Meet Our Team


Cassandra Bair

Cassandra Bair

Director/ Teacher

Cassandra Bair is the Director Extraordinnaire of Blessed Feet Dance, as well as an instructor of many styles, including all levels of ballet and jazz.

Read More

She started training at five years old, and danced with several companies throughout her early years, including Set Apart Dance and the award winning Xcalibur Dance Team at Carlsbad High School. She graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Minor in Leadership, ready to run the world.   She started Blessed Feet Dance in 2008, driven by a love of the fact that dance can transcend culture. Ministering through the arts, whether by putting on a dance show where friends and family encounter the love of the father in a new way, or dancing on the streets of Brazil to tell a story of redemption, Cassie draws on her ultimate inspiration: Jesus! She has directed and choreographed the studio’s annual dance show utilizing her remarkable powers of organization and event coordination. Seeing her in action is like watching a tornado that, instead of ruining stuff, schedules, organizes, designs, directs, teaches, and generally makes things better wherever it goes. Miss Cassie can often be seen snuggling and/or instagramming her sweet baby daughter, searching for her keys, drinking her favorite from Better Buzz coffee, or telling people they are awesome.
 
Camille Arnold

Camille Arnold

Teacher

Camille Arnold, experts believe, is not entirely human. She is comprised of at least 4% Starbucks… possibly more.

Read More

Scientists would like to determine how much more, but she never stops moving, so they’ve had a hard time getting a DNA sample for definitive evidence. For now we can all agree there’s a lot of Starbucks in the mix. It makes sense; how else could she tackle and excel in so many dance styles in just seven years of study? Camille teaches many of Blessed Feet’s most technical classes, including ballet, jazz, hip-hop and tap, and her skill is only growing! She is working toward her degree in dance and liberal studies, with hopes of transferring to a university after completing Mira Costa, as well as teaching more dance at the YMCA and participating in competitions. Miss Cami (as the kids call her) loves her family, pursuing more intimacy with the Lord, being famous, barbecue ribs with fries, inspiring young girls to realize their value, and watching Netflix. (Oh, and Starbucks.)
Jennifer Bowman

Jennifer Bowman

Teacher

Jennifer Bowman is Blessed Feet Dance’s resident tumbling and gymnastics master. Remember Kerri Strug in the 1996 Olympics? Yeah, she’s kinda like that!

Read More

She is USAG certified in coaching preschool gymnastics and elementary school aged recreational gymnastics, and with many years experience in both recreational and competitive gymnastics, as well as four years coaching gymnastics, she brings a great atmosphere of learning many disciplines to her classes. Her sessions focus on strength, balance, agility, flexibility coordination, and body awareness; all of which carry over into every other sport. When asked which was more important, strength or flexibility, she answered: “Gymnastics requires a lot of strength, even down to the muscles in the fingers and toes. Flexibility will help form tremendously, and help prevent injury. Asking me to choose between them is like asking me to choose between milkshakes and cupcakes. I can’t do it!”  Miss Jenn adores her family with her whole heart, and loves good food, crossfit, laughing at her own jokes, and being inspired by her students
Ben Fogelstrom

Ben Fogelstrom

Benjamin Foglestrom fell off of a delivery truck as an infant, on a bumpy backroad in Madagascar, and as a result was raised by lemurs.

Read More

It was these very same lemurs who taught him to breakdance, which is why he’s so good at it. Therefore he was the perfect candidate to teach all the breakdancing sessions at Blessed Feet Dance. Little known-fact: he consulted on the making of the film Madagascar because of his history there, and his favorite song is “I Like to Move-It Move-It.”Truthfully, Ben is an accomplished instructor who has been dancing for over fifteen years and teaching for nearly seven years. His styles include a focus in breakdancing, with a little pop-and-locking and krumping. He has also taken a few ballet and modern dance courses! Before gaining any training, he practiced wild and crazy spins, flips, and cartwheels, set to the tunes of Michael Jackson’s, “Thriller,” and “Bad,” as well as the Cocktail movie soundtrack… the one with Tom Cruise. Ben loves to travel and dance with mission trips, and has said that he believes the Bible tells us to dance so often because God himself dances over us, whether we express joy or sorrow, pain or laughter, or love and freedom – God moves with us and through us.Mister Ben spends roughly twelve hours per day grooming his mustache. It is the lemur way.
Krisann Gentry

Krisann Gentry

Teacher

Krisann Gentry has been entertaining crowds with her original scripts and choreography for as long as she can remember,

Read More

beginning in backyard summer shows with her sister and cousin as her sometimes-willing cast members. She can remember being a small girl and watching Singing in the Rain, while crying, lamenting that such talent was “so rare in movies nowadays.” So it was natural for her to go into theatre arts, you see. She has trained in (and continues to study) many styles of dance over the years, with extensive history in musical theater performance, swing dance, and ballet, plus a little dipping into jazz, tap, and a short stint in roller disco that did not end well and she would prefer not to talk about, thanks. Miss Krisann has two daughters of her own, and loves to teach all the sweet little ones (and looking forward to teaching the mamas!) at Blessed Feet Dance. When she’s not in the studio, she can be found writing plays, mentoring young authors, editing manuscripts, reading, enjoying all of San Diego county with her family, or napping.
Adria Vey

Adria Vey

Teacher

Adria Vey is, in a word, fabulous. Not only is she an accomplished dancer, with over eleven years in jazz, ballet, hip-hop, tap, lyrical, and musical theatre styles, but she’s also a semi-professional makeup artist.

Read More

Her delightfully dry sense of humor, numerous funny faces, and her propensity to sometimes aerobically fall on the dance floor (with a healthy dose of laughing at herself), makes her more fun than a barrel of monkeys to be around. Adria brings a unique eye for training dancers not just in the technicalities of a style, but in calling attention to the facial expressions, attitudes, and emotions which help her students learn that through dance, stories can be told in a compelling way. Adria is inspired by friendship, FroYo, and our studio director, Cassie.
Jutem Stewart

Jutem Stewart

Teacher

Jutem Stewart began dancing at the age of three, and found her passion when she later started specializing in the ballroom genre (which includes waltz, tango, foxtrot, rumba, salsa, and more).

Read More

She became a certified instructor and competitor, and eventually moved to San Diego for a dance partnership, diving deeper into the competitive world, and working at Champion Ballroom under the tutuledge of Mary Murphy and her infamous Hot Tamale Train (check out old episodes of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance if you need to know what this is!).

Jutem has enjoyed quite a bit of travel, on and off the dance circuit, all around the world. Even though she has now retired from competing, she knows her experiences have prepared her to be a better teacher. “Dance is all about the journey, and anyone can learn,” is one of her many mottos, and strong beliefs.

Jutem has three children and dance is now a side note, but still a passion, along with some other hobbies and pastimes creating a very full life: modeling, pageantry, sales, theater, thespian society, public speaking, and creating a non-toxic kitchen.

“I hope I’m part of a bigger picture to spread the joy of dancing (a true gift from the Lord) and give the confidence to anyone that dares to just start trying.” -Jutem

Georgeania Burks

Georgeania Burks

Choreographer

If you’ve already been to a Blessed Feet Dance recital, you’re likely familiar with the excellence of the show-stopping tap dance numbers.

Read More

The woman responsible for many of those is none other than Georgeania Burks, or “Miss George,” as we usually call her.  Her keen senses of choreography and creativity are always a big part of the process, welcomed and utilized over the months of it takes to prepare so many great performances.

George has a long history of the love of dance, beginning with her inspirational mother, who was also a dancer, and reaching into her many years of experience in competing, showcases, and productions in many genres–including being one of our director Cassandra’s early dance teachers! The family affair doesn’t stop there! Sometimes you can catch a cameo from George’s husband Chris (also a tap dancer), or one of their adorable two kids who also dance in the company from time to time.
