AMY SIGIL icious!!
DFTH welcomes powerhouse Amy Sigil to Houston for a weekend of workshops and two shows, celebrating our 10th Anniversary!

Amy is known for traveling the world infecting each city with her signature Sigil Style; building communities of hard work, heart, and a lot of fun! Amy's dance “classroom” is better described as a “gym”. A born athlete, dance is her language and movement is survival. When taking class with her, expect a full body experience. Never give up, never settle. “Fate Favors the Risky”. Amy has been creating & building on her Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) vocabulary for the last 10 years, and building her ITS community around the world.
Friday night will include a welcome reception and hafla at the DFTH Studio. Saturday's Gala Show will take place at The Barn, 2201 Preston St., Houston, TX 77003.
