Casey Venturelli

Schools & Community Programs Coordinator

Casey graduated with honors from Pitzer College with a degree in Dance and Sociology. She has a long history in dance and art education, beginning with her first ballet class at age three. 

This lifelong passion has connected her with training and employment opportunities around the country, including work with State Street Ballet, Boston Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, San Francisco Conservatory of Dance, Circus Smirkus, and community-based programs in her hometown of Santa Barbara, California. She has spent the past three summers on the road with the traveling youth circus, Circus Smirkus, building and breaking down a small city across New England.

Casey is very excited to settle into Brooklyn and to take on the position of School and Community Programs Coordinator at Dancewave, utilizing her background in community outreach and development to increase access to dance education throughout New York City.
