HoneyWorks Winter Intensive with Berit Ahlgren – Hosted by Zenon Dance School - December 18 to December 20

Join Berit Ahlgren of HoneyWorks for a Winter Intensive before the holidays, hosted by Zenon Dance School!

Monday, December 18 – Wednesday, December 20
9:30-11:00am daily

The Intensive
We will start class slowly, warming up the muscles, joints, fascia, and mind through sensation-based movement research and creative multi-tasking within the body. Based in the Gaga Movement Language, this entry point will support the phrasework taught from the HoneyWorks repertoire, as well as time for generative engagement amongst the participants in the room. Students should expect a supportive environment, a class that meets them where they’re at, and a fun, inspirational time to move both independently as well as in unison, whether in guided improvisation or shared choreography.

About Berit
Native to St. Paul, MN, Berit Ahlgren trained at Minnesota Dance Theater with Loyce and Lise Houlton, and was a founding company member of TU Dance, performing between the years of 2006-2016. Receiving Metropolitan Regional Art Council’s Next Step Grant in 2011, Ahlgren studied the Gaga Movement Language in Tel Aviv, and shortly thereafter moved to Israel to pursue an intensive, yearlong teacher certification. Ahlgren transitioned to New York City in 2014 to obtain her MFA in Dance from NYU/Tisch School of the Arts, developing ties in the community while teaching Gaga at both Gibney and Mark Morris Dance Centers. Returning to Minnesota in late 2016, Ahlgren has been working as a dance educator, performer, choreographer, and collaborator across the U.S. and abroad, using her relationship with Gaga as a lens to define her artistic process. Ahlgren established the organization HoneyWorks in 2019 to house her creative work, and most notably co-created “Live at the Shed” in 2020 with Helen Hatch (Hatch Dance), an annual, summer, outdoor dance production with a rotating cast of 25+ dancers from the community.
