MARGHERITA TISATO has been a Principal Dancer with Vangeline Theater since 2008. She started studying dance in Italy at the age of 8. She delved into Humprey-Limon and classical techniques paired with a deep work rooted in Maria Fux's dance-therapy studies and the Tibetan theory of the 5 elements/seasons. Margherita taught dance classes to children and adults, including diversely able individuals, psychiatric patients and court involved population from 2001 through 2006. In New York since 2006, she dances with Sokolow Theater Dance Ensemble, Dances for Isadora and independent choreographers while studying Humphrey-Limon and contemporary techniques. She started training with Vangeline of Vangeline Theater in 2008 and through her with other prominent Butoh Masters, such as Katsura Kan, Diego Pinon, the Tamanos, Yumiko Yoshioka, amongst others, making Butoh an integral part of her artistic and spiritual practice. Margherita is a certified Vinyasa and Yin yoga instructor and teacher trainer, and has the privilege to share her work in yoga studios, prisons and schools.

This unique training is an invaluable tool for dancers, actors, adult beginners, encouraging participants to open up and expand physically and energetically. This workshop creates a gentle and supportive environment to start an individual and collective process of investigation through creative movement.
Our classes are open level and beginners are welcome.
