Reared primarily in Chicago, Berresse's father was an engineer and his mother was an artist and writer.

That fall, he was offered a year-long contract with Disney and accepted it, putting off college indefinitely. He spent several years touring with Disney, dancing in shows around the world. In 1992, he appeared on Star Search in a dance group called "The Boys Back East", winning the title of Best New Dance Group and a shared prize of $100,000.
