Alice Ripoll was born in Rio de Janeiro. She was studying to be a psychoanalyst at age 21, and took a deviant path to start study dance, once she felt very curious about possibilities of the bodies and movement research. Alice graduated at Angel Vianna's school, which is a very important center for dance and motor rehabilitation, and started to work as a choreographer.  

She directed many pieces, performed a few pieces - mostly of herself, and also worked with actors and circus artist. Currently her work embraces contemporary dance and urban dance styles from Brazil, through a research that opens space for the dancers to transform into images the experiences and memories that still live in each one.

Alice directs two groups: REC and SUAVE.
Her shows have been performed in several festivals in Brazil, such as Panorama Festival, Bienal SESC de Dança, Dança Gamboa Festival, Ceará Dance Biennial and Trisca- Arts Festival for Children; and abroad: Kampnagel - Internationales Sommerfestival, Zurich Theater Spektakel, Noorderzon Performing Arts, Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Saine-Saint-Denis; Projeto Brazil (in 4 cities in Germany: HAU in Berlin, Hellerau in Dresden, Tanzhaus in Düsseldorf and Mousonturm in Frankfurt), Centre National de la Danse (Paris), Festival de La Cité Lausanne, Norrlandsoperan (Umeå) and Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels).
