Tony Williams Honored as Boston Dance Alliance’s 
“Dr. Michael Shannon Dance Champion”

Tony Williams is a long-time pillar of Boston’s dance community, from his early years as founding member and the first black male principal dancer of the Boston Ballet to his return to Boston and running his own dance studios in Jamaica Plain and Concord, MA. He is perhaps best known for creating Urban Nutcracker. His current company, City Ballet of Boston, made its debut at the BCA earlier this year.
