Cassaundra Spargur About Me

Hi! My name is Cassaundra Spargur, owner and instructor of Precision Dancesport.

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 & Latin and 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.

About the location:

As an independent contractor, I primarily rent space from The Shapiro Ballroom 1612 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60622. This facility boasts 2 large ballroom floors and monthly practice passes are available. It’s a beautiful location that’s close to public transportation and plenty of parking!
