  • A great way to pump up the dance floor, is to have The Cassettes on it.

  • I am having so much fun dancing with you and the Mix Tape Crew again this term.  You and your team have really created something special for the dance queen/ king in us all.

  • That class was an absolute joy!  Thank you for the work you put into making it so special.

  • I really love the vibe of positivity and community you’ve created at The Cassettes.  I love coming every week and even if I haven’t had the best day, by the time I get to class I feel so much better, and then after class, on top of the world!  It’s an awesome sweaty workout too, but the best part for me is the people, the music and the funky, entertaining dance moves!  Such a fun way to have some ‘me time’ and get some exercise!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  • I feel so blessed to be able to do a dance class with you and all the gorgeous women there.  Thanks Marissa, for the great dance class and your beautiful encouraging words.

  • I’m having a blast.

  • I loved the (Cassettes Contemporary) class today!  It was so invigorating and exciting.  Please do more again soon!

  • Thanks for such an amazing class Marissa.  Your classes feel like flying.

  • I just love The Cassettes dance classes.  They are part self-help; part dance; part entertainment.  A complete mind, body and soul experience that has me laughing the whole way through!

    It’s Raining Cassettes

    In its passivity and resignation, cynicism is a hardening, a calcification of the soul.  Hope is a stretching of its ligaments, a limber reach for something greater.  – Maria Popova We make a literal “limber reach for something greater” in every single class at The Cassettes’ Mix Tapes. When I deliberately pull my face and…
