Biography

Originally retrieved from abc.com
Mark is an Emmy®-nominated choreographer, actor and musician. As part of the professional cast of Dancing with the Stars for nineteen seasons, Mark has proven to not only be a fan favorite, but is also no stranger to the coveted Mirrorball Trophy. He is a two-time champion and a seven-time finalist, winning season six with Kristi Yamaguchi and season eight with Shawn Johnson.

Born in Houston, Texas, Mark moved to London with his family as a child and joined the Italia Conti Academy of Dramatic Arts Associate School where his training in acting, singing, dancing and music began.

When not dancing, Mark focuses on his other passion, music. Mark is an accomplished guitarist specializing in Flamenco, Funk, Blues, and Rock. In May 2014, Mark released his debut single "Get My Name" produced by Wizz Dumb, which Ballas co-wrote with writer Jo’zzy. "Get My Name" broke Top 40 in release week on the iTunes pop chart landing #24 and the music video debuted #1 on multiple MTV platforms. On 3 August 2014, Mark released his second single, "Miss Incredible", again produced by Wizz Dumb and written by Ballas and Jo’zzy. The breath taking cinematic-style "Miss Incredible" video features Miss Incredibles from all walks of life and was released August 25, 2014. Mark's first full production solo EP, Kicking Clouds, dropped early Fall 2014. Both "Get My Name" and "Miss Incredible" are available on iTunes now.
