Casey Blake | Barre Instructor and Dance Extraordinaire
Casey Blake started dancing in the third grade after taking an abrupt detour from gymnastics lessons. Little did she know, she was discovering a passion for movement that would lead her to get two degrees in dance and to work as a dance professional. Now, almost nothing gives her as much joy as sharing her love of movement with others through teaching. She teaches barre classes, dance/fitness classes and various dance styles to students of all ages and all levels of fitness. She is on the verge of completing her 200hr yoga certification, the fulfillment of a long-time dream. She loves to welcome new students in her class, and is passionate about helping people find a workout/class/movement style that best fits their needs. She strives to create a sense of community in her classroom, where everyone feels welcome and free to try new things. Her standard philosophy: Anyone can dance; you just have to think you can.
In Phoenix, Casey works as an arts administrator, does freelance work as a lighting designer and stage manager for local performing companies, and teaches regularly throughout the valley. She is thrilled to be a part of the In the RA team, and looks forward to seeing you in class!
