her love for entertainment and dance was evident from a very young age.Always singing into a
hairbrush, and making relatives sit to watch her latest choreography.
At 5 years of age, Sharna began training in Ballet, Jazz and gymnastics. By 8 she had started Ballroom,
where she went on to win many local and national titles in her first few years. 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 Olympic Games closing ceremony. An honour and a memory she will never
forget.After living in London for 2 years following her competitive career, collecting numerous titles around
the globe and appearing in a UK tour with the theatre show Simply Ballroom, she was picked up in
2006 by choreographer Jason Gilkison to go on tour with the hit dance sensation Burn The Floor. A
show that has sold in excess of 4 million tickets in over 30 countries and 160 cities worldwide and
toured the world with them for 6 years. In that time she did guest appearances on Dancing with the
Stars Australia, Dancing With The Stars USA, So You Think You Can Dance Holland, and was theassistant choreographer to Jason Gilkison for So You Think You Can Dance USA and Australia for

Burn The Floor and moved from the theatre world to the film industry, where she choreographed for
Street Dance 2 3D, set to be released in Europe March 2012. Here she not onlychoreographed some of

style.Sharna is now currently living in Los Angeles, and working on the #1 ABC show Dancing with the
Stars, as a dancer and choreographer. She is also working towards a career in TV and Film through
