Ms. Namita Nayyar: After your performance in the World Championships Semi Finals, you discovered that you had a little tear in your knee ligament. Rather than take immediate action, you wanted to finish the competition. You needed knee replacement surgery because you ripped two ligaments in half and lost the meniscus in one knee. Tell us more about how you were able to overcome such a physical injury setback and what advice you would give to other dancers in a similar situation?
Ms. Sharna Burgess: I decided to continue to dance in the competition because I was young and I did not understand the magnitude of my injury and decision. I was in a brace for six months and I could not walk for a while because the operation was so intense and the pain was simply too much. I was able to come back strong because I listened to my doctors and did every single exercise and treatment they gave me.
I knew I had to come back strong otherwise my career was done. I never lost faith that I would dance again and chase my dreams like I was doing before. My advice to every dancer or to everyone for that matter is to take care of your body. Listen to your body and if something feels off, get it checked. If you doctors diagnosis you with something you don’t like, you still have to listen. I made the mistake of thinking that it wasn’t as bad as he told me… and look what happened to me. Don’t let it happen to you. You only get one body and one chance at life. You need to treat them well.
