Cassie Plumridge - Owner/Director

A proud Seminole Heights resident, Cassie has dedicated her life to the performing arts and entertainment industry. She could dance before she could walk, and wasted no time starting her dance education at the age of 2.  By the time she had graduated high school, she had completed the Dance Teacher Training Association program, certified to teach Jazz, Tap & Ballet to all ages, with several years of teaching under her belt. 

Her passion for dance continued to drive her goals in college and beyond. For almost a decade she performed, created and directed various entertainment projects at Busch Gardens Tampa.  It even took her all the way to the high seas as an Entertainment Production Manager and Stage Manager, overseeing the theater department onboard Norwegian Cruise Line. 

The experience she has with dancers and performers of every level and age allows Cassie to fully understand your dance journey. Whether it's a fun after school activity, or you want to pursue a career,  Cassie is ready to help guide you through it.  

Cassie’s energy and positivity is infectious and there’s nothing she loves more than inspiring people to be their best. Cassie is committed to providing open and honest communication with all parents and students to ensure they have the best experience possible at New Heights Dance Academy.
