Marianela Boán is an internationally recognized and award winning choreographer currently living in the Dominican Republic and one of the most important artists of the Cuban and Latin American dance vanguard. Her revolutionary style "Contaminated Dance" radically mixes all the arts associated with dance, producing an expressive and original scenic result.

As a choreographer, dancer, and teacher, Boán has worked in more than 40 countries presenting her works and giving workshops in numerous venues and festivals in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. She has created nearly 70 choreographic works for dance, theatre, TV and film companies. She was a member of Danza Contemporánea de Cuba from 1973-1988, the founding director of the companies DanzAbierta Cuba (1988-2003), BoanDanz Action USA (2005-2010), and the Compañía Nacional de Danza Contemporánea of the Dominican Republic (2010-2020).
