Ballaro Dance is a New York City based modern dance company performing the work of Marisa f. Ballaro.


The dance is about physical space, music, and time. Much of the choreography is fast paced, energetic, and playful, utilizing the dynamics of group versus solo work, with intricate spatial patterning and unison canon phrases used to shape space.
