Marina DiLoreto, Dancer
Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Marina Di Loreto received her early dance training from The American Academy of Ballet under the direction of Maris Battaglia. After her high school graduation, Marina decided to pursue her love for dance and health and moved to Philadelphia to study at Temple University, where she graduated with her BFA in Dance Performance & Choreography and Minor in Public Health in 2017. At Temple, Marina focused on her passion for performance, participated in numerous department and student productions, and worked behind the scenes as a stage manager at the Conwell Dance Theater. Marina has worked closely with noted dance artists such as Jon Lehrer, Sidra Bell, Aszure Barton, Donald Byrd, Kevin Wynn, and Mark Dendy. In 2015, Marina was thrilled to be among forty chosen students to train with Jennifer Archibald’s prestigious contemporary and hip-hop intensive, Archcore40. In 2016, she continued her training intensively with Urbanity Dance Company in Boston, MA. Since moving to the DC metro area, Marina is a certified Barre3 instructor and will enter her second season with Motion X Dance DC.
