Watch Performance Reel*
Anthony Tette was born and raised in Rochester, New York. He discovered his passion for movement from a young age and has been cultivating his practice ever since. After graduating from high school a year early, he moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to train with Slawmoir Wozniak at Master Ballet Academy to
strengthen his classical technique. Anthony is a Dean’s Scholar earning his BFA in Dance at the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, where he developed a love for concert dance under the direction of Jodie Gates and William Forsythe. He performed works by George Balanchine, Jiří Kylián, William Forsythe, Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Ohad Naharin, Jermaine Spivey and Bret Easterling. USC Kaufman has given him the space to explore his choreographic interests and to create works surrounding mental health, the limits of the human body and polyrhythm.
Anthony has also worked professionally as a guest artist with ISHIDA Dance, a project-based contemporary company in Austin, Texas, where he participated in the creative process for projects while gaining experience in a professional setting. His training was expanded with summer programs at Nederlands Dans Theater, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Jacob’s Pillow. Anthony is interested in continuing his movement meditation practices to develop a greater understanding of his own body and realization of a choreographic collaboration vision. Upon graduation, Anthony’s goal is to join a concert contemporary company to continue his lifelong journey of experiencing physical and artistic challenges.
