Antonio began taking dance lessons when he was about 16, as he started his freshman year of high school. He had just moved in with a family whom he went to church with, and was going through a hard time, struggling and homeless. They asked him what it is he'd like to do and he immediately said dance. He'd seen ballet on TV years before and knew that it was what he wanted to do. While the road hasn't been easy, he's been fortunate to dance with Cincinnati Ballet and De la Dance Company play roles such as the Nutcracker in THE NUTCRACKER JAZZED-UP, a cat in PUSS IN BOOTS, and the blue bird in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. His goal is to continue to work to become a dance artist, and eventually a choreographer. In his free time he enjoys dancing at clubs, riding his bike, and playing his guitar.
