Sharna Burgess
Sharna May Burgess was born June 21st 1985 and grew up in Australia. Not only was she a tree-climbing tomboy, her fervor and excitement for entertainment and dance was obvious and palpable from a very young age. She would assemble her audience (relatives, family friends, neighbors, unsuspecting visitors), then she would sing and dance for them with an improvised microphone in hand (her hairbrush). They would all sit captivated, and marvel at her latest choreography and creative interpretation of the most popular music. Then they would rise to their feet clapping and demanding an Encore. And she was doing all this before she was a teenager! Sharna began training in ballet, jazz and gymnastics at five years old. By eight she had started Ballroom. Within these first few years, she won numerous local and national titles. At 15, she was chosen to represent Australia at the World Championships in both the Standard and Latin styles. Her accolades and national prominence went on to earn her the distinguished honour of performing in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games closing ceremony, a privilege and a memory she will always cherish.
