At age 15, Sharna was chosen to represent Australia at the World Championships in both the Standard and Latin styles, and performed in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games closing ceremony.

Following Sharna's competitive career, she moved to London and continued to collect numerous titles around the globe and appeared in a UK tour with the theater show, "Simply Ballroom." Shortly after, she was scooped up to dance on the hit dance sensation, "Burn the Floor." She was in the cast for 6 years and traveled to over 30 countries and 160 cities worldwide. Sharna had the opportunity to fulfill her childhood dream of dancing on Broadway, and to top it off she was a lead dancer.



Upon her departure from the theater, Sharna quickly made the transition to film and television. She has made guest appearances on "Dancing with the Stars Australia" and "So You Think You Can Dance Holland." She has worked with A-list choreographers to fuse the Hip Hop and Latin to create a whole new style and even choreographed on the feature film, "Street Dance 2 – 3D."
