[Operations Manager, Dance Instructor | Zouk, Body Movement]
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!
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 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.
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!
