Dans - Urban Jazz Dance Company (Verenigde Staten)
Growing up in Vallejo, Marissa studied dance at Berkeley Ballet Theater under Sally Streets and Ilona McHugh. She then pursued her BFA in Dance at Alonzo King LINES Ballet/ Dominican University of California. Prior to graduation in 2017, Marissa performed and taught dance in Guatemala and Nicaragua with JUNTOS Collective. In 2016-2017, she co-lead a project for the Isadora Duncan Dance Awards to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. Marissa is currently a trainer at San Francisco GYROTONIC®.
Marissa’s first performance with Urban Jazz Dance Company was in 2018. The community within the company has allowed her to learn and share the power of communication through movement- whether it be learning new rhythms in dance, or new words in ASL.
