Director

Ambitious Anthony Smith

With over 15 years’ experience in the dance industry, Ambitious Anthony does nothing less than enhance the skills of every dancer he works with and inspire them to reach beyond their goals and redefine their limits. In March of 2010, he created Ambitious Movement (AM). His vision was to bring dancers professional training in street dance (Waving, Popping, Tutting, Breaking, House, party dances) incorporated into his Hip-Hop choreography, developing a strong foundation in Hip-Hop and street dance technique. 


Since then, AM has been the runner-up on MuchMusic's “New.Music.Live” Best Dance Crew, has featured dancers on the 2018 iHeartRadio MuchMusic Video Awards, the Family Channel’s “The Next Step”, Xbox's Dance Central commercial, a Toronto Public Health commercial, a Chapman’s Ice Cream commercial, WE Day Toronto and the hype crew for New Year’s Eve 2014 at Mississauga’s Celebration Square. 


In addition to teaching, Ambitious Anthony is currently a Canadian regional and national judge for Hip-Hop International, the world’s biggest Hip-Hop dance competition, dancers from which often compete on TV shows like “World of Dance” and “So You Think You Can Dance”. Ambitious Anthony has also choreographed and artistically directed eleven theatre productions and numerous corporate events for companies including Nike, Walmart, Hugo Boss and Diet Pepsi Max, to name a few. He has also choreographed for local artists and has opened for artists such as Kanye West, T-Pain, Ciara and Ludacris.


In looking for new ways to inspire dancers, Ambitious Anthony has put together Don't Miss 

the Beat, a week-long intensive that gives studio and street dancers an opportunity to know what it’s like to be a professional, teaching each of them that it’s not about where you start, it’s about the journey and how you finish that counts.
