Berit Ahlgren

Born and raised in Minnesota, Berit was trained through the Minnesota Dance Theater and went on to St. Olaf College where she received a B.A. in Biomedical Studies and Dance. After graduating in 2005, she returned to St. Paul, MN and joined the newly formed TUDance Company where she performed for the next six years. She was first introduced to Gaga after seeing Batsheva perform in Minneapolis in 2008 and took an instant curiosity to the suppleness and strength that the dancers possessed. In 2011, thanks to the Minnesota Regional Arts Council’s “Next Step” grant, Ahlgren traveled to Tel Aviv for the Gaga Intensive summer course and subsequently joined the pilot Gaga Teacher Training Program in the fall of 2011. Since returning to the states, Berit is again performing with TU Dance in Minnesota and touring around the U.S., while basing herself between Minneapolis and Brooklyn, NY.
