My mom always told me, "find what you love to do, and figure out a way to get paid for it," so becoming a professional performer was the only thing that ever seemed to fit. My performance career began after joining Albany's premiere children's choir, the Capital District Youth Chorale when I was nine. This sparked my love of singing, building community and making a difference through art. Since my days as a chorister, I have been fortunate enough to perform on stages all over the United States, and more recently, Italy. My favorite roles have been Nellie Forbush in South Pacific, Despina in Così fan tutte, and singing as the soprano soloist in
In addition to the arts, my other passion has always been gymnastics. My mom was a competitive gymnast, so it has always been a family sport. My sister and I grew up in the gym and have proudly taken over the title, "gym rats." I began my gymnastics training when I was two years old at D.C. Gymnastics, and moved on to compete and coach at New York State's prestigious World Class Gymnastics Academy, frequently taking winning titles on Floor Exercise. I trained many summers at the International Gymnastics Camp with olympians Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, and Svetlana Boguinskaia. In college, I competed for Temple's Club Gymnastics Team, and thrive on incorporating gymnastics into my life as a performer.
I'm Casie... [Kɛi-si] for my IPA-friendly visitors...
I am a classically trained soprano, actor, and gymnast hailing from Albany, New York, now based out of New York City. I graduated from Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance in 2017 with my Bachelors of Music in Classical Vocal Performance. I am equally as passionate about musical theatre, and have had the pleasure of studying acting with Brandon McShaffrey and Julie Czarnecki, musical theatre with Jeff Coon, and dance through the Boyer College (GO OWLS!)
When I am not performing, I am teaching around 30 private voice and acting students, and conducting three choirs with Sister Cities Girlchoir. I also enjoy traveling, yoga, and working out with my personal trainer.
