With over 20 years of dancing experience and several championship titles under her belt, Emmy nominated professional dancer Cheryl Burke, has tangoed and sambaed her way into the hearts of millions through the hit ABC television show Dancing with the Stars.

Bay area native, Cheryl first began dancing at the age of six, taking ballet lessons and performing throughout the Bay Area. At 10, she discovered what would be her winning talent, ballroom dancing, and decided to hang up her ballet shoes to begin training in both Standard and Latin ballroom dancing. By the age of 13, Cheryl was traveling and competing throughout the world.

Burke has used her appearance on Dancing with the Stars as a stepping-stone to propel her career into different avenues. In the spring of 2008 Cheryl opened her first dance studio, the highly successful Cheryl Burke Dance, which is located in Mountain View, CA. In early 2011 Cheryl’s biography Dancing Lessons: How I Found Passion and Potential on the Dance Floor and in Life was released.

Initially, Cheryl was scouted by ABC reps at a dance competition and was recruited to be the professional dance partner for dancing novice Drew Lachey. Now countless doors have opened for her with guest performer public appearances, talk show appearances, and several exclusive Hollywood events. She has even dabbled with acting playing the role of a bespectacled awkward and shy nurse who blossoms into a ballroom sensation, on the Disney show, Suite Life with Zack and Cody.

Cheryl has been named one of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful and often appears on Maxim Magazine’s Hot 100 List. In 2010, she made a much talked about appearance in the music video for Ne-Yo’s Camera Phone.

For Cheryl, dancing is a way of life. It provides a medium for her to express her inner feelings and passions all while maintaining focus and composure during extremely high-pressure situations. It is dancing that has made her such a competitor, both on and off the floor, and made her strive for perfection in anything that she sets out to do.
