Benji's dancing career began a long time ago, as his former boxing instructor took him to Dominican Republic and introduced him to the latin-american dances such as Salsa, Bachata and Merengue. Later on he discovered the angolan Kizomba and developed his skills together with other german "pioneers" at that time.
He has been dedicating himself to teaching, imparting his versatile knowledge to others and awakening fascination for the art of dance for many years. His concept includes teaching the basics precisely, attaching importance for the right techniques combining it with a lot of fun with the purpose of letting the students develop their own style based on the correct fundament. Furthermore he helps advanced dancers find new opportunities to come to the new level and broaden their skill spectrum. Apart from that, thanks to his creative mind he enjoys preparing shows and choreographies from beginners to the advanced level and is available for different kinds of performance and animation. Supporting joy in and feeling for music above all as well as pleasant leading constitutes a big part of his teaching strategy and results in a delightful, welcoming atmosphere in the class regardless of where the students come from - Benji speaks 3 languages fluently and is very open-hearted and internationally oriented.
