Anthony Sigler began tap dancing at the age of four in Grand Forks, North Dakota. He pursued jazz, ballet, modern, and contemporary during his time at Becky Seamster’s Dance Studio in Kokomo, Indiana, as well as continuing to study tap. He interned and apprenticed with Heather Maloy’s Terspicorps Theater of Dance in Asheville, NC, as well as participating in the inaugural year of the Muses of Terpsicorps.
He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where he received his BFA in Dance. At UNCSA, he performed roles in classical ballets such as the Cavalier, Snow King, Herr Drosselymeyer, and Arabian in Ethan Stiefel’s Nutcracker; the Four Men’s variation in Susan Jaffe’s Raymonda; and was televised statewide as Von Rothbart in UNCSA’s production of Swan Lake, Act III. He also performed in the UNCSA- filmed productions of Jeux and Oklahoma, the latter of which regularly shows on UNC-TV Broadcasts.
Anthony was privileged to work with dance historians Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer in a choreographic revival of Nijinsky’s Jeux. He also performed in contemporary works such as an excerpt from William Forsythe’s New Sleep; the “Metacomet” Solo in Jose Limon’s The Unsung; The double pas de deux in Susan McCullough’s Sonnet and Fugue; and in an excerpt of Twyla Tharp’s Sweet Fields performed at the Kennedy Center as part of a tribute to astronaut Sally Ride. Anthony has attended summer programs at Northwest Dance Project, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, San Francisco Ballet, Southold Dance Theater, and the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. He has participated in Tapology and the St. Louis Tap Festival.
Anthony is excited to begin his second year as a dancer with Missouri Contemporary Ballet.
