Cassandra was the Captain of her High School Cheerleading Team for 4 years, teaching and choreographing for her peers. She was also a founding member of Regent Collective Dance Company established in 2015, her senior year at Notre Dame San Jose.

Cassandra went on to study dance at Saint Mary’s College of California, where she received training in ballet and modern dance, along with independent study of Philippine dance.  She danced with the SMC Dance Company and was a member of the SMC Spirit Team for 4 years, serving as the Spriti Team Captain for 2 years.  While on the team, she represented her school as a performer at the WCC Basketball Tournament and the NCAA March Madness Championships.  Cassandra is a graduate of Saint Mary's College of California with a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology & Performing Arts: Dance.
