Kym made her Australian television debut on the first smash hit series of "Dancing with the Stars" partnering with Justin Melvey, Michael Catonand then Hines Ward in 2011. It was, however, her triumphant achievement of winning series 2 with Tom Williams that propelled her fame nationwide.
Following their success, Kym starred on the "Champion of Champions" series, "Celebrity Survivor" on behalf of the Merry Makers Charity, and made a cameo performance on the fourth "Dancing with the Stars" Grand Final during Alex Lloyd's live rendition of "Amazing".
Kym is an Australian Ballroom Champion and World Representative of Ballroom Dance, but originally trained in ballet, tap, jazz, and and singing, as well as acrobatics, before specializing in ballroom. Kym actually began ballroom at the relatively late age of 13 when she was dragged to lessons by her brother who decided it would be a good way for him to meet girls. She soon got the bug and it wasn't long before she was dancing competitively.
Kym studied for over 2 years in the UK before being cast out of London in the highly acclaimed 6 month European and 6 month United States tour of "Burn the Floor". Kym performed at Paris Casino in Las Vegas, Royal Albert Hall in London, Radio City Music Hall in New York, Elton John's 50th Birthday and Cannes Film festival to name a few. Kym returned to Australia for Dame Edna/Barry Humphries national "Back to my Roots" production before rejoining "Burn the Floor" to continue with the world tour.
Kym was thrilled to join the American cast of "Dancing with the Stars" partnering Jerry Springer, a man she says is "one of the nicest" she's ever met. Throughout the series Jerry and Kym became the clear audience favourite with host, Tom Bergeron, referring to the dancing duo as "the heart and soul of the show".
During Kym and Jerry's seven weeks of competition the couple formed a lifelong friendship and on their last episode Jerry described Kym as "America's Sweetheart with an Australian accent".
Keeping Australia updated of her American adventures, Kym wrote her popular weekly 'behind the scenes' diary for OK! Magazine. In 2011 Kym won the Dancing With the Stars trophy with partner Hines Ward for a second time.
