Thanks to the American Dance Legacy Initiative and Rebecca Rabideau for the invite to teach at Glendale Community College in Phoenix, Arizona last week! A first time visit for choreographer, Marisa f. Ballaro, the students were a pleasure to teach and the sights of Arizona were truly breathtaking. She's hopes to get back again soon!
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.
