Miss Cassie has been dancing for over 20 years. She grew up in Porterville, California where she started dancing at the age of 7 at Deenie’s Dance Workshop. After a few years of learning ballet, tap, and jazz, she joined a performing group within her studio called Pam’s Pizzazz. In high school, she discovered her love for choreography. She submitted her first choreographed dance with my teacher’s 2-year-old daughter in an audition for the city’s annual City of Hope Spectacular and her piece made it into the show. This event really opened her eyes to a discovery of what she knew she wanted to do; teach children how to dance.
She moved to Orange County and attended Cal State Fullerton to get her bachelor’s degree in Dance. While in college, she had the opportunity to work with many great teachers who studied under famous dance pioneers like Martha Graham, Jose Limon, and Lester Horton. She also attended two Pulse Dance Tours and studied under choreographers from the television show, “So You Think You Can Dance”, including Mia Michaels, Tyce Diorio, Tabitha and Napoleon, Wade Robson, and Dave Scott.
After receiving her dance degree, she decided to start working at the “Happiest Place on Earth”. She completed her Teacher’s Credential at Fullerton College to benefit her understanding of teaching children in an educational setting. “I love working for Dancing in Harmony, it is such a rewarding experience to be doing something I truly love. Seeing a child’s growth in dance and in life, makes me feel proud to be a part of this warm and fun company”.
