Professional ballroom dancer Kym Johnson certainly knows a thing or two about taking to the Dancing with the Stars stage.
Appearing on the show during its first series in 2004, the following year Kym took home the mirror ball trophy with her celebrity partner Tom Williams. In 2006 Kym set off to Hollywood to compete on the US version of Dancing with the Stars where she has since appeared in 14 series and won twice.
Kym started learning the art of dance at the age of three, training in all aspects of performing including singing, ballet, tap, jazz and acrobatics. At 13, she was inspired to concentrate her talent in the field of competitive ballroom dance.
She went on to become the Australian Ballroom Champion and represented Australia in the ‘World 10’ Dance Championships for two years running. Before appearing on Dancing with the Stars in Australia, Kym appeared in the hit show Burn The Floor.Since moving to Los Angeles, Kym’s celebrity partners have included talk show host Jerry Springer, ‘N Sync performer Joey Fatone and actors David Arquette and David Hasselhoff. In 2009 she took home the mirror ball crown with entertainer Donny Osmond and followed up the win with another in 2011 with sports star Hines Ward. Kym is the only professional dancer in the world to hold trophies in two different continents.
