Former Home And Away star Sharni Vinson joins new series DANCE BOSS

Put on your dancing shoes, Australia!

Sharni Vinson may have found fame playing Cassie Turner on the beloved Australian soap Home & Away, but she's ready to try her hand at something new in Channel Seven's upcoming reality TV series DANCE BOSS.
Alongside host Dannii Minogue, Sharni will join fellow dance experts Timomatic (So You Think You Can Dance, Australia's Got Talent) and Adam Garcia (Coyote Ugly, Bootmen) in judging the contestants on the new show.
The trio will judge 12 teams of workers from the same workplace or profession, as they compete in a series dance-offs for a prize of $100,000.

"I am beyond excited to be back on Australian soil and surrounded by the contagious spirit of dance," the 35-year-old actress said in a statement.
While fans probably already know that Sharni starred (and danced!) in Step Up 3D, Disney's third instalment of the Step Up franchise, they may not know she is trained in ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, tap and acrobatics, making her the perfect judge for a dance competition.

Her fellow judges are also incredible dancers, with Timomatic finding his fame in a similar competition, So You Think You Can Dance Australia, back in 2009.
"I got my first break on a show a bit like this, so I know exactly what these teams will be going through," he said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Adam practically invented dance in the land down under, performing as a member of the ground-breaking Hot Shoe Shuffle, which was the first Australian musical to go to London's West End. He went on to star in the Tap Dogs film Bootmen and has an impressive amount of experience judging dancing competitions after doing four seasons of the UK's Got To Dance and one season of Australia's Dancing With The Stars.
"I'm really excited to be a part of this brilliant new show that celebrates the love and passion Aussies have for dance and all the different things dancing gives them. And we're going to share that love around to everyone," Adam said of the new show. Now, all that's left to do is meet the contestants - and we can't wait.
