Get To Know The Company



Corps de Ballet

Cassidy Ransom began dancing at the age of 3 at the Georgia Academy of Dance. At 12, she became part of Georgia Dance Theatre's Apprentice Company and joined their Senior Company the following year. During her years with the company, she trained in ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, hip hop, and contemporary dance. 

Throughout high school, she attended summer intensives at Boston Ballet, Charlotte Ballet, and most recently, Richmond Ballet. After graduating high school early, she began working towards an undergraduate degree in Business Management. 

From 2017 to the present, she has performed corps de ballet roles in Romeo and Juliet, La Bayadere, Coppelia, The Sleeping Beauty, Don Quixote, and The Nutcracker. She has also performed soloist and lead roles such as Clara in Waltz of the Flowers, Demi Soloist in Harlequin Doll, and the Ribbon Candy Lead in The Nutcracker. 

The 2022-2023 season will be Cassidy's first season with Ballet Pensacola.

“When dancing I feel like I have been transferred to the world of the story that I am telling. Due to muscle memory, I can focus on portraying my character and enjoying each moment I get to be on the stage. Dance is my joy, my escape, and my whole life. Nothing makes me happier than being able to express myself through dance and I can't imagine who I'd be without it.”
