Marisa Gold is an empathatic dance artist with a passion for all things soulful. Movement as a form of expression has been her instinct since the beginning of her memory. With a BFA in dance (SFU), certificate of completion from The Ailey school Independant Study program (NYC), and most recently, from The Graham school 2017/18 Intensive(NYC), Marisa has trained in a wide variety of Modern/Contemporary styles. Her professional performance/choreographic experience ranges from modern/contemporary concert dance to musical theatre productions to film and TV work. One her most important artistic influences is very deeply rooted in her Canadian and African-American background, which has profoundly affected her artistic endeavors. Marisa feels powerful and expansive when she remembers all who have come before her in artistic and self-expression. As she continues her poetic wandering, Marisa hopes to delve further into the mystery of our collective humanity as well as her own.
