Cassandra’s movement journey began as a rebellious 2 year old who was gifted a dance class in the hopes that it might help tame her wild spirit. While she’s not quite sure it ever really tamed her, she did fall head over heels in love and has been moving ever since.
She holds a BFA in modern dance performance, with a concentration in ballet, from Temple University in Philadelphia where she graduated magna cum laude. Currently, she performs with Kinesis Project Dance Theater and Erick Montes/Danceable Projects. In the past, she has also had the pleasure of working with Berenik/Pascal Rekoert for Fashion Week 2017, London’s “Bittersuite” for their premiere USA performance at BAM and chrismastersdance.
As a teenager, she was introduced to the world of Pilates as a way “fix broken bodies,” and as is in her nature, immediately rebelled from this ideology. Years later, a mentor reframed the system as a way to celebrate individual strengths and draw them out as support for any weaknesses, and that stuck as a way to not only to teach, but also to live.
Cassandra believes that everyone is beautiful, capable and ready to do more than they ever thought they could. She feels incredibly lucky to be continually inspired by the bodies she comes across and the stories they each carry.
