A native of Niagara Falls, New York, Marissa Krolewski began her dance education in ballet and jazz at Mary Ann’s School of Dance (MASD) under the direction of Mary Ann (Martin) Longval, where she received the Kathleen M. Knight scholarship, the highest honor at MASD.
Krolewski holds a Bachelor’s degree in Dance from SUNY at Buffalo, where she intensely studied ballet, jazz, and modern under the instruction of William E. Thomas, Thomas Ralabate, and Shelley Hain.
In 2004, Krolewski relocated to Boston and joined the administrative staff at Boston Ballet School. She became a faculty member in the Children’s Program in 2006, and provided creative dance and pre-ballet classes to Hill House Community members throughout its partnership with Boston Ballet School from 2006 to 2012. From 2005 to 2011, Krolewski performed as an original member of Urbanity Dance, a Boston-based contemporary dance company, which performed in venues across Massachusetts including Jacob’s Pillow, Earthdance, Springstep, and Boston’s own The Strand Theatre. Most recently, Krolewski has served as a Boston Ballet School Ambassador providing sample Children’s Program classes at local marketing events.
