Introducing Winnie Berger (2016 NCG Recipient) / by Andrew Tran

Winnie Berger began her dance training in Tucson, Arizona, under the direction of Mary-Beth Cabana. She graduated from Fordham University and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater's BFA program in 2014, with a dual degree in Dance and Theology. Upon graduation, she had things to say and feelings to express, and found that dance is sometimes the only honest way of doing so. The importance of art and its transcendence to audience members has been a big revelation for her, and that's what Mook Dance Company aims to do: create art that is inspiring, reflective, dynamic, ethereal, and relatable to all individuals.
