Elizabeth Perry grew up where they do everything big, in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas. Her favorite things in the world were tap, ballet, jazz, and of course, CHEERLEADING. She began teaching dance at the young age of 16 and became a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader at a mere 20 years old. She graduated from college with a theatre degree from the University of North Texas in 2000.
Upon graduation, Elizabeth moved to Los Angeles where she has worked in all facets of the entertainment industry. She has worked as an entertainment news reporter interviewing celebrities such as Andy Garcia and John Belushi on the red carpet for a news magazine shown in “The Cutz.” She had several small breaks into prime time including a guest star role on the long running television series “Las Vegas.” She can be seen doing prenatal yoga in the hilarious music video “She's Gotta Bump.” Last year she and her son Max participated in a national baby bullet food processor campaign when he was only seven months old.
Whether she was working as a host, an actor, or a dancer, her background in cheerleading always seemed to help her land job after job. Employers absolutely love to talk about her experience as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and what it was like to be one of America's Sweethearts.
Things changed once Elizabeth became a mother to her precious son Max in February 2010. Her primary focus shifted from work over to natural parenting and healthy living. Yoga helped her get through pregnancy and she wanted to set a good example for her son as well as share her love of yoga with the world. So naturally, she began teaching!
That has led to her latest job working on the ABC show Glass House as their yoga instructor. This show is completely original in the sense that the audience gets to vote on what they house guests do.
If you want to see Elizabeth back inside the Glass House, log in and vote for her to bring her cheer back inside the house.
Elizabeth currently teaches yoga at Laughing Frog Yoga in West Los Angeles, The Birth Sanctuary in Los Angeles, and Earth's Power Yoga in West Hollywood.
