Owner & Lead Instructor
Cassie is a 2010 graduate of Coe College. While at Coe she studied elementary education and child development, graduating with a BA in elementary education. Cassie holds an Iowa Teaching License and is certified in CPR and First Aid.
Cassie began dancing at the age of 3 and took studio lessons until the age of 14. Cassie's love of dance didn't end there! She went on to become captain of the Voyager Dance Team at Vinton-Shellsburg High School and led her team to a state championship in 2004. Cassie continued her dance career at Coe College where she competed in collegiate dance competitions and performed at various sporting events.
After college, Cassie began teaching at Hiawatha Day School and soon realized that she wasn't quite ready to make dancing a part of her past. With the encouragement of Christa Fielder, Owner of Hiawatha Day School, Cassie began sharing her passion for dance with her students. In the fall of 2011, Cassie opened Daytime Dancers and began to share her love of dance with students all over the Cedar Rapids area.
Cassie is currently living in her hometown of Vinton. She is happily married to Andy and they have three children: Talon (3 years), Brynn (18 months) and Brooks (1 month).
