She feels blessed to be back on the dance floor again, and is now dancing and teaching professionally full-time. Marisa has been featured in various commercials, infomercials, and tv shows, and has performed at hundreds of shows, events, and private parties. She recently started pursuing a career in acting as well, and enjoys the process of continually learning and challenging herself.
