Anthony grew up in Healesville, Victoria Australia. As a child, Anthony was surrounded by motorbikes, race cars and hunting, little did he know his life and career would lead him to the World stage!
At the age of 6, Anthony was enrolled in a local gymnastics class and he eventually became State Champion for floor routines. At age 12 he was encouraged by his mates to try AFL Football. Then he saw Riverdance and his family quickly recognized this insatiable new interest. His Grandmother found a dance school in his hometown and suggested he start classes. Anthony enrolled and secretly took dance classes whilst still going to football training.
Irish Dancing became Anthony’s life – he had found his new passion. He lived and breathed dance, football quickly became a thing of the past.
At age 19, Anthony joined the International dance show Gaelforce for a 5-month tour of Europe, but as fate would have it, 5 months turned into an 8-year career travelling the world dancing! Anthony successfully auditioned for the show Dance of Desire and which was resident in Dublin for 6months and then toured Germany and France.
He soon heard heard Michael Flatley was starting a forth troupe with Lord of the Dance so he sent his extensive CV and was invited to a trial rehearsal, from here things moved very quickly. On the second day Anthony was asked to start learning the 2nd Lead Male role known as “The Bad Guy”. This turned into almost 5years touring and performing as a Principal dancer in Lord of the Dance.
Anthony’s next venture was to create his very own production. After months of intense preparation, Celtic Illusion premiered in November 2011. Since then, Celtic Illusion has extensively toured Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and in 2020 will tour Canada and the USA.

Georgia’s love for dance and performing began at age 3 with Classical Ballet classes at the prestigious James College in Adelaide, achieving honours in many Grade Examinations. After seeing Riverdance at the Eurovision Song Contest at age 8, Georgia begged her Mum to take her to Irish Dancing classes. After many years of training, she holds x10 Regional Irish Dance titles over 3 different States in Australia, has successfully competed Internationally in the UK, Ireland, America and Canada, achieving 15th place at the North American Nationals and 10th place at the All Ireland Championships.
To further her dance education and training, Georgia attended Charles Campbell Performing Arts Secondary College to study Classical Ballet, Contemporary Dance, Acting/Drama, Music and Vocal and performed in many productions, shows and concerts.
At the completion of her schooling, Georgia successfully auditioned and was accepted into Adelaide Centre for the Arts, where she completed a Bachelor of Performance Arts specialising in Dance. Her professional dance career took off with extensively touring Australia and New Zealand with the Irish Dance show Rhythms of Ireland and continued with multiple tours all over Europe and Asia with Magic of the Dance and Night of the Dance.
Returning to Australia in 2013 to perform the Lead female role in Celtic Illusion Georgia learnt the art of Illusion and Magic and began performing the show regularly as the lead dancer and female Illusionist. Through working extensively with Celtic Illusion, Georgia then assisted and co-produced the show Eclipse where she also performed the Lead female dance role and female Illusionist. Georgia is currently performing Lead dancer and female Illusionist with the re-created show, Celtic Illusion: Reimagined!
“You have to adapt so quickly in Celtic Illusion, one minute I’ll be executing a complex Illusion where every tiny movement must have complete precision and focus, then next I’ll be performing a contemporary solo which is about connecting the movement phrases smoothly and conveying the emotion of the music to the audience. It’s very challenging, but such diversity in a lead role is rare so it’s very rewarding!”
