Eddie Shellman III

Eddie Shellman III was born in New York City. At the age of 7 he moved to New Jersey where he spent the remainder of his childhood playing competitive sports, practicing martial arts, capoiera, acting in several commercials, and dancing. He began performing at age 10 with a role in the Nutcracker. Both of Eddie's parents are professionally trained ballet dancers from The Dance Theatre of Harlem. They instilled in him at a young age the desire to dance and perform. Like his parents, Eddie also trained at the Dance Theatre of Harlem, but found that his true passion was for breakdancing while attending the Univeristy of Hawaii. He continues to learn new styles of dance. He currently resides in New York City.
