Kassing earned a BFA in ballet and theatre, an MS in modern dance, a PhD in dance and related arts, and an MAT in K-12 curriculum integrated with technology, for which she completed a multimedia history of dance technology project. Her dissertation was one of the first historical dance studies written. Selected as one of 10 national scholars, she participated in Selma Jeanne Cohen’s seminar, Dance in America Before 1900. She is a National Dance Association (NDA) member and past board member, and she served as director of NDA publications for two terms.
