A native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada Tony has had a serious passion for the arts since the age of 5. He started his first tap class in 1993, and in the following year has taken ballet and jazz to further his passion.
Tony has trained with some greats such as: Al Gilbert ( founder of Stepping Tones International ), Brian Foley ( founder and creator of ADAPT Syllabus ) and Antoinette Sibley ( founder of RAD ).
Tony studied throughout the next 10 years modern, lyrical, funk, hip-hop and African dance. He was invloved in many broadway/musical productions from Annie, Fiddler on the Roof, and Oliver where he was lead choreographer.
Tony was also featured as a backup dancer for Nicki Foxx in her latest
music video: “Wild and Stupid” and had the opportunity to train and attend
workshops with an a-list of faculty such as Tucker Barkley, Brian Friedman,
Mia Michaels, and Tyce Diorio to name a few.
He plans to gain some more choreography ad teaching experience having only done it for 5 years. He is currently teaching jazz, tap and ballet to the beginner level. Tony also completed TTS developed by Brian Foley and the STARS Teaching course at Dance with France studios in his community. Out of all the styles, tap is his speciality having studied it throughout the most of his life.
Tony has been a member of Artists Elite International and has performed alongside many artists from around the world and had the opportunity to choreograph as well for the bi-annual shows they have put on.
Tony has had some modeling training and credits include: MAC Cosmetics, and the Bay. He hopes to complete his dance training and will hopefully open up his own studio one day.
