A graduate of the University of Virginia, Cassandra taught Kukuwa Dance Workout® classes throughout her schooling there. She's also a member of Gye Nyame African dance troupe, performing all over the east coast. Cassandra and her mother Kukuwa, the creator and CEO of Kukuwa Dance Workout®, counsel clients through nutrition and exercise to achieve their fitness goals. In 2003, Kukuwa launched her Instructor Training Certification Program which trains all instructors world-wide to teach the trademark patented style of KDW®. To date, she has trained over 200 instructors in the USA, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Cassandra’s dream is to assist her mother with developing and expanding KDW® all over the world to enhance fitness levels and wellness through dance and health education.
