Desirea was born in Pennsylvania but grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina where she began jazz dancing at age 4 and cheerleading and gymnastics by age 5. As she grew older her interest turned to hip hop, which at the time was called "street jazz." She danced at Dance Creations in Raleigh through her senior year and also attended Gym Carolina and Raleigh School of Gymnastics. Desirea cheered for many little league football teams through middle school and continued cheerleading at CATS in high school. She is currently a senior at UNC Charlotte where she is majoring in Health Communication. Desirea has always had a passion for dance along with a beaming personality which she is eager to share with our students.
