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.

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."
