Take a Break: Anthony Morigerato

Updated: Thursday, November 21 2013, 02:18 PM EST
Anthony Morigerato is a dancer.


The 28 year old from Colonie first laced up his tap shoes
when he was 4 years old.





Over the years, he's gotten pretty good and developed some
fast feet.





I did break the world record for the most tap sounds in one
minute, Anthony says.





1163 sounds in one minute.





He's also danced his way clear across the county, even
appearing on Americas Got Talent.





I went on with my college roommate, he recalls.  He
played guitar and I danced, and we made it far into quarter-finals.





Anthony was already a pretty busy guy, traveling and dancing
in and out of New York.





After bringing down the house on national television, he
became a sought after teacher.





Ive taught in almost every state in the country. At least
40 states, and about 30 thousand kids a year.





No matter where his travels have brought him, or how busy
his schedule has been (Anthony typically ends up in at least 3 states each
week), he has always made time to come home and teach students attending
the same dance school he started tapping at 24 years ago.





Eleanor's School of Dance on Central Avenue.



Anthony still has family in the area, but the
students and
the staff at Eleanor' are like family too.  During the week we caught up
with him, he'd already been to Florida and North Carolina, then snuck
in his trip
home, before heading to Chicago.  



"I make a terrific living at it and have done amazing things and it's all
owed to the poeple here in this building."

"I feel it's part of my responsibility
to train the kids coming up now."
