So much more than a dance class:
Hi I’m Marissa (Riss)!
BA Dance, Visual Art, Creative Writing, Grad Dip Ed.
Welcome to The Cassettes, and Rad Self Care.
We love the 80s (obviously!), the fun of dance, but especially love seeing women shine as they shed their worries, and enter a playful, empowering headspace. The positive life-ripples are many.
The magic happens through our in-person classes, and in Rad Self Care: our sparkly live-online version of The Cassettes.
What we’re about
Marissa and The Cassettes are honoured to help people feel more empowered, happy, energised and free, connected to each other and themselves, joyful, amused and embodied. Cassette classes are authentic, fun, professional, warm, creative and led with integrity and care.
The Cassettes classes cater for women of all ages, including beginner to advanced dancers who are sensitive, possess a (possibly hidden!) playful and creative spirit, and a grounded and mature outlook: you really can have it all!
With top notch teaching by Vicki Lawrence and Marissa Treichel, and assisted by the shimmery Juz Grantham, Rohini Drury and Ruth Walker, The Cassettes feature the best adult dance students eva.
We heart diversity and celebrate all movers, of all age, sexuality, shape and colour. Together, we create an amazing vibe!
Featuring Byron Shire’s original Flashmob Dance Company, Mix Tape 80s Dance Classes, super-special contemporary dance classes, festival dance workshops and Flashmob shows, The Cassettes classes currently rock out in Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Bangalow and online.
Cassette Dance Classes and Workshops include Modern Dance, Contemporary, Jazz and Ballet dance styles, dance-theatre and games, dynamic flying dance, and beautiful self-realising Cassette activities.
Our classes are immaculately planned and snazzily facilitated.
The Cassettes is also home to the Flashmob Dance Company. Distinctively bright, bold, kooky and yet coordinated, the Flash mob Dance Company have rocked festivals and special events along the East Coast of Australia for the past seven years.
