Cara Benthal

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. Since her graduation from the studio, she has continued in that role, contributing to the studio’s many national award-winning successes across the United States. Cara currently assists with TDC Special Projects throughout the year. Cara is a graduate from The Wedding Institute and is currently the catering manager and wedding coordinator at Temecula Creek Inn. Cara and her husband Jacob celebrated their third anniversary this August with their much-loved puppy-child, Chloe.
