Everyone is welcome.
No prior experience required.

Sarah Baumert is known for her thorough and diverse instruction and her dedication to holding space for individual personal discovery. She facilitates whole body alignment in her students as a way for them to access balance, strength, mobility and physical clarity. Through sensory rich movement experiments, she guides students in cultivating mindfulness and deepening their learning process.

Receiving Metropolitan Regional Arts Council’s Next Step Grant in 2011, Berit Ahlgren traveled to Tel Aviv, Israel to study the Gaga Movement Language, and subsequently moved to Israel to pursue teacher certification between 2011— 2012. Ahlgren earned her MFA in Dance from Tisch School of the Arts in 2016, and has since been on faculty at the University of Minnesota and Winona State University, performing with independent choreographers between Minneapolis and New York, and choreographing her own body of work for both stage and camera under her dance organization, HoneyWorks.
