Her training accomplishments also include completing both Glenn Wood Tap exams and RAD Ballet major examinations.

Growing up in the world of competitive dance, a highlight of Casey’s competitive career was placing first overall in the Pro/Am division at Showcase Australian Dance Championships Nationals in 2018.

Being committed to continuing to grow as both a dancer and educator, Casey has also recently become certified as an Acrobatic Arts instructor.
