    Marta began dancing at age three and in 2004 started her formal ballet training with Magaly Suarez in Pompano Beach, Florida. Marta then studied for five years at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, where she performed in many works by George Balanchine. Her instructors included Marcia Dale Weary, Leslie Hench, Lazlo Berdo, Rafael Gregorian, Barbara Weisberger, Michelle Lucci, and her partnering mentor, Richard Cook. At the age of 14, Marta was invited to participate in EDAS [European Dance Arts Salzburg], in Valencia, Spain, under the director Fernando Coelho. This program became her introduction to the modern styles of Nacho Duato, Martha Graham, Paul Taylor, and Trey McIntyre. In 2011 Marta was named New Artist at the Patel Conservatory by Director Peter Stark, where she performed as Snow Queen in The Nutcracker, set in Imperial Russia; the principal role in Christopher Fleming’s Cafe Music; and the principal ballet role in the opera Aida, Maestro Anton Coppola conducting. In 2012 Marta joined Milwaukee Ballet II, under Director Rolando Yanes, where she performed in Michael Pink’s Nutcracker, Swan Lake, La Bohème, and the principal role in Majisimo. Marta then accepted a traineeship with the Louisville Ballet, under Bruce Simpson, and in 2014 she performed in Giselle, the Paquita Pas De Trois, Spring Waters, Square Dance, Serenade in Suite en Blanc, and Marie in Val Caniparoli’s Nutcracker, under Director Robert Curran. Marta is excited to return for her second season and to choreograph for “Moving Beyond.”
