Anthony ” Solo” Harris
It has been a long journey to the image you see . A journey filled with trials and triumphs. The poster child for at risk youth nationwide. The story of Anthony Harris “From the Darkness to the Light”. Starts off as a young troubled youth that could never seem to make the right decisions. The result of those actions caused him to get kicked out of schools constantly and that behavior finally caught up to him in his early years in high school. He was dismissed from Piscataway high school and forced to be home schooled because of his behavior. Even though Anthony’s dad was a dancer it never interested him , but while being home schooled Anthony had the opportunity to see the revolution street dance film “Breakin”. For what ever reason that film and those dancers changed Anthony’s out look on life and from that point he had something to be focus on other than the negativity he seemed to always bring upon himself. Anthony was able to work his way back into school and dance his way to graduation. He has been hooked ever since.
