Chané Otto hails from sleepy Sedgefield on the Garden Route. Having started dancing at the tender age of 7, she was drawn to the bright lights of the Mother City in 2010, where she began to set about pursuing her lifelong performing dreams, taking up a course of study at the prestigious Cape Academy of Performing Arts. During her three years at CAPA, Chané performed various lead and ensemble roles in a range of dance and theatre productions at the Masque Theatre in Muizenburg, the Grahamstown National Arts Festival and at Artscape Theatre in Cape Town.
Having graduated from CAPA with a distinction in the bag in December 2012, Chané hit the road in mid-2013, touring South Africa with ‘Arepp: theatre for life’, an educational children’s theatre production. She will be gracing the screens later this year in a cameo performance role in the Kyknet series production “Die Byl”. Last year she performed in Rockville 2069, a brand new musical and came on board with the Line and Light Dance Collective as a dancer and choreographer. Aside from her stage training, Chané sings and plays guitar.
