For the 20th season of Dancing with the Stars, professional dancer and choreographer Sharna Burgess is sharing her inside scoop with Closer readers — everything from show highlights and behind the scenes secrets to her experience dancing with Army veteran and double amputee, Noah Galloway! Read her final blog post below.
This season of Dancing with the Stars has been a dream come true! Congratulations to Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy on their well-deserved win! This journey has been a true gift, and I’m honored to have shared the stage with such beautiful people.

We may not have received the Mirror Ball Trophy, but Noah and I won this competition in so many other ways! He inspired me every minute of our journey together, and I’m so thankful he trusted me to tell his inspiring story through dance.
It takes an extremely brave individual to overcome what Noah has gone through. Noah gave me his all on the dance floor each and every week, and I could not be more proud of him. He pushed me creatively and it has been incredible to choreograph his routines. Noah is and will always be my hero.
