A Colorado native, Cassidy graduated from NYU with a degree in Dance and has been honored to professionally perform with Rashaun Mitchell, Silas Riener, and Netta Yerushalmy, while furthering her education through international workshops and company immersions.
In 2019 Cassidy was invited by Ohad Naharin, artistic director of Batsheva dance company and creator of Gaga movement language, to participate in the Gaga teacher training program. Cassidy was selected as one of a small group of dance artists for this specialized training. She considers Gaga to be her primary movement practice, and is committed to exploring this research daily.
About the Class:
We will move together, continuously for approximately one hour without pauses based on overlapping instructions. It is important not to stop and to keep your eyes open. Please arrive early. Bare feet with comfortable clothing is recommended. Injuries or limitations are welcome, as long as you listen to your body before telling it what to do. The only pain we want is the burning sensation in our muscles. We will sweat, dance, connect effort to pleasure, and get in touch with our silliness. Class is open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement.
