Cassandra and Rachel will seemingly have a bad first impression about each other when they meet at the former's class. A clip from "Glee" season 3 shares more footage with the mean dance teacher, portrayed by Kate Hudson, who criticizes Rachel in front of other students.
"Welcome to NYADA. This is Dance 101. And if you are not suffering from severe body dysmorphia, then you don't want it enough," so Cassandra introduces her class. She then puts a halt to the dancing only to complain about Rachel's stuck-up attitude.
"Glee" will kick off the third season on Thursday, September 13 with "The New Rachel". The episode sees Rachel having a rocky start at NYADA and struggling to please her demanding dance teacher, Cassandra July. She also meets Brody (Dean Geyer), a handsome upperclassman.
Meanwhile, the members of New Directions compete amongst themselves to become the next star of the glee club. During open auditions, a fresh crop of students is introduced, including Marley (Melissa Benoist) and Jake Puckerman (Jacob Artist), Puck's half-brother.
