Born in Arizona, Cherie has always had music and dancing in her blood. Her mother was a Dime-A-Dance dancer in the 40's and danced every chance she got. As a child, Cherie would join her in the living room, dancing to whatever music was playing, letting the music speak to her soul and tell her body what to do. When her mother wasn't available as a dance partner, Cherie would hold on to a doorknob and practice the swing. At 12 she even tried to teach her sister, then 8, how to swing so she could have someone to dance with.

Cherie began her formal dance career at the age of 8 as a tap dancer and performer in San Bernardino, California. She continued her tap dancing, eventually performing with Gotta Dance in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. In her teen years she was organizing dance events and in 1990 she became involved with both line dancing and country couples dancing. Cherie has choreographed many line dances that are popular on the Mainland as well as in Hawaii and Canada. She has performed with the UpCountry Dancers in Waimea, Hawaii and was one of the originators of the Kona Western Dancers in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. She choreographed their line and couples routines and performed with them for six years on the Big Island.

Cherie has not limited her dancing to tap and country; she was also a member of the Kona Ballroom Dance Club, and is currently a member of the Florida USA Dance. She has taught classes and workshops in country couples, line dancing, partner dancing, and ballroom; and has been a member of the National Teachers Association (NTA) since 1993 completing Levels I, II, & III Line Dance Certification. As well as receiving training from visiting instructors in Hawaii, Cherie traveled to the Mainland to take workshops in understanding music, lead and follow, motion and body movement, Night Club Two Step, and West Coast Swing.

Now residing in Casselberry, Florida, she continues to do the thing she loves most to do - dance.

Cherie is a Certified Judge for the IAGLCWDC and has taught and performed at various dance events such as the Saltwater Hoedown in Norfolk, Atlantic Seashore Dance Festival in Williamsburg, Tidewater Classic in Virginia Beach, the Virginia is for Lovers of Dance in Richmond, and the Country Stomp X in Montreal. She has taught workshops and classes in Waltz, West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Night Club Two Step, Two Step, Cha Cha, Rumba, Motion Study and Body Movement, and Lead and Follow. She taught for several years at the American Legion in Newport News and at Bootlegger's Dance Studio in the Grafton/Yorktown area of Virginia with her then dance partner Linus. She is currently an instructor with Dance Orlando in Longwood, Florida and teaches line dancing at Solivita Retirement Center at the University of Central Florida.

Cherie believes that music feeds the soul while dancing feeds the spirit. She is 100% responsible to bring joy and love to the world through music and dance. She believes a desire is an opportunity taping on the door of the consciousness. She dares you to open that door, step through, and feed your soul with music, feed your spirit with dance!

She not only dances, but is also a published writer with numerous articles and poems in The Science of Mind Magazine, Venture Inward [Association for Research and Enlightenment] and various other magazines. Flobird - A Bird's Eye View is her first book.

Cherie plays guitar, loves to travel, ride motorcycles, and is involved in a variety of other activities. She believes age is an illusion and lives life to the fullest wherever she is.
