Edgar Zendejas

Edgar Zendejas
(Artistic Director and Founder) hails from Mexico City where he began his training at the Estudio Profesional de Danza de Ema Pulido.

His passion for dance soon led him to the United States where he received a fellowship from the United States International University, and shortly thereafter became a member of the International Ballet Company of USIU.

Prior to joining Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal in 1993, Edgar lived in Chicago where he was a dancer in both The Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and the Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago.

Edgar has worked with several choreographers who have inspired him to further his career, not only as a dancer, but as a creator as well. Among these inspirations are David Parsons, Twyla Tharp, Ulysses Dove, Mia Michaels and Jennifer Muller.

Edgar has been choreographing, filling commissions, and presenting his work for the past 8 years. Following several successes with his choreography, namely The Profesional Competition ENCORE in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec where he won both the public prize and the jury prize for his work, Edgar founded
ezDanza with Neelanthi Vadivel and Julien Gagnon to promote Edgar's singular work.
