Playing EXCLUSIVE: Sharna Burgess Dishes on Her Post-'DWTS' Dreams: 'The Bachelorette,' Broadway & More!

Sharna Burgess is still vying for her first mirror ball trophy, but she already has an idea of what she'd like to do once her time on Dancing With the Stars is over!

The 31-year-old dancer, who is currently competing with pro bull rider Bonner Bolton on the competition show's 24th season, recently stopped by ET's studio in Los Angeles for a Facebook Live interview, where she shared her post-DWTS dreams.

When asked by a fan if she'd ever consider being on The Bachelorette, the red-headed beauty told ET's Lauren Zima she was all for it.

"Yeah! Sure, why not?" she replied. "Who doesn't want a bunch of beautiful men all pining for your attention? I would love to!"

And it makes sense! Despite the ongoing rumors that she and Bonner are more than just dancing partners, Burgess insists she's still single, making her a perfect candidate for the next pool of potential Bachelorettes.

"I'm just not that girl. I'm a professional before all of it," she explained. "We by no means are out there trying to make this a romantic thing."

All smiles all day 😄

But if ABC doesn't reach out to her about the reality dating show, she has another dream in mind -- going back to Broadway!

"I would actually love to go back," she gushed. "I was on Broadway years ago in 2009, and I would love to go back to being on Broadway, dancing, bringing in the singing and acting side of it, two other things I'm very passionate about."

"Chicago is something I'd love to be a part of," she continued. "I mean, I just connect to the character Velma. I was singing up until my mid-teen years and then it dropped off for a little while. I've always sort of kept up with it but have since been doing it a lot more seeing as musical movies are coming back. I want to brush up on all my skills so I can hopefully have an opportunity in that world."

Right now, however, she's fully focused on creating magical choreography for Bolton, whose journey on DWTS has been quite incredible thus far. Despite one week of low scores, the 29-year-old athlete has wowed the judges, due in part to the undeniable onstage chemistry he shares with Burgess.

While chatting with ET, the Australian dancer shared some of the secrets to #TeamDenimNDiamonds' success, and how she plans to hopefully keep Bolton in the competition until the end.

"I try not to interact with the judges because it never goes down well! You accept it, listen, and at the end of the day, they're hired for their critiques and they're watching the dance and they're all going to say something different," she said, when asked why she doesn't respond to the judges' critiques, as other pairs sometimes do. "They're all looking for different things at the end of the day. Len is always looking for that technique, Carrie Ann is looking for the lifts, Bruno is looking for the personality… you have to accept that they all have their opinions of your dance and just nod, smile, take it on the chin and try to work and be better so they don't say it again. That is my view of the judges -- just be gracious and take it."

That being said, Burgess revealed that while she's in choreography mode, she does think about what each judge would or would not like.

"When I'm doing a ballroom routine, do I have enough in hold, or is Len going to say something to me? Because no one wants to get yelled at by Len on national television!" she joked. "I love Len and I love his consistency ... at the end of the day, it's kind of [up to] us. If we go out there and do something that's a little more contemporary or in ballroom we break hold, that's on us. He's had the same [dance] rules the whole time. We take those risks."

"With Bonner, honestly, my strategy is just to have him improve as much as we can each week," she continued. "I think my goal for him is to have him moving better with his injuries, feeling stronger and more confident. That really is one of our biggest challenges right now, is that he doesn't have the trust and confidence in his body to be able to push it further and move it faster and harder."
