Come enjoy an evening with stars and help support a healthier San Francisco! On Friday, April 4th, from 5:00 –7:30 pm, join Cheryl Burke of DANCING WITH THE STARS for the Grand Opening of Cheryl Burke Dance, San Francisco’s new premiere ballroom dance studio.
Born in San Francisco and raised in Atherton, Cheryl Burke was twice-nominated for an Emmy in 2006 for “Outstanding Choreography” in freestyle and paso doble. Her partners have included Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith and Ian Ziering. She will return in “Season 6″ with actor Cristian de la Fuente. Ms Burke purchased San Francisco’s Metronome Ballroom (corner of 17th Street and DeHaro), saving it from closure. Proceeds will benefit Mayor Gavin Newsom’s SHAPE UP SAN FRANCISCO Initiative.
