Tony Mayes is a NYC-based performer and teacher. This Texas native has been working in ‘the business’ his entire life. After graduating from Ithaca College with a BFA in Acting, he moved to New York City and quickly immersed himself in its theater culture. It was soon after Tony found and fell in love with NYC’s tap scene after seeing Savion Glover’s company perform at the now gone Variety Art’s Theatre in Union Square, NYC.
As a performer, producer, writer, teacher, director, tap dancer, stage manager and technician, Tony works constantly in theater and tap. Tony completed an eleven-year tenure with the American Tap Dance Foundation and currently teaching at several prestigious NYC dance studios.
