He attended the Boston Conservatory and earned a bachelor’s degree in dance in 2011. After graduating, he joined ballet company Teatrul de Balet Sibiu in Romania, where he spent three seasons rising to first soloist and choreographer. During this time, he toured and performed various classical and contemporary works, and toured throughout Europe performing in theaters in Germany, Austria, Hungary and Sicily. Shortly after returning home, Beaver joined Dayton Ballet in Ohio where he spent two seasons as a featured soloist.

Before the pandemic hit, Beaver was touring nationally with the Broadway musical “An American in Paris.” He currently resides in Lewes and is involved in the fitness industry.
