Adrianne Cherry

Adrianne began dancing when she was six years old, competing and taking classes in Jazz, Tap and Ballet. After high school she began to discover her own style of choreography, dancing and choreographing at Las Positas College.

After Las Positas, Adrianne went on to San Jose State to receive her Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism with minors in business and dance.

At San Jose State she discovered her love for modern dance and the artistic expression involved in choreography.

Eager to pursue her passion for dance, she applied to Mill’s College for a Masters of Fine Arts in Choreography and Performance.

During her time at Mills, Adrianne had the opportunity to work with award winning faculty as well as taking master classes from choreographers from around the world. Upon graduation Adrianne received the E. L. Weigand Foundation Award for Excellence in Choreography and Performance.

She has been teaching her own Contemporary Modern choreography to adults for the last ten years, through college and outside projects, and has been teaching kids in studios the last six years in Contemporary, Ballet, Jazz, and Lyrical. Adrianne continues to take technique classes and intensives to better improve her own technique and strives to provide an exciting and challenging class for those she teaches.
