Ballet, Pointe, Acting

Tony started his career as an actor and dancer appearing in such Broadway shows as "The Mouse Trap", "Yes Means No", "Can Can", "No Strings" and "Little Me" with Bob Fosse. He has also appeared in the movie version of "How to Succeed" and "The Pink Panther." Tony has worked with Michele Lee, Jacque DeAmbosie, Carol Channing, Wayne Newton and many others.

Tony took classes in NYC at the New York City Ballet, the Yuskevich School of Ballet and with Anton Vielsack, a prominent adagio instructor who taught him how to partner a ballerina. He also studied under Ira Fokine and Sonja Dobrovinskya, but a ballerina named Marina Svetlova brought him with her for the Texas Ballet's production of "Aida." Tony was also a principal dancer for the Delaware Valley Ballet. Some of his roles were: the Prince in "Giselle" and "Cinderella", Romeo in "Romeo & Juliet" and the Nutcracker Prince in the "Nutcracker."

Tony met Pam at the Surflight where they both appeared in many productions such as: "Oklahoma", "Brigadoon", "South Pacific" and "High Button Shoes." Along with their adagio act they produced musical revues for night clubs, resorts and eventually had a long run in NYC at the Playboy club.

His acting teachers recommended he study dance to give him more grace on stage and now he's not only a teacher himself, but he still gets out there to perform.
