With over twenty-five years of dancing experience and several championship titles under her belt, twice Emmy nominated professional dancer Cheryl Burke first discovered her love of dance at the age of 4 taking ballet lessons and performing throughout the San Francisco Bay area of California. At age 20 Cheryl rocketed to stardom as the star of ABC’s surprise hit television show, Dancing with the Stars becoming champion twice, with NFL superstar Emmitt Smith and 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey.
In 2015, Cheryl starred alongside Joe Jonas, Ciara, Nicole Scherzinger, and Marlon Wayans in NBC’s I Can Do That, a variety show that challenged celebrities to live outside their comfort zones. In 2020, Cheryl teamed with Backstreet Boys superstar and former DWTS partner AJ McLean to host the iHeart Radio produced podcast, Pretty Messed Up. Cheryl currently has her own podcast, Burke in the Game with the streaming giant and top podcast producing company, iHeartRadio.
In the spring of 2008 Cheryl opened her first of several dance studios, the highly successful Cheryl Burke Dance. In early 2011 Cheryl’s biography Dancing Lessons: How I Found Passion and Potential on the Dance Floor and in Life was released. The book addresses topics that shaped Cheryl throughout her life from the childhood abuse and abusive relationships she lived through to harsh criticisms of her weight and body in her early twenties.
