Cassidy Cocke was born in Dallas, TX, and began dancing at the age of 10 at Dallas Ballet Center under the direction of Brent and Judy Klopfenstein. She trained with Asako Fandrich and Catherine Lewellen during her time there. At the age of 15, she trained under Paul Mejia at Mejia Ballet International until moving to Seattle to join the Professional Division at Pacific Northwest Ballet under artistic director Peter Boal. She then danced as a guest artist at Avant Chamber Ballet in Dallas under the direction of Katie Puder in the 2020-21 season and trained with Michele Gifford before joining Los Angeles Ballet in the fall of 2021.
She attended The School of American Ballet Summer Course in 2014, 2016, and 2017, Pacific Northwest Ballet in 2015 and 2017, and in the summer of 2019, was chosen to attend The National Ballet of Canada on exchange by PNB. Some of her favorite roles she’s performed are Marzipan in The Nutcracker with PNB, Concerto Barocco as a guest artist with ACB, and Bluebird in Sleeping Beauty, Ghosts choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, and the Dream Pas de Deux in Val Caniparoli’s Lady of the Camellias all during her time at LAB.
When she isn’t dancing, Cassidy is currently working at BASIC Magazine and BASIC PR, a quarterly fashion magazine and fashion showroom as the assistant to the Editor-in-Chief and Showroom Coordinator. She enjoys spending time with her friends and family, and her crazy orange cat, Edgar. Cassidy is honored to be a part of Los Angeles Ballet, and can’t wait to see what her future holds.
