Looks like Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess are going to be dancing their way into fans hearts
When it comes to bringing the heat on 'Dancing With The Stars', it always helps if the partnership between the celebrity and the pro-dancer packs a bit of chemistry. While nailing all the technicalities of dancing is one thing, a few performances certainly depend on chemistry as well. It certainly gives these teams a bit of an edge if they can strike the right balance.
While 'DWTS' has led to several romances, Season 30 is sure to witness something rather interesting, seeing that actor Brian Austin Green's partner this season is his very own girlfriend and seasoned 'DWTS' pro, Sharna Burgess! Curious to know if the couple has what it takes to smoke out the competition? Check out Burgess track record below!
Who is Sharna Burgess?
Sharna May Burgess is an Australian ballroom dancer. Apart from being a professional partner on 'Dancing with the Stars', she was also a judge on the Australian version of the show since 2019, alongside Craig Revel Horwood and Tristan MacManus. On 21 June 1985, she was born in Wagga Wagga, Australia, to Ray and Lucy Burgess. She began training in ballet, jazz and gymnastics at age 5 and at age 8, she started ballroom dancing. She went on to win several local and national titles and by age 15, she was chosen to represent Australia at the World Championships and even performed in the 2000 Summer Olympics Closing Ceremonies.
She is dating her Season 30 partner, Brian Austin Green
After his breakup with Megan Fox earlier last year, Brian Austin Green found love in the arms of Sharna Burgess and it turns out, the quarantine lockdown helped their relationship blossom.
"We met at a coffee shop, then had a few dates and then we were locked in a house together," Burgess explained in a conversation with PEOPLE. "I was grateful for that because it allowed us to really take our time and it was really awesome." she added.
For Green too, the spark was instant. "On our first date, we just completely lost track of time and the same thing happened the next time. It became something noticeably different from anything I'd ever experienced before." he added "I wasn't sure what that meant until the first time we kissed and then it was the attraction and a whole bunch more. It was really cool. And we really have the same moral compass." he explained. The pro-dancer even posted a photo of the pair and captioned it 'End Game' leading to engagement rumors. Talent Recap, however, cleared the air, reporting that she denied the same. However, seeing that they two are expected to bring the heat on the dance floor, we have our fingers crossed -- maybe there is an on-air engagement in the books this season.
