1 min read

Anthony’s parents wanted him to become a priest. Instead, he has captivated millions with his ballet.

More than 15 million people have watched his joyful leaps and pirouettes, undeterred by the rain and surroundings. The video caught the eye of the elite American Ballet Theatre, which gave him a scholarship and arranged internet access for virtual training this summer. Next year, he will train in the United States on a scholarship from Ballet Beyond Borders.
