    Jak-Hamah, aka Chanan Lareche, has been dancing all his life and has always been interested in the hip-hop culture. He learned "Stepping" in college and was apart the school Step- Team. At the end of his college career, he was co-founder of the Hott Sawse Dance Crew, and realized at the same time a desire to have intense dance training.
    Chanan has choreographed for recording artists and has been to multiple countries such as Italy, Greece and others to teach dance, and also made it to the semi-finals of Juste Debout '11 and won Funkin' Stylez Finland '12. Although he considers himself a continuous dance student, he wants to teach and give back to street dance what it gave to him.
