Mykal Perea attended El Monte H.S. in Souther Calif. He was my dearest friend and he got his start as a cheerleader practicing in my back yard. I have home movies of us performing together as professional cheerleaders for the United Spirit Association. I believe his last video appearance was in Smooth Criminal with Michale Jackson. Mykal died of TB related to AIDS. He was only 33 years old. I attribute so much of today's cheerleading and dancing from the influence he made on these two national past times. He danced for 6 years with Cher and I believe you can get her Monte Carlo Show in which Mykal danced. His business partner was Kenny Ortega of "Dirty Dancing". His friends, family and fans all miss this incredibly talented individual who left this world after having a profound impact on all who knew him.

I am so sad and shocked about this news. I have often wondered what became of this talented dancer. I have seen him in so many videos and film, that I thought he must be up to something really interesting now. Never did I anticipate this sad news. My deepest prayers go out to the family and his many friends and fans. Huh, I thought I was the only one...This is just too too sad.

I am just finding out about Mr. Perea passing away. He was ALWAYS my favorite dancer of Madonna's and I have to say I had quite the crush on him. I am sorry to know he is no longer with us but I still can watch him on youtube and the fabulous virgin tour and he makes me smile

I recently re-discovered the Virgin Tour video which I owned and watched many times in 1985. Michael Perea's dancing in that show was amazing. He had a wonderful talent and gift that won't stop giving, long after he is gone.
