Another show that I forgot to mention that I am looking forward to is Dancing with the Stars All-Star Season with one of my favorite Pros Cheryl Burke. This season Cheryl is paired up with her previous partner, Emmit Smith (they won DWTS previously in Season 3). Although I was hoping she would be paired with her Season 2 winner, Drew Lachey. Here is more background on Ms.Burke.
Cheryl is multi-racial (Her dad is Russian Irish and her mom is Filipino). She grew up in the San Francisco Bay area where she took ballet classes at four before turning to ballroom dancing. Cheryl began training in ballroom and latin dancing and started competing at age 13. Aside from mirror ball trophies, Cheryl was a World Cup Professional Rising Star Latin Champion in 2005. In 2007, she recieved the Role Model Award at 7th annual Filipino/American Library Gala. A year later, Cheryl won an Asian Excellence Award for Favorite TV Personality.
Cheryl believes that dancing gives her an opportunity to express her inner feelings and passions while maintaining focus and composure during extremely high pressure situations.
