Karina Smirnoff Biography

Season 13 Mirror Ball Champion Karina Smirnoff has made her mark for twenty seasons as one of the featured dancers on ABC's hit reality series "Dancing with the Stars". Her success on "Dancing with the Stars", the #1 rated show in its category averaging 36+ million viewers per week, has made Karina a household name and a sought after beauty, health, fitness, and fashion icon. In 2011 she was the most Googled professional dancer on the show.

What most people don't know about the Ukrainian beauty is that her skills are not merely physical. She studied diligently at Fordham University in New York and earned two degrees: a B.A. in Economics and in Information Systems Programming. Karina is also a talented fashion designer and choreographer. She choreographs all of her own partnered routines on "Dancing with the Stars" and has been designing all of the costumes for both her and her current partner for the season since day one.

Karina started competing in ballroom dancing competitions at the age of 11. She is a five-time U.S. National Champion, World Trophy Champion, and Asian Open Champion. She has won the title at the UK Open, is a three-time champion at the US Open, two-time champion at the Asian Open, five-time champion at the Dutch Open, and five-time US National Professional Champion. She has taken second at the British Open Blackpool Dance Festival and she is the first woman to also ever make the "British Professional Final" with three different partners. Karina has also been ranked #2 in the world for Latin Dance.

Karina has a passion for environmental causes and her dance studio is the first eco-friendly LEED certified studio of its kind. In addition, Karina has led a celebrity consortium to activate the Wildlife Champions initiative with Procter & Gamble. She is also a PETA spokeswoman for the "I'd rather dance naked than wear fur" billboard and print campaign.

Her past accomplishments include a starring role in Broadway's hit record breaking sold out show "Burn the Floor" and a performance at the 61st annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Karina has hosted segments for E! News, TV Guide, EXTRA, and has appeared in specials on Bravo, ABC, and Lifetime. She has appeared on "Good Morning America," "The View," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and "Hannah Montana," among others. She has also appeared in the film "Shall We Dance."
