hons) Dance
Eddie was the first Scottish solo dancer to qualify to become a superstar division competitor on the UCWDC dance circuit, which meant he had to win the open advanced and open showcase dance divisions at the same World championships which he did in Nashville, Tennessee, when he turned Professional at 18.
He then went on teach competitors and social dancers alike all over Europe for various dance events/conventions and competitions.
At the age of 19 he decided to study professional stage dance, so he began his full time training on a higher national diploma course (HND) at The Performing Arts Studio of Scotland (PASS), moving from Glasgow to Edinburgh where he studied ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, acting and singing, graduating with a BA (Honours) in Dance.
Eddie has been lucky enough to be working consistently since the day he left PASS and has now travelled the world and performed on some of the biggest stages and with some of the most well-known in the industry.
His previous credits include: multiple contracts for cruise ship company Royal Caribbean International, Allure of the Seas (featured dancer); top 12 finalist in BBC1’s ‘ Strictly Dance Fever’, Season One; dancer for Matthew Cutler, Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace (of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’); creatively assisting Louis Van Amstel (‘Dancing With The Stars USA’) for his two shows “Invitation to Dance” and “Ballroom Fever”, which Eddie also performed In for over two years. Eddie’s most recent theatrical achievement is performing in the Tony-award winning show “CHICAGO THE MUSICAL” under the direction of Duncan Stuart and Sherry Zunker ( Bob Fosse’s original principal dancer).
Eddie now teaches and choreographs Ballroom and Latin American for Greg Gillespie (ISTD Fellow, IDTA, SDTA) at the London Academy of Dance
“I would like to say a really big thank you to Eddie and Honor who were brilliant on the night – it was such a nice treat for people to see a live performance as opposed to the telly! It all went to plan, I had a lot of very positive comments from staff” – (client feedback from dance showcase, Dorchester Hotel London, Dancers for Events).
