Peta Murgatroyd from "Dancing with the Stars" is one of the professional dancers on the ABC ballroom competition series. For season 16, she partners with reality show star Sean Lowe.

Murgatroyd had a rough start in her series debut with NBA player Ron Artest in Season 13, when they were the first pair eliminated. She more than recovered the following season though, when she and NFL player Donald Driver were the winners! For season 15, she teamed up with actor and model Gilles Marini and came in sixth place overall.

Peta Murgatroyd was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and raised in Perth, Western Australia. She studied classical ballet from the age of four and trained for 12 years under former principal dancer of the Kirov Ballet, Madame Lubov Nikonorenko.

Peta became the Australian State Champion within three months of beginning ballroom training. She has competed around the world, placing 2nd in the Great World City Championships, was a semi-finalist in the Lion City Championships in Singapore and was a finalist in the Australian Open Championships. She placed 3rd in the world at the British Youth Latin Championships in Blackpool 2006.



In 2004, Peta was chosen to be a cast member of Burn the Floor, which has sold in excess of 4 million tickets in over 30 countries and 160 cities worldwide. She toured the world with them for six years. Burn the Floor then landed on Broadway in August 2009, where Peta was the lead female dancer.

After achieving her lifelong goal of being on Broadway, Peta ended her run with the production in January 2010 to pursue a career in film and television in Los Angeles.
