After growing up competing and performing in ballroom dance, cheerleading and gymnastics, Casey found west coast swing in 2006, along with the DC dance community and her eventual partner Dave. In 2010 she graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County with a BS in Biology, and in 2015 she graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a PhD in Biochemistry. These days she conducts scientific research, authors papers, and teaches for the National Institutes of Health. Her role in Dance Jam Productions has evolved along with her skills and interests, allowing her to support the team with data management, documentation, and graphic design expertise.
On Friday nights, Dave and Casey (and Lucy!) co-host the largest weekly west coast swing party in the world at Hollywood Ballroom in Silver Spring, Maryland.
