She is the recipient of an Upper Midwest Emmy Award as well as, a Sage Award for Dance and Choreography. She most recently has won an American Composers Forum Grant funded by the Jerome Foundation for her classical composition, A Requiem for Zula (2019) written in celebration of her Mother. She will be doing musical improv and debuting new music.

Wailing Babies is a collective comprised of Maggie Bergeron, Nora Jenneman, and Jamie Ryan-Karels. They create and perform work together, in a spirit of responsiveness to each other and their environment. They are grateful to Kelvin Wailey for bringing them together and making Wailing Babies real. Their piece is about the ritual of settling in, putting down roots, and making do with what you’ve got.
