Eric Underwood

Dancing into CATS this Christmas



American dancer Eric Underwood is the toast of both the dance and fashion worlds. Until recently, he was a soloist with the Royal Ballet — but David Bailey has also photographed him in the nude, and he's been shot alongside Kate Moss for Italian Vogue.
After escaping the projects in Washington DC, Eric scaled the heights of his profession by way of New York, Paris and Milan. He's also even shared the stage with Beyoncé. Currently seen on the big screen alongside Taylor Swift in CATS the movie.
