ANTHONY STREET

Anthony joined the Australian Irish Dance company shortly before 2000, going on to perform at numerous corporate events and venues including the MCG, Hamer Hall (Melbourne Arts Centre) and the Sydney Opera House. At the age of 19 he set off on a 5-month tour that would turn into an eight-year career travelling the world, including a residency in Dublin with Dance of Desire as well as tours of France and Germany, before being cast as principal dancer for Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance.

Anthony’s next dream was to create his own production and after months of stressful preparation, in November 2011 Celtic Illusion was born. Now the popular stage show regularly performs to sell-out audiences across Australia, with Anthony performing the multi-faceted roles of director, producer, choreographer and lead dancer.
