Founder / Director
MARISSA MOLINAR is a contemporary dancer, arts administrative activist, and Founder/Director of Midday Movement Series, a grassroots initiative cultivating a new generation of dance leaders. She holds a Bachelors in Environmental Science from Brown University with a focus in Urban Conservation and Environmental Justice, and she holds a certificate in Contemporary Dance from the Professional Training Program at Gibney Dance in NYC.
A late-comer to contemporary dance, Marissa's administrative work focuses on creating artistic sustainability by empowering artists in their fierce individuality while building fierce community. She is passionate about centering artists and administrators of color at all levels of the arts ecosystem. Marissa was the first Coordinator for the Network for Arts Administrators of Color at ArtsBoston, and she has worked as a consultant with Urbanity Dance, Next Steps for Boston Dance, and others. She is currently a Create The Vote Fellow with arts advocacy organization MassCreative. As an artist, Marissa is a self-described "professional class-taker," dedicated to taking every MIDDAY class and as many classes in the Greater Boston dance scene as possible. Marissa is a performer with Nathan Trice / RITUALS Dance Theater in Brooklyn NY and is a proud founding member of Ruckus Dance directed by Michael Figueroa.
