Cheryl loves leaps and turns and currently teaches lyrical, contemporary, jazz, and ballet. She received her early dance training in competitive jazz, ballet, and musical theater. She thought when dancers turned 18 they either went big (ie Broadway) or went home. Looking for ballroom lessons in preparation for her wedding over a decade ago, she was thrilled to discover the Kirkland Dance Center where “it’s never too late to start dancing.” She was amazed that dancers grow up and become paramedics, corporate attorneys, IT specialists and more.... and this space allowed them to continue their love of dance. Cheryl is also a photographer, painter, and a collage artist, and she spends her working days as a pharmacist.
