#CFADWorks: Eric Chambray

In the dressing room for “Le Rêve,” dance alumnus Eric Chambray shares his journey from the UCO College of Fine Arts and Design to the Las Vegas stage.

After studying dance at the University of Central Oklahoma, Chambray began his career with Royal Caribbean Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Lines and Tokyo Disney. For the past 10 years, Chambray has stunned audiences with feats of strength, acrobatics, aerial dance, diving, martial arts and more as a part of “Le Rêve,” performing in an aqua theatre-in-the-round at the Wynn Las Vegas.

Those outside of Las Vegas may have also seen Chambray and the “Le Rêve” dancers on America’s Got Talent and in the film Paul Blart Mall Cop: 2.

Watch a few of these captivating performances below:

As students today are dissuaded from pursuing their passions in arts-related fields, we’re flipping the script on “starving artists” and highlighting the breadth of success our alumni have achieved as musicians, artistic directors, talent managers, dancers, actors and so much more. As our alumni can attest, #CFADWorks!
