We're Growing our Community of Company Performers!


Ballaro Dance seeks NYC-based dancers with 2+ years of professional experience to join the Company as a guest for several performances throughout the end of the 2021 Season. (Must be vaccinated against COVID -19; continued work in 2022 may be possible.)


Interested dancers should be thoughtful movers who are curious about the creative process and able to engage with choreography ranging from full-bodied and athletic, to storytelling and gesture-based work that requires vulnerability and finding personal connections. In addition, Ballaro Dance is interested in working with performers who posses a desire to connect with community, engage in conversation, and participate in various SEE, MOVE, & SHARE programming related to the Company's mission (included below.) We are a big-hearted community of MOVERS; we are looking for those who can bring positivity, an ability to problem solve, and the tenacity to dig deep into our work together.


The Company rehearses weekly on Thursdays from 6-9pm and twice monthly at a pop-up TBD weekend time. If you are interested in connecting with us, please email Founding Artistic Director, Marisa f. Ballaro, at In order to meet you, and to give you a chance to meet us, we'd love for you to join us on Zoom for Community Class on Thursday, September 16th. Check out our IG and our YouTube Channel to get a sense of our work and our Company spirit ahead of time, then reach out to Marisa for full details! We looking forward to MOVING with you and getting to know you.



About The Company:

Ballaro Dance builds community through the creation and presentation of modern dance while inviting its audience, often first-time dance viewers, to SEE, MOVE, & SHARE with the Company in an approachable, welcoming environment.


We dance to engage with people; we choreograph to tell stories; we produce art to build community


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


The dances are about physical space, music, and time. Small gestures are brought to life while making meaning through storytelling.
