For Season 15, she was partnered with Emmitt Smith, who was the winner of Season 3. They finished in 4th place.

Growing up in San Francisco, California, Burke came from a family who all loved to dance. At four years old, she began taking ballet lessons and performed throughout the Bay area until she was ten. It was at that time that she discovered that ballroom, "wasn't just for old people" and decided to change her focus. She hung up her ballet shoes and began training in both standard and Latin. By the age of 13, she was traveling and competing throughout the world, later moving on to win several championships.

In the spring of 2008 she opened her first dance studio, the highly successful Cheryl Burke Dance, in San Francisco.
