Cassaundra Spargur About Me

Hi! My name is Cassaundra Spargur, professional ballroom dance instructor and ballroom hair & makeup artist in Chicago, Illinois.

I’ve been a ballroom dance instructor since 1999. Ballroom dancing has allowed me to live, train and compete all over the world. I absolutely love my career and there’s nothing in the world I’d rather do for work.

I have competed professionally in International Standard, International Latin and American Smooth. I’m certified through Silver in American Style. I’ve also enjoyed competing and performing with my students at various competitions and events. My students have ranged in age from 3 to 85 years old. When I started out I specialized in social dancing. I focused on teaching anyone and everyone to dance in any social setting.

After a few years of teaching and performing I shifted my focus to competitive dancing. There I found a new place to challenge and motivate myself and my students. I love helping people find which part of ballroom dance they enjoy most. You can be a social dancer, a performer, a competitor or all of the above! Whatever your goals are, I look forward to helping you achieve them.

Note: If you prefer a male instructor, just ask me! I have many great colleagues with many different specialties. Tell me your goals and I know I can connect you with the right man for the job.
