There's a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us
Somewhere.

Mike Baerga (a native of Houston, Texas) started performing as a competitive gymnast. He retired after he won the National Tumbling and Trampoline Champion title of 2005, to pursue a career in Dance after discovering Break Dancing and performing in his first big performance in Houston Grand opera’s Aida. After Graduating with a BA from the University of Houston with a double Major in Dance and Journalism, Mike trained at Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet and Joffrey Jazz & Contemporary, before pursuing a Graduate degree from NYU: Tisch School of the Arts. After graduating with an MFA in Dance and Choreography, Mike went on to pursue a career in Musical Theatre: performing in Susan Stroman’s The Merry Widow at The Metropolitan Opera, Disney Cruise Line, West Side Story and Paper Mill’s Broadway-Bound revival of Can-Can.

He credits his first Horton Teacher Harrison Guy in Houston for having a big impact on his career. His utilization of story telling and acting within movement deeply impacted Mike as a performer and a movement and he is forever grateful. Mike’s  University professors undergrad/grad also all had a huge impression on honing his technique and taking his raw talent and codifying it into a coherent physical voice. They aided Mike in exploring his body as a dancer and performer, and made it a mature and feasible tool for expression. Outside of performing, Mike is an avid foodie, and enjoys Traveling and long walks on the beach.
