Direct from Cádiz, Spain, Compañía Flamenca Eduardo Guerrero
presents “Flamenco Pasión,” a program specifically crafted for the North

exhibited in the many styles of this beloved, Spanish art form. This group of
elite artists, including Eduardo Guerrero himself, captivates audiences as they

Eduardo Guerrero Gónzalez began dancing when he was just six
years old at Carmen Guerrero’s School in Cádiz, where he forged the base of his
dancing career that he then further developed with professional dancers such as
Mario Maya, Antonio Canales, Manolo Marín, or Chiqui de Jerez, among others. 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. It was in 2002 when he started to work with
major artists on the national scene who valued Eduardo’s physical ability,
flawless technique, and evident quality. Eduardo has toured all over the world at
the side of the greatest names in dance, at the most prestigious theaters and
dance festivals. In 2017, Eduardo Guerrero won the XVI Audience Award at the
Jerez Festival for best single flamenco dancer, a very prestigious award.
