Sharna Burgess is one of the professional dancers featured on ABC's ballroom competition "Dancing with the Stars." She danced with the DWTS Troupe though for three seasons, before making her series debut as a competitor in Season 16 with celebrity dance partner Andy Dick, coming in seventh place overall. For Season 17, she is paired with Keyshawn Johnson. It is such a thrill for her to choreograph, create and perform.

Sharna Burgess grew up in Australia and has always had a love for dance and entertainment. At the age of 5, she began training in Ballet, Jazz and gymnastics. When she turned 8 her study of Ballroom began and went on to win many local and national titles. 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. This was an honor and a memory she will never forget.

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."
