Cara began dancing at the age of four and joined the TDC family in 1998. She is trained in jazz, ballet, and hip-hop, but her tremendous passion is for tap. Cara was a member of several award-winning competition teams and was recognized as a top tap soloist at numerous competitions. While a team member, she assisted Jimmy Peters creating and perfecting several different solos and competition routines. She has continued in that role, contributing to the studio’s many national award-winning successes across the United States. In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Cara works at the front office managing the projects for our competition teams, and assisting in the day-to-day operations of the studio. Cara attends college at the Wedding Institute, working towards a degree in public relations and a career in the wedding planning industry. Newlywed Cara, and her husband Jacob will be celebrating their first anniversary this August with their much-loved puppy-child, Chloe.
