Meet Anthony 

Anthony was born in the Dominican Republic, and moved to New York City at the age of three. He started dancing when he was fifteen at Ballet Hispanico, and studied ballet, flamenco, jazz, Latin jazz, and modern. Anthony danced flamenco professionally with Flamenco Revolution, during which time he performed at Jacob's Pillow in Massachusetts and various theaters in New York City. In 2010, Anthony received a full scholarship for Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet (GKA). Anthony graduated from the Academy and joined The Gelsey Kirkland Ballet (GKB) in 2013. Anthony has danced various demi-soloist, soloist, and principal roles in GKA's and GKB's performances. Anthony performed in repertory including The Nutcracker, Raymonda, Le Corsaire, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, La Bayadere, Marius Petipa's Harlequinade, as well as works by the Danish choreographer Auguste Bournonville, such as La Ventana, Ballabile, and Jocky Dance. Anthony also taught ballet on faculty at the Gelsey Kirkland Academy Summer Intensive. In October 2014, Anthony competed in the New York Flamenco Certamen--a Flamenco competition held at Lincoln Center, New York City--and won 2nd place. Anthony continues to study Flamenco in his spare time, and recently traveled to Spain to study under Raquel Heredia, a very respected dancer in the Flamenco world.
