Born Cheryl Stephanie Burke on May 3, 1984, in San Francisco, CA, she began dancing ballet at age 4 and switched to ballroom dancing at age 11. She started to compete professionally only two years later and went on to win multiple world dance championships.

Cheryl has served as a professional partner on Dancing with the Stars since Season 2, although she took a break from Seasons 20-22 as well as Season 24.

She won two mirrorball trophies during her run on the ABC reality dancing competition -- Season 2 with singer Drew Lachey and Season 3 with retired NFL player Emmit Smith.

Cheryl is currently partnered with former NFL football wide receiver and six-time Pro Bowler Terrell Owens on Dancing with the Stars' 25th edition this fall. Curious to learn more about her?

- Cheryl made her TV acting debut in an episode of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody on the Disney Channel.

- Her autobiography Dancing Lessons: How I Found Passion and Potential on the Dance Floor and in Life was released in 2011 and documented very personal details, including how her family's handyman had molested her at age five. (The man was sentenced to 22 years in prison.)
