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. 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 recently graduated from The Wedding Institute in Summer 2015 and is currently a wedding coordinator at Pala Mesa Resort. Cara and her husband Jacob will be celebrating their second anniversary this August with their much-loved puppy-child, Chloe.
