Biography: Melissa Anthony

melissaMelissa Anthony was born in Sydney, Australia with a passion to dance from the age of 6. Melissa also was a high achiever in Gymnastics, She enjoyed all kinds of competitive sports such as Surf Life saving, swimming, athletics and worked hard to achieve high results where she won many gold medals at state championships. She then turned her attention to becoming an accomplished dancer and entertainer.

As a teenager, I performed with big Artist such as Tina Turner and John Farnham to name a few. I also performed in Warner Bros Shows and starred in TV commercials and fashion parades for Bloch dance ware. I was also given the privilege to model the official 2000 Olympic Volley Ball Uniform. I danced in Adagio performances in Darling Harbour and special events such as Elvis shows and Football Spectaculars. I was assistant director and choreographer for the Rockdale Music Society Production "Fame the Musical". I performed internationally for the Paris Review and then returned to Sydney to perform in many shows.


I began teaching at an early age coaching gymnastics at the NSW Academy and gained my gymnastics teacher's qualifications and certificate IV in Dance. I managed the Shire's outer centres for the YMCA and trained dance/gymnastic in Schools around the Eastern Suburbs, Sutherland Shire and St George areas.

I opened MGA Entertainment, specialising in producing theatrical performances and circus acts, trapeze artist, acrobats, stilt walkers, fire jugglers, adagio acts and dance shows such as Moulin Rouge Soundtrack Premiere and Planet of the Apes, in Sydney's Corporate E vents and Night Clubs.

I gained so much experience and I wanted to share my passion for dance by passing this on in the training of children. MGA is focused on dance and acrobatics but also on showing methods of keeping fit and healthy throughout life. I take a personal interest in the individual needs of every student in my School.

MGA Academy has been running successfully for 12 years at the Ramsgate Dance Studio and Schools in the St George area.
I will continue to the best of my ability to provide excellence in dance and acrobatics in a safe and fun learning environment.
