Cassandra Yasko found her love for dance at a young age in rural Maine, quickly taking her studies into the cities of Boston and New York. Her passion for dance expanded while spending summers at Boston Conservatory, Alvin Ailey, ABT, and attending the Joffrey Ballet School Trainee program. While earning her Associates in dance performance from Dean College, Cassandra’s enthusiasm for Modern and Contemporary dance flourished. Concluding her BA through UMass Amherst in Dance & Health, she continued to take the stage with dance companies in Massachusetts. Today, Cassandra enjoys sharing her enthusiasm of this art form by teaching dance to students of all ages and performing with Collective Motion as a company member.
Throughout her years in college, Cassandra found a parallel passion with yoga. She began taking yoga at a small local studio after her college classes concluded, continuing her practice years hence. Embracing her growing passion for yoga, Cassandra has completed her training as a certified Yoga Instructor, registered with the Yoga Alliance, and has completed continuing studies specializing in Yoga for Teens. She teaches Teen Yoga under her own LLC at Bright Star World Dance.
Cassandra is also founder, owner, and CEO of her own holistic product line, Cloud Nine Supplements. Launched in 2012, Cloud Nine features specifically tailored supplements for dancers, yogis and athletes, helping them to endure their performance lifestyles and maintain over all health.
