Sasha Benjamin started her first dance class at the age of 5 years old and is now fully trained in contemporary and African dance. She also trained and competed in Hip Hop and Latin American dance. She has a history of teaching at Silver leaf Dance School, Dance Craft, Montagues Gift Primary and DF Malan High School, theatre productions and partaking in some music videos. She has also been afforded the opportunity to teach and dance at
Hot stepper Denmark and sports club Sarpsborg, Norway.
At the age of 15, Sasha started her own Hip Hop crew during High School. This was the start of her ambition to opening her own dance school. Today she is a qualified dancer teacher (UCT dance teachers’ diploma). She started her own dance company in February 2017 and is also working full time in the Shipping industry. As an upcoming entrepreneur, Sasha has managed to grow this establishment into what it is today, due to hard work, determination and with the love and support of her family and friends, dancers and students.
The Cha Cha Dance Company is not only a business but a true passion in every sense of the word. Even though the dance school is new to the scene, we don’t only strive to be the best but to have a positive influence and impact on our society through our interpretation of dance.
