Cassandra Surianello grew up in Buffalo, Ny where she began dancing at the age of 2 studying ballet, jazz, contemporary, modern, tap and acro/gymnastics. As her love and passion for dance grew she decided to further her dance education by attending Point Park University in Pittsburgh, Pa where she is on track to receive her B.F.A in dance May 2016. To further her training Cassandra has also trained with prestigious programs such as The San Francisco Conservatory of Dance, Alonzo King Lines Contemporary Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, River North Dance Chicago, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, and Visceral Dance Chicago.
