JANUARY ANNOUNCEMENT


Due to the recent announcement from the City, group classes will have to remain completely virtual for a bit longer. In-person slots may become available pending the status of Chicago's current Stay At Home Advisory & Phase 3 Status. We will keep you updated as the situation progresses.

While we wait to safely host in-person group classes, private lessons for individuals and couples are still available as in-person services!

Thank you for your patience and continued support during this time. It truly means the world to us and we look forward to dancing with you again!

Please feel free to message us with any questions you have via email.

OFFERINGS

Dance Instructor, Cassandra Carr, offers group classes and private lessons in Sensual Body Movement and Zouk. In addition to teaching, Cassandra also leads the administration team. At the front desk, she can assist you with your class registrations, questions regarding pricing or schedule information, and anything else you might need!

EDUCATION

Cassandra graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While at school, Cassandra studied printmaking and figure drawing. Her work surrounds relocation and the connections we make with others to recreate homes. After graduating she shifted her focus to the social dance floor while still thinking about the connections we co-create.

DANCE HISTORY

Dance instructor Cassandra Carr is really motivated to push her dance training and visibility as a woman who leads. She has been on many dance teams in several dance styles including Salsa, Bachata, Zouk, and Samba. Among those is Chicago's only queer performance team, Orenda and the studio's own Urbanity Zouk Project. She has also performed and taught at many dance congresses throughout her years as a dancer. In the majority of these performances, Cassandra is one of the only female leads. As a result, she has gained much respect from the community and is inspiration to many that want to follow in her footsteps.

TEACHING STYLE

Cassandra's goals within the studio are all related to prioritizing connection and consent in the classroom. She wants to build a comfortable environment where confidence can flourish in all of her students. Cassandra hopes to make everyone's favorite dance studio Urbanity!
