With MBE, Cheryl is “On the R.O.A.D,” eager to learn, teach these forms of dance to the youth and adults as part of their culture, and collaborate with the Afro-centric communities on the majestic dance and music history of the African Diaspora.
Cheryl is the chief architect and choreographer of MixedBlood Entertainment’s Theatrical Dance. In her childhood and youth, she studied ballet, piano, gymnastics, and figure skating. As a career, she pursued her interest in accounting, business administration, events and project management. She has
worked with independent artists, small
businesses, non-profit charitable organizations, in film and video
productions. On a quest to pursue her passion for dance and the entertainment arts, Cheryl started Lindy Hop (Swing)
dance in March 2000. After learning that this form of dance was created by African-Americans, she has been relentless in her
historical research and teaching of early afro-centric dance styles. She has had the honour to meet and study with
international Lindy Hop, Tap, Jazz, and music Masters Frankie Manning, Norma Miller, Chester Whitmore, Chazz Young,
Skip Cunningham, Jeni LeGon, Dawn Hampton, Sugar Sullivan and Barbara Billups, as well as, their students Paulette Brockington, Ron Parker, Steven Mitchell and others. Cheryl has choreographed for and performed on local, provincial and international stages.
