Meet your colleague! (NEW FEATURE!)
Maggie Bergeron is an adjunct instructor in the Dance Program, teaching Intro to Dance, Composition 1 and 2 and also Modern 1 and 2 in the past. Maggie also had the joy of coordinating the North Central Regional American College Dance Festival at the U of MN in 2009. Maggie's life outside of the department includes directing the Dance Program at the Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists, a charter school dedicated to authentic, pre-professional training in the arts for grades 9-12, dancing with Shapiro and Smith Dance and going to grad school to get her high school teaching license. Maggie is also a choreographer, and intends to make more work with her body after she is done making a lot of work with her brain in grad school.
