Kassandra began her training in her hometown of Vermilion, Ohio. In order to expand her training, Kassandra began taking classes at the School of Ohio Dance Theatre. Here, she was able to gain performance opportunities alongside the professional company. Upon graduation Kassandra was offered a position as a full time company member with Ohio Dance Theatre. After about five years of performing numerous classical and contemporary works with ODT, Kassandra began the next phase of her career with Neos Dance Theatre under the direction of Bobby Wesner. Working with many different choreographers, Kassandra was able to broaden her horizons stylistically. Highlights include In Grace of Wit by Stephanie Martinez, Leviathan by Alice Klock, along with works by Holly Handman-Lopez and Joseph Morrissey and a 1940’s Nutcracker, Karelia, and Romanian Rhapsody by Bobby Wesner. During her time with Neos, Kassandra also performed in guest roles with NPB and Ballet Legato. In her spare time, Kassandra enjoys gardening and napping. This is her first full season with North Pointe and she is excited to get back to performing.
