Cassie Powell began dancing in Chico, CA at the age of seven and was a member of the Chico Community Ballet for eight years. She continued her ballet and modern dance training as a Dance Major at University of California, Santa Barbara, where she received the Corwin Award for “outstanding achievement in choreography.” Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Cassie moved to San Francisco where she spent the next six years performing and choreographing with Vispo Dance (a modern dance company comprised of six collaborating artists). Since then, Cassie has been commissioned to choreograph for the Chico Community Ballet as well as guest perform several times in their annual repertory concert. Cassie currently co-owns a small skincare studio in downtown Spokane where she works as an aesthetician. She also has a thriving handcrafted jewelry business on etsy, and is immersed in a 500 hour yoga teacher training program. Cassie is thrilled to be a part of this new dance company and is honored to be performing Vincas’s dynamic and beautiful choreography.
