Hi! I am Caitlyn Casson, an NYC transplant originally from Philadelphia. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of South Florida, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance and a minor in Psychology. I have performed repertoire by distinguished artists Bill T. Jones, Doug Varone and Talley Beatty.

I have a strong desire for internationally diverse, artistic endeavors which has taken me across the globe to perform and teach. Since 2013, I have been working as an international dance trainer with MindLeaps to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda.

Most recently, I performed at the Ubumuntu Arts Festival in Kigali, Rwanda. I have also toured nationally with Eleone Dance Theatre, Balasole and DamageDance Companies. Currently, I share my time dancing with Ariel Rivka Dance, Dance Entropy and Matthew Westerby Company.
