We’re very lucky to have Instructor Anthony!
Recently Like most hip hop dancers, Anthony, a Newmarket resident, got his start in Hop Hop on his own with a group of friends that also enjoyed street dancing. However, once Anthony realized he wanted to make a career of his passion to dance, he began to train at a professional level and has trained at several World of Dance Boston Workshops, most recently he worked with MTV Dance Crew Member – Phunk Phenomenon – Chris DiNicola.
Currently Anthony teaches at L.A. Beats Dance Studio in Portsmouth, NH and has also taught a Demo class at last year’s Newmarket Jr./Sr. High Wellness Day. Last summer Anthony was voted Best Instructor at Newmarket Rec’s Camp Wanna Iguana Kid’s Choice Awards.
When not training or teaching Hip Hop, Anthony enjoys competing in regional dance competitions, up next is Prelude, an Urban Dance Competition in Boston, where he will be performing with New City Dance Crew. Anthony is very excited to give back to Newmarket and insists on volunteering his talent and passion for hip hop with Newmarket kids teaching them the latest and greatest steps of the Hip Hop Dance Genre.
