Bain Dance Academy is the perfect environment for my daughter to learn to dance while having fun. Miss Marisa is so wonderful with the children!
Love this studio and its owner!!
Love love love Ms. Marisa! There’s nothing cuter than baby ballerinas!
Marisa is a gifted teacher. Her ability to inspire the youngest of students to reach for the stars is priceless. Add to that her technical expertise and her creative choreographic skills and you have a teacher of remarkable capacity. With equal amounts of authority and tenderness, she strives to brings out the gift in each and every one of her students. Regardless of whether the student is a recreational dancer or one driven to perform on Broadway, Marisa teaches with energy and enthusiasm, giving 100% of herself to her students and her art.
I am so thankful that my daughter Samantha had the opportunity to dance with Marisa.

Marisa can offer the best in technique and dance to her students.

Our daughter danced with Marisa for years in Malibu, California. Marisa is not only a creative teacher and choreographer, she is devoted above all to the well-being of her students. She is an amazing teacher and motivator. She teaches with sensitivity to her students’ skills, talents, and personalities. She has an acute understanding of and sensitivity for the physical, emotional, and artistic growth and development of her students. She also appreciates her students as well-rounded individuals, and honors each student’s unique gifts. I had the honor of working with Marisa as a dance company mom. She is an amazing spark. Marisa is an incredibly talented artist, teacher, and choreographer. She is an inspiration. The light in her smile reflects the light in her soul!

Marisa’s versatility as a teacher was such that she could inspire a 3 year old future ballerina to learn their “very first” ballet position and in the same day instill that same inspiration to a teenager in an advanced hip hop class. Her energy was unsurpassed and her students were totally dedicated to her. Students will find that her passion for dance is contagious and I’m sure that they will follow her for many years.
