Heyyy Charleston, I'm Casey! As many of you know, I've taken ownership of the formerly known Academy of Dance Arts; a creative space this community has loved for decades. I'm thrilled to introduce a new energy and vision that will expand our variety of dance forms offered, cultivate a fun and challenging dance environment while staying rooted in the things that this community has always loved about ADA.

My creative journey began at a young age and I spent my childhood training and competing across the country working alongside some of the industries leading choreographers.

I went on to dance as a Rally Cat at Clemson University and later earned a place as an NBA dancer on the Atlanta Hawks roster.

I'm beyond excited to have the opportunity to share what I love about dance with this community and look forward to kicking off Year #2!
