Sharna Burgess is best known for her mesmerizing moves on Dancing with the Stars. This season, she’s back and has been partnered with world champion professional bull rider, Bonner Bolton. The two will performed their first dance together last night, as the season 24 premiere sparked an exciting new season! Speaking of sparks, the season has barely begun and the rumor mill is already churning out Burgess-Bolton relationship rumors. But first, let us get to know a little more about the 31-year-old Australian ballroom dancer in our Sharna Burgess wiki!

Dancing with the Stars is a show that definitely makes you want to get up and dance —especially after seeing how easy the dancers make it look! Sharna Burgess has captivated judges ever since she joined the Dancing with the Stars cast in season 13! Since then, she has sparked the interest of fans of the show, and this season she’s working hard, with high hopes of winning the coveted Mirror Ball trophy! We’ve got all the information you need on the Australian dancer, and what we can expect from her this season.

Dancing with the Stars’ season 24 premiere saw Burgess and Bolton perform a cowboy themed dance routine, and it seems that the couple is already making headlines after their live performance! Following their cha-cha routine to Luke Bryan’s “Move,” Bolton was seen getting a little “handsy” with Burgess, though it may have been an innocent mistake. The incident occurred almost off-camera, when Burgess walked over to Bolton, who then put his hand around her waist, brushing up against her crotch. It didn’t look like much at the time, as the focus was on host Erin Andrews interviewing Nick Viall, but eagle-eyed fans zoomed in on Bolton’s hand, causing the Internet frenzy. While Bolton has apologized, and brushed it off as an innocent misplacement of his hand, many aren’t convinced and the air is rife with speculation that the two are dating.

And if that’s the case, we should get to know more about Sharna Burgess, like her net worth, partner, boyfriend, and Dancing with the Stars career! So, keep reading for everything you need to know about Sharna Burgess.
