Eduardo Jimenez Cabrera (He/Him) was born in Irapuato, Mexico, but raised in Costa Rica, where he felt an undeniable attraction to movement practices. This led him to begin his dance training at the age of 15. It would be 5 years later, in 2020, when he decided to move to Philadelphia, PA in pursuit of furthering his dance education. Eduardo is currently a senior pursuing his BFA in Dance at The University of the Arts under the direction of Donna Faye Burchfield, who granted him the Director’s Full Scholarship Award. Eduardo made many new connections during his time in the United States, leading him to be a part of companies such as BigKid Dance, led by Mark Caserta (in Philadelphia) and Bocatuya, directed by Omar Román de Jesús (in New York). Eduardo has also been in process multiple times with Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary arts collective Tribe, under the direction of Shamel Pitts. He has had the chance to be in process and perform works by Annie Rigney, Sidra Bell, Paxton Ricketts, Mark Caserta, Omar Román de Jesús, Jesse Zarrit, Ali Pfleger, Tommie-Waheed Evans, and Tushrik Fredericks. Eduardo is thrilled to join Ballet BC in the 2023/2024 season as an emerging artist.
