92 ~ Inspirational Warrior! Cassie Mayo

Cassie Mayo is the Founder and Head Coach of OST. She has trained for the past 12 years under Boston Ballet a Alvin Ailey Professional and 30 year Studio Owner Karen Brown. She has been dancing since she was 6 years old, and helping out with classes since she was 8 years old. She taught her first class in 2010 and has been teaching for 5 years, coaching for 3 years, and running OST for the second year in a row. Cassie was training with the hopes of a pre-professional career until she was diagnosed with RSD/CRPS. She has been battling that for the past 5 years in 80% of her body. She has overcome all the odds, but because of all the injuries and treatments, she was not able to continue with her career. This past year was quite a year. Thankfully she started coaching and is using her knowledge and continuing to grow in the field of Dance Medicine and Exercise Science. She also runs RSD/CRPS 4 a Cure, which she founded in 2012. Cassie is a public speaker and goes around to schools and churches sharing her story, and raising awareness for this commonly unknown disease.  Off Season Training Audition for Off Season Training RSD/CRPS 4 a Cure Cassie's Vlog Balancing Pointe website Balancing Pointe website Balancing Pointe Facebook Twitter - Balancing Pointe
