Cassie was born and raised at Dance Image. She trained in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and pointe. She started teaching when she was 13 years old and attributes those early days at the studio to a life long love of children.
After graduating high school in 2009, Cassie decided to attend Northern Arizona University for English Literature in Flagstaff, Arizona. Though the mountain life and hiking adventures were fun, she missed the hustle and bustle of being at the studio. She decided to do an internship with The Walt Disney Company and that eventually led her to move to New York to attend Columbia University.
Cassie lived and worked in New York, specifically Times Square, for almost ten years. She learned and grew so much in her time working in Times Square, gaining extensive experience in guest service techniques.
Within that time period in her life she traveled a lot, though the time she decided to travel Europe solo was definitely her favorite.
Cassie is excited to be back at Dance Image as an alumni ready to give back to the studio that raised her.
