Growing up in the tough neighborhoods of Brooklyn, NY, Puerto Rican Eddie Morales never knew he would one day be paid to travel internationally alongside some of the world’s most iconic music superstars. His humble beginnings nurtured his fighter mentality to be the best, amongst the best.
The journey to dance with the best was not an easy one for this now internationally sought after dancer and choreographer. During his high school years, Eddie would sneak out to underground clubs after school, dance all night until the early dawn, and then sneak back home to get ready for school.
In 1995, while living in Brooklyn, Eddie was involved in a hit-and-run bus accident which left him fighting to walk. During his recuperation, he became inspired to dance professionally when he saw Janet Jackson’s IF music video. He began his incredible recovery with his own regiment of dancing for rehabilitation.
Once he was back on his feet again, Eddie caught the eye of Mary J. Blige who personally invited him to join her Share My World tour. Since then, he has toured the world with international superstars including Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Usher, Whitney Houston, Chris Brown, Boys II Men, Sean "Diddy" Combs, P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Aaliyah, Big Pun, supe- producer Timbaland, Jay- Z, Notorious B.I.G , Will Smith, J-LO, Missy Elliot, and PHARRELL.
Eddie has also been featured in many memorable music videos such as Justin Timberlake’s Like I Love You and changed the face of dance alongside Marty Kudelka, his best friend. In addition to touring and being on-screen, and starring and choreographing in the feature film Stomp The Yard, Eddie has remained a fixture of international award shows since 1999, dancing and choreographing at such renowned premiere events including the Grammy Awards, MTV’s Video Music Awards, the American Music Awards, the World Music Awards, Asia Music Awards, the European Music Awards, NRJ Awards, and UK MOBO Awards, to name a few.
A true international cultural ambassador, Eddie has remained actively involved with German-based company, Who Got Skillz since 2001, assisting in delivering the best dancers and choreographers from the U.S.A to the most remote regions of several countries. Read less
