About Igal Perry
Born in Israel, Igal Perry began his dancing career with Karmon, a folk dance company, and later joined the Bat-Dor Dance Company where he worked with leading teachers and choreographers including Inesse Alexandrov, Benjamin Harkarvy, John Butler, Rudi Van Dantzig, Alvin Ailey, Paul Sanasardo, and Lar Lubovitch. Upon arriving in the United States, Mr. Perry joined Dennis Wayne’s Dancers as a ballet master and choreographer. During that period, he staged John Butler’s work for the New York City Opera, the Opera of Munich, Caracas Ballet, and Teatro Alla Scala in Milan, where he also directed the world premiere of Krzysztof Penderecki’s opera Paradise Lost.
Mr. Perry’s first full evening of ballets, Chromatic Motions, was presented in 1979, in collaboration with the Manhattan School of Music, presenting works to original music by Rand Steiger, Randy Packer, Edward Billous, and more. In 1981 and 1982, he headed the ballet department at Jacob’s Pillow, and went on to co-direct the Clive Thompson Dance Company. In 1983, Mr. Perry celebrated the opening of his dance school Peridance Center, now Peridance Capezio Center, which has since been providing a nurturing and professional environment for all dancers. A year after the opening of his school, he founded his dance company the Peridance Ensemble, now Peridance Contemporary Dance Company, for which he has choreographed over 50 works. Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), The Joyce Theater, and City Center are amongst the many theaters in which the Company has performed through the years. Mr. Perry has collaborated with numerous composers including John Mackey, Quentine Chappetta, Phillip Hamilton, and Avner Dorman, with whom he has created the full length workDreams and Demons (2003).
Mr. Perry’s international engagements as a teacher and choreographer include The Scapino Ballet and Het National Ballet (Holland), Laterna Magica and the National Ballet (Prague), Architanz (Tokyo), The Royal Ballet of Sweden, The National Ballet of China, and the Kwang-Ju City Ballet Company (Korea), where he also serves as Artistic Director for the Kwang- Ju International Ballet Competition. Mr. Perry’s works are in the repertories of companies throughout the world, including the Batsheva and Bat-Dor Dance Companies (Israel), Companhia de Danca de Lisboa(Portugal), the Alberta Ballet (Canada), Complexions (USA) and Alvin Ailey II (USA). Since 1995, Mr. Perry has been serving as guest master teacher at Juilliard, where he also staged his Intimate Voices, and premiered Mourning Song, created for the Juilliard Dance Ensemble. Mr. Perry’s work has been repeatedly presented at the prestigious Florence Dance Festival (Italy) by his Company as well as by Florence Dance Company.

CONTEMP POP JAZZ WITH MAGGIE KOH
Wed 27 Feb 2013, 8 to 9:30pm
An eclectic mix of Contemporary Jazz and Hip Hop, this exciting workshop is open to aspiring new dancers and professionals regardless of dance background. The class is athletic and a fusion of technique and performance, which transforms into a powerful style of Contemporary Pop Jazz. Dancers will learn to explore their physical possibilities and express their own. 'No rules. Just dance!'
A creative, free spirit, Maggie recalls her first Tap class at the age of 8, where she fell in love with dance and never fell out again. In 2001, she was awarded a year-long scholarship programme with Jitterbugs Swingapore®. With a strong desire to make a career out of what she loved most, Maggie travelled to major cities such as Australia and recently New York City, attending intensive programmes and has worked with choreographers Dejan Tubic and Janelle Ginestra (Los Angeles) upon her return to Singapore. More recently, she co-directed and produced her first Contemporary pop show, 'Lambano', and is looking to bring her ideas to a bigger platform. Her credits include 'Equus', 'Vision', '881' and 'December Rains'.
