Biographical history

Georgia Kerr was born September 3, 1957 in Edmonton, Alberta. She began her dance training in 1966 with the Etobicoke Board of Recreation in Toronto, Ontario. In 1975, she attended the Royal Academy of Dance Summer Session, and attended the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School Professional Division from 1975-1978. She made her professional debut with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet the day after she joined it as a member of the corps de ballet in April of 1978. Due to back pain, she retired from dancing in 1984 and found work at Desart Ltd, making occasional guest dancer appearance. She married Duane Cheskey and after her retirement, she became an active member of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Alumni Association.
