Born 1993 in Istres/France.

Lisa Biscaro Balle trained in contemporary dance and ballet at the conservatories of Istres/France (2004–2009) and Montpellier/France (2009–2012). She developed her skills as a performer and creator at the Centre Chorégraphique James Carles, formerly known as the Centre James Carles, Toulouse/France (2014–2016) and at the Centre de Développement Chorégraphique National de Toulouse, from which she graduated in 2018. While there, she appeared in choreographic works by Fanny de Chaillé and Benjamin Vandewalle. She is also a self-taught Samba dancer and singer. Since 2018, she has been devoting herself to the mastery of social and urban dances including House, Frevo, and Passinho.

In her career as a performer, she has collaborated with director and writer Margot Simonney (La soeur d’Olga, 2014); visual artist Ségolène Thuillart (Mécanique des corps, 2014;/Geste d’air, 2015), choreographer Jean-Marc Matos (2019) and Thomas Peyruse on the choreographic work *Magh (2020).

She sings Brazilian music with guitarist Quentin Daniel, her duet partner. She has been collaborating on interdisciplinary and horizontal experiments with the collective project Expérience Projet since 2017. Their first short choreographic piece, Il triello, debuted in 2019 at the Sophiensæle in Berlin/Germany on the occasion of the Lucky Trimmer Festival.

In 2019, she was a scholarship holder at the International Summer Campus organized by the Künstlerstadt Kalbe association in Kalbe/Germany.
