Bay area native, Cheryl first began dancing at the age of four, 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, later moving on to win several championships including 2005 Ohio Star Ball Rising Star Champion, 2005 San Francisco Open Latin Champion, 2005 World Cup Professional Rising Star Latin Champion, several UK Championships, and a fourth place showing in the U.S. "Under 21's" division.

With over 17 years dancing experience and several championship titles under her belt, professional dancer Cheryl Burke, has tangoed and sambaed her way into the hearts of millions through Dancing with the Stars and recently became the show's only professional dancer to appear in the finals three times, becoming champion twice with Emmitt Smith in Season 3 and Drew Lachey in Season 2.

For Cheryl, dancing is a way of life. It provides a medium for her to express her inner feelings and passion all the 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.

In the spring of 2008 Cheryl opened her first dance studio, the highly successful Cheryl Burke Dance, in San Francisco and has plans to open another studio this fall.
