“Cassandra Essman is a transplant from the wind city that has been doing various forms of dancing for 15 years. She started at a ballet school doing jazz, tap, and contemporary and later branched out into hip-hop and Latin. Cassandra’s endless enthusiasm and boundless energy for dance and her students is evident when meeting her for the first time. She believes that anyone can dance and is determined to fill the world with happy confident dancers. Cassandra is a certified Arthur Murray instructor that has received teaching and dancing training from many world-renowned coaches and dance champions within Arthur Murray including John Clark, Todd Combs, and James Dutton. One of Cassandra’s passions as a teacher is watching students come in as beginners, grow in their dance and also themselves. It’s one of the most awe-inspiring things to witness when a student becomes a fearless dancer or to escape the shell of shyness and be able to hold their own in social situations.”
