Cha Cha Dance Company

On the 26th of February, we were joined in studio with the flamboyant and down to earth Sasha who owns the Cha Cha Dance Company. Hailing from Grassy Park, Sasha started her dance school approximately 2 years ago. By using dance competitions and workshops, she generated enough capital to start the dance school.

Dancing since the age of 5, Sasha's life has revolved around being on the dance floor competing and she says that dancing is all she knows. As soon as she became a senior dancer, she started teaching others on her own when the instructors weren't present. Trained in Hip Hop, Contemporary, etc, Sasha wishes to teach more than those two dance forms in future. Being a UCT graduate in Dance, she has 3 other teachers and 20 students at her studio.

Sasha takes children from the age of four, and would push to get a 3 year old only if they are able to concentrate for a full class. They had it tough teaching the children about rhythm and remember steps. Sasha works a 9 to 5 but still has time to give back to the community by teaching the children.

A studio with a space for parents to sit and enjoy watching their children perform and practice their routines is what Sasha ideally would like in the near future. The Cha Cha dance company will be hosting their mid-year show, in collaboration with 2 other dance schools. Anyone who would like to get in  contact with Cha Cha Dance Company can do so via Facebook: Cha Cha Dance Company. They are also on Instagram: Cha Cha Connect. Lastly, you can also reach them on their email address, which is

Sasha hopes to get more disciplined students in at her studio to teach as it makes her job much easier. She also hopes to make Cape Town aware of how important dance is and for people to take it serious.
