A native San Franciscan, Anthony started his training in the arts a young age by singing in his church choir with his Grandmother. He was accepted into the San Francisco Boys Choir at the age of 6. He received a scholarship to San Francisco Ballet School where he studied for three years (and two Nutcrackers). Later, he studied under the direction of Elvia Marta at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts High School in San Francisco. During this time, he joined the Young Peoples Teen Musical Theater Company where he was finally exposed to musical theater and was able to mix the things he was most passionate about: his dance and vocal training.
