About Anthony Harris
The story of Anthony Harris starts off with a young troubled youth that could never seem to make the right decisions. The result of those actions caused him to get kicked out of schools constantly which finally caught up to him in his early years in high school. He was dismissed from his high school and forced to be home schooled due to bad behavior.
Even though Anthony’s dad was a dancer it never interested him. However, after seeing the film "Breakin" , but while being home schooled Anthony had the opportunity to see the revolution street dance film “Breakin”, Anthony came to see dance as an outlet. He was soon able to work his way back into school and dance his way to graduation.
After high school Anthony transformed into a bright, ambitious, hard-working, committed, and goal oriented young man. One of his most praised accomplishments is his commitment to spreading the importance of arts and education and its benefits to young children. While expanding on his arts outreach program, he joined forces with four other young men to form the popular five member dance group, Envy, out of New Jersey.

In addition to these accomplishments, Anthony also instructs dance classes all over NJ. He is committed to providing a positive alternative for urban youth every where. Anthony believes that if he can do it, we all can do it.
