Instructor, Dancin Jazzi Dance Studio
Cherelle VanBrakle has been dancing since the age of two. She has attended numerous master classes and conventions and has competed and won on both regional and national levels. After winning a scholarship at New York City Dance Alliance, she traveled to New York, NY to study and had the opportunity to perform in their Gala. Cherelle has also studied in Las Angeles with Mia Michaels, Keith Clifton and many others.
In 2005, Cherelle was crowned Ms. Juneteenth of Central Texas. As Miss Juneteenth, she encouraged other young ladies to be confident, aware of their bodies and what they put into them and to be dedicated to their community.
While in College, Cherelle taught dance in Seguin, Texas. Since moving back to Austin, Cherelle has recently earned her Masters of Education in Exercise Science.
Cherelle’s young daughter Rileigh regularly attends class with mommy and graciously shares her mommy with Dancin’ Jazzi. Thanks Rileigh!
We are excited to have Cherelle and Rileigh as a part of the Dancin’ Jazzi family!
