  Marisa is a versatile dancer with a great passion for contemporary dance. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from The Ailey School/ Fordham University and has received additional training from prestigious programs around the country. Her career has afforded her the opportunity to work with a wide variety of choreographers, companies, and projects and to perform in some of New York's most reputable venues, as well as nationally, internationally, and on screen. She strives for movement that is dynamic, sensitive, expressive, and fulfilled, always underpinned by her strong technical foundation. For Marisa, dance is an opportunity to explore, communicate, and share the beauty of the multi-faceted human experience. She loves the creative process, improvisation, and multi-disciplinary collaborations. Marisa is also passionate about using movement as a means of community engagement and intercultural exchange.
