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. Miss Cassie 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 which, 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 two beautiful daughters, searching for her keys, drinking her favorite beverage from Better Buzz coffee, or telling people they are awesome. 
Krisann Gentry

Krisann Gentry

Assistant Director/Theatre Arts Director/Teacher

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

 beginning in backyard summer shows with her sister and cousin as her sometimes-willing castmates. She can recall 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, with extensive history in musical theater performance, swing dance, and ballet, and all aspects of live performance production, 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 and a sweet son of her own, and loves to teach all ages. When she’s not in the studio, she can be found writing plays, coaching theatre competition groups, mentoring young authors, editing manuscripts, reading, enjoying travel with her family, or napping. 
Georgeania Burks

Georgeania Burks

Teacher/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.

Andrea Foreman

Andrea Foreman

Teacher

Mrs. Drea first began dancing when she was a little girl at 6, and has never stopped learning and taking classes to this day!

Read More

Over the years she has studied many disciplines, including cheer, gymnastics, jazz, lyrical, and tap, with classical ballet being her very favorite. But she doesn’t stop there! She also enjoys distance running and outdoor exploration adventures with her family. Mrs. Drea teachers all her students dance is awesome because it builds strength, confidence, friendships, and allows us to express the joy in our hearts! If you need a prime example of this, just watch the adorable Jolly Holiday penguin dance from Mary Poppins. It’s Mrs. Drea’s favorite! 

Ben Fogelstrom

Ben Fogelstrom

Teacher

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.

as well as studying human behavior and the brain. She has been dancing the past fourteen years and continues to pursue her education in Clinical Neuropsychology while teaching and working out. You should ask her to flex sometime! Miss Tori loves pizza, her parents, dancing as a way to unwind, and her kitty, Rosie. 

Christa Grau

Christa Grau

Teacher

Miss Christa began her career in fitness education more than three years ago, after enjoying various tumbling and dance classes in her own childhood.

She is a wonder in flexibility–her many years of yoga training have helped her learn incredible poses and even develop a few of her own; watch for them making appearances in showstopping numbers! In her time not teaching at various studios, she loves being outdoors with her family and neatly folding fitted sheets with her magic technique.
