Ms. Cheryl

Dance Instructor

Cheryl Okuda began her dance training at the age of seven and has trained in ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, modern, pointe, musical theater, and hip-hop.

Cheryl has earned many awards for her dancing and choreography in several Midwest Competitions throughout the Chicagoland area. She has a minor in dance from Columbia College and was a proud first generation company member of  Boom Crack! Dance Company.

Cheryl has performed and competed in many dance shows including Prelude, World of Dance, Carnival Choreographerʼs Ball, and Hip Hop International. While dance and choreography will always be a passion of hers and something she continues to develop, teaching is Cherylʼs true calling. In addition to teaching dance, Cheryl holds a degree in Early Childhood Education and has been a preschool teacher for almost 10 years. When she’s not creating or teaching, she takes care of her son Ronin and hopes to inspire his love of dance.
