Biography

Retrieved from abc.com
Aussie native Kym Johnson is best known as a professional ballroom dancer in the popular favorite TV dance competition show Dancing with the Stars. She first appeared in the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars, where she won her first Mirrorball Trophy with Tom Williams (Australian TV/Radio Presenter) in her second season before she moved to Hollywood to join the U.S. version of the show. She has since been in seventeen seasons of Dancing with the Stars, winning two more times with Donny Osmond and Hines Ward (NFL two-time Super Bowl Champion). Johnson is the only professional dancer in the world to hold Mirrorball Trophies from two different continents.

Johnson learned the art of dance and trained in all forms of the performing arts, including singing, ballet, tap, jazz and acrobatics at the young age of three years old. She then concentrated her talent on the field of competitive ballroom dance and became the Australian Ballroom Champion representing Australia in the "World 10" dance championship for two years running.

When not dancing in the show, she has been in Broadway's dance sensation Burn the Floor, Australia's Celebrity Apprentice, and has been featured as a special correspondent for E! News during DWTS's 10th Season. She is also involved in several fitness DVDs in association with DWTS and hosts the YouTube fitness TV show STARFit.

Johnson finished Season 20 of Dancing with the Stars in Week Eight of the ten-week dance competition show with her celebrity partner Robert Herjavec, known from Shark Tank. She released her health and fitness brand which includes her first book from Regan Arts, The 5678Diet, and she also released a fitness DVD titled 5678 Fitness. The exciting new development is the much-anticipated dance/fitness studio that she is opening in Beverly Hills (in the iconic Richard Simmons space).
