West Coast Swing Academy
BIO: At the age of 15 years old, Cassy discovered her fierce love and passion for West Coast Swing Dancing. As a die hard “westie”, she has been dancing ever since. Competing nationally at the All-Star level, she prides herself on musicality and quality of movement.
Currently, as a full-time West Coast Swing Dance Instructor, she continues to share her passion and love of dance with all those interested in connecting with the music and creating a dance connection with others.

She began teaching "creative movement" at age 15 to girls 2-14. They have performed at numerous venues across Phoenix. For this achievement she won the 2015 "National Federation Independent Businesses Young Entrepreneur award."
Rob began line dancing in the early '90's. He soon decided to compete entering the UCWDC Country couples and line dancing competitions. He moved to the "Superstar" division winning a world championship in line dance choreography. One of his dances was selected for official UCWDC competition. The mid '90's found his focus shift to West Coast Swing gaining Champion status. Rob brings unusual styling to his WCS, an influence from hip hop days. Rob's mantra-It's just dancing and it should be fun!
