DJ and MC
Event MC: **We are excited to welcome a new face to the microphone for our inaugural Lil’ Rhody Big Swing Out! Cassie Fillios of Boston Lindy Hop.
Cassie Filios is a dancer, teacher, organizer, and occasional dinner party host living in Boston, MA. In 2013 casual grooving in the kitchen wasn’t enough and she started taking Lindy Hop classes — she hasn’t stopped dancing since. As an emcee she likes to focus on fun and community and hopes that everyone leaves feeling like they had a lot of both.
