Marilisa Gallicchio discovered dance at the young age of 5 years in the school Obiettivo Danza in her native city Policoro, Italy. Six years later, she took part in the professional course for young classical and contemporary dancers Formazione Tersicore in Barletta (Italy) directed by the Italian choreographer Mauro de Candia.
At the age of 19, Marilisa moved to Madrid, Spain to attend the Conservatory “Maria de Avila” where she met and worked with choreographer Mario Bermudez Gil on the creation of Preludio. She started working with the Company Marcat Dance immediately after.
Marilisa is an original role in Marcat Dance´s creation of Preludio and Anhelo.
