She furthered her dance training at Cawthra Park Secondary School in the Regional Arts Program for Dance. In 2008 she graduated from Ryerson University’s Theatre Dance Program under the direction of Nadia Potts, obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with Honours.

Back on land, Marisa has had the opportunity to perform for a number of professional theatres all across Canada.

She is also a guest teacher for the Canadian Dance Teachers’ Association and has had the privilege to guest choreograph for Cawthra Park and other dance studios throughout the GTA.
