ITS Level 2
Thursdays at 6:30 pm
You must have tested out of Level 1 to attend a Level 2 class.
ITS is a super fun dance language utilizing a vocabulary of movements to create phrases to be danced as a group improvisation. ITS appears to be choreographed, however, it is truly created in the moment with the dancers on stage.
Created by Amy Sigil, director of UNMATA, based out of Sacramento California. SamiTe’ is the ONLY certified teacher instructing in the South Eastern US. Level 1 focuses on the basic vocabulary and stall movements, Level 2 starts to introduce different formations and combination movements. SamiTe’ considers ITS a dance team sport! It is so super fun!!! Level 1 is open to all levels of dancer.

ITS LEVEL 1
Tuesdays at 8:30 pm
ITS - Improvisational Team Synchronization (Improv Team Sync) is focused on utilizing movement as a language to be performed as group improvisation. This dialect, ITS, was developed by Amy Sigil, director of UNMATA and owner of HOT POT Studios in Sacramento, California, and comes to us through SamiTe', who travels to Sacramento to continue training and is a certified ITS instructor.
In Level 1 ITS you will learn the basic stall movements of the vocabulary as well as some concepts and combinations. ITS is a SUPER FUN incredible way to integrate into a community. This is currently the only Amy Sigil's ITS class offered in the state of Florida!!!! come get you some.
Testing is required to move to Level 2, and dancers frequently re-take Level 1. It's no joke... there's a reason UNMATA style is called 'tough-love belly dance'!
