Washington, DC native Antonio “Tony” Jefferson is an arts and fitness enthusiast and connoisseur with over 15 years of experience. Antonio’s training started with hip-hop and jazz and quickly expanded to many other styles. He is trained in disciplines ranging from modern and theater to gymnastics, kickboxing and everything in between. Tony has trained, performed, choreographed and taught throughout the US and abroad, including the honor of performances at the White House, Library of Congress, and National Mall and for Cirque du Soliel, IBM, Good Morning America, Supermodel Cocoa Rocha and Jay Z's Rocawear to name a few.
Antonio’s passion for human movement extends beyond dance. As a nationally certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, Tony has had the opportunity to help individuals from all walks of life reach and exceed personal health and fitness goals. His undergraduate studies in dance, kinesiology, sports medicine and nutrition have given him a clear understanding and unique approach to both fitness and dance.
After a 4 year dance hiatus, Antonio decided to relocate to New York in June of 2011 to further pursue his career in the arts. He has since had the opportunity to study, train and perform with renowned choreographers and instructors and educate many on dance and fitness. He currently teaches throughout NYC and is a member of Jamie J & Co. and Rhapsody James’ Motivating Excellence.
