Casandra is an aerialist who has been training in silks and lyra for almost 5 years, and recently added dance trapeze and straps to her list of apparatuses she is interested in! Casandra holds a PhD in Marine Biology and currently works by day as a scientist in a research laboratory at UNC Charlotte. She has a passion for teaching aerial as well and has been teaching silks at Charlotte Cirque and Dance Center since June! Her hobbies include reading way too many books about mythology, spending time with family and friends, and cuddling her new pup Zeus! Casandra is super excited to perform in her first ever Bloom, and can’t wait to share something special with you all!
