Cassandra Fox is a multi-award winning professional Belly Dancer and Caribbean fusion dancer from Coldwater, Ontario. She began belly dancing in 2008 while studying Nutritional and Nutraceutical Sciences at the University of Guelph, and eventually merged her love of belly dance with her Jamaican heritage to develop her Caribbean fusion style which blends Caribbean music and movement with belly dance movement.
Beyond her Caribbean fusion, Cassandra is also known for her strong presence, powerful technique, and animated style of belly dance. Best known for her drum solos, her most viewed drum solo video has over 121 million views on Facebook. She has taught and performed throughout Canada, the US, and Europe.
When not dancing Cassandra enjoys tea, cats, crocheting, sewing, fabric hoarding, loves horses, and her boyfriend too!
