She has also choreographed North Plainfield’s nonprofit children’s theatre group for the past five years. “I always taught. When I was doing summer stock — Dreams Girls, Chorus Line, 42nd Street–up and down the East Coast from 1982 to 1987, intermittently, I would teach in whatever town I was in.

I understood the commitment and sacrifices these minority kids made to the performing arts.” Sherri has now expanding beyond her Plainfield home to open studios in Fanwood and Westfield, NJ
