Eboni Nichols



Before she began calling the shots and creating original work featured in campaigns for Apple, Bud Light, Covergirl, McDonald's, Svedka Vodka, Walgreens, and Washington Mutual. Eboni honed her skills first as a member of the world renowned Los Angeles Laker Girls and later touring and appearing in music videos with the likes of Beyonce, Aaliyah, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Andre' 3000 and Snoop Dogg. Eboni also appeared in several hit films including Dreamgirls, Hairspray, Honey and Miami Vice, each time as a principal dancer.  As a choreographer, Eboni has come full circle in her career, now having the opportunity to collaborate with artists she once danced for and admired, including Rihanna, Britney Spears and Usher.

Eboni’s elevation from backup dancer to sought-after choreographer has included some of today's hottest acts including Demi Lovato, Faith Hill and Queen Latifah. Eboni's work has appeared on various television shows, including both seasons of the award-winning comedy/drama Jane the Virgin where she serves as the resident choreographer. Other television shows include the hilarious Fresh Off the Boat, in addition to several episodes of Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, The Queen Latifah Show, Undateable and Cougar Town.

Eboni's work can be seen live on stage, including Rihanna's 2016 Brit Awards performance for her #1 single, Work, featuring Drake in London, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles being performed by the 2015-2016 Clipper Girls during breaks in the NBA action, or on any number of live shows including the American Music Awards, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Good Morning America, The Today Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live. On the silver screen, Eboni has created comedic pieces for both Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler, in addition to assisting with the show-stopping choreography for the hit musical Dreamgirls. Most recently, her choreography can be seen in Office Christmas Party set to release in December 2016, and Malcolm D. Lee’s Girl Trip, which will be released in 2017.

While pursuing her B.F.A in Theatre and Dance from Chapman University in Orange County, Eboni had no idea just how far her passion for dance and talent for choreography would take her. From the Staples Center to South Africa, to sold-out tours on stages around the world, there is much left to be seen. Like the choreographer herself, Eboni’s work is distinct, diverse and in high demand. Whatever the job calls for, there is no question Eboni will deliver.
