Kasey and John Scheibe


Kasey & John Scheibe are an energetic, often chaotic couple with a relationship that can trace back to the earliest days of rehearsals for Legally Blonde: The Musical – an NMU production that took place on the exact same stage as this competition almost 10 years ago. After becoming engaged on this same stage moments after their NMU graduation in 2015, their respective careers swept them away to New York City for an exhilarating 5 years – and have now recently returned to the Marquette area for the sole purpose of crushing their fellow competitors inside of a theater that they can practically claim ownership of.


Kasey is an accomplished CPA for the State of New York, where she worked in the Broadcast Industry while also pursuing her Master’s Degree in Accounting from Syracuse University. She continues her work today as a fully remote Accounting Manager for SiriusXM (NYC), and as a part-time Instructor for Bay De Noc Community College (MI). Additionally, she’s become an invaluable resource for local entrepreneurs here in Marquette as a Consultant and Virtual CFO through her own business venture; Count on Kasey. She balances her intense love of numbers with a passion for the arts as the Color Guard Instructor for the NMU Marching Band and as a Stage Manager within NMU’s latest Theatrical Productions. Don’t mess with this one; she has a legal obligation to keep receipts.


John, on the other hand, is an Award-winning Filmmaker, Photographer and Artist. Founder of Yonder Studio, a film production company new to Marquette just last year, John has been working passionately to help support a viable, collaborative filmmaking industry in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Starting out as an actor during his time in NYC, John’s broad portfolio of creative experiences from over the years means that he’s a uniquely impactful storyteller, and someone that dance competitors should surely keep their eyes on.

Together, Kasey & John are an ambitious pairing ready to have fun, work way too hard… and are immensely proud to be supporting the profound work being done by the U.P. Hospice Foundation in service of our neighbors & communities.
