AMY SIGIL: S.I.G.I.L - The newest dance course written by dancer, choreographer, creator of ITS, and director of UNMATA, Amy Sigil. This program is all about sharing vocabulary and concepts in movement. You will be highly encouraged to dance, practice, teach or share this information directly after your first exposure to the program. There is no test! You will receive a certificate stating that you have been exposed and inspired by specific movements and ideas. This program is great for instructors teaching weekly classes who are constantly looking for new material, as well as movers seeking new inspiration for their personal practice.

This experience is organized into 5 sections. STAPLES, INSPIRATION, GENERATE, I (TEAMWORK), and LOVE. STAPLES includes movement sequences specific to the Sigil style. Massive amounts of vocabulary to add to your library of combinations, drills, isolations and overlays. INSPIRATION is full of...inspiration! Spirit changing exercises, games with gusto and everything that brings us to generate physical dreams. GENERATE is how to make dances quickly and efficiently as well as tricks for editing. I ... is all about how to work well in a group! Skills for setting yourself aside to better the group work. LOVE is why we do it! We will tackle such topics as fear, receptiveness and dedication.

Think of this program as a re-charge. Material you can use right away. This program isn't expecting perfection, it's expecting you to run with this and use it to inspire the world. Amy's students will perform as a group in the FISSION show.

Comments from Participants

I have never felt so welcomed, so open and so fed. The ladies I had the honor of sharing the pro-track with were nothing short of amazing. Big thanks to our teachers and mentors for providing a safe place to learn and grow as dancers and as human beings. The inspiration they provided both on and off the stage is something I’ll carry with me forever. And finally, THANK YOU to Tori Halfon and Yaniv Halfon because without you, there would be no Massive. You truly are providing means to help push this art form forward and bring dancers together in ways that would never be possible elsewhere. I love you all and am eagerly awaiting the sign up for next year’s MASSIVE!
