Marissa’s journey with dance has evolved from a ballet practice into a therapeutic practice and more recently into a spiritual and ritualized art form.
From Las Vegas dance studios to the ashram, from medicine ceremonies to strip clubs, Marissa’s exploration of movement has been vast and varied. As a result, she has been able to cultivate a dynamic set of tools to evoke deeper harmony and connection to the mind, body, and spirit
