She has received the Dance Fellowship in Choreography and the Governor's Award for Arts in Education from the Louisiana State Arts Council and the Division of the Arts. Her acclaimed evening-length solo, "Box-O-Rama," was funded by the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Rockefeller Foundation. Lisa spoke to the Journal from her winter home base in Michigan.

Could you talk about some of the dance-related projects in which you've been involved?

My training has been equally in ballet and modern dance. When I left NYU, solo performance was what interested me. I've choreographed mainly what I call contemporary dance or "evenings of ideas." One is a piece called "Box-O-Rama," which was inspired by my involvement with some film friends who were shooting a documentary about boxing.
