Antonio Smith



I was born and raised in Staten Island. I picked up dancing as a hobby in high school, however it quickly became the most important thing in my life as well as my most extensive talent. Dance has been one of my greatest teachers and has taken me places I cold never imagine. Since 2006 I've spent my years training and competing at breakdance competitions around the world, but whenever I get a spare moment I like to pick up a book and read as I believe it's crucial to keep the mind just as sharp as the body. Interestingly enough, it was reading that led to my first big job when I read about an audition to be a principle dancer on Baz Luhrmann's The Get Down. I applied the same purpose and drive that I put into all my efforts and booked it. Since then I've just kept going. I have bboy born and bboy machine to thank as major influences on my style.
