Biography and Career

Mary Murphy was born March 9, 1958 and she is a ballroom dance champion, accredited dance judge, and a regular judge and choreographer on the Fox dance competition reality show So You Think You Can Dance. She is also a TV personality. She was born in Lancaster, Ohio in an Irish family. She graduated from Northwest High School in Canal Fulton, Ohio.

After graduating from Ohio University with a degree in physical education and a minor in modern dance, she moved to Washington, D.C. to begin her career; she answered a newspaper advertisement for studio instructor trainees.

She became an instructor a fter only one week, and the studio owner invited her to attend the United States Ballroom Championships in New York City which was the event that influenced her to commit to a career in ballroom dancing.

Murphy moved to California and searched for a dance partner while working as an instructor. During the U.K. Open Championships in England, she met Manfred Sigletz, and a dancing partnership was formed. The two began to compete and eventually became the 1990 and 1991 Austrian National Champions.

She acted as a dance double for Julia Roberts in the movie something to Talk About and appeared in Dance with me, starring Vanessa L. Williams.
She currently runs her dance studio and organizes a Las Vegas dance competition, the Holiday Dance Classic.

She frequently serves as a judge in several competitions, including the U.S. National Ballroom Championships.

Murphy was part of the original guest judge and choreographer pool when season 1 began in 2005.

In 2006, for season 2, she made noticeably more appearances at the judging table than the other choreographers. In 2007, just prior to season 3, it was reported in TV Guide that she would be a permanent judge, a position previously only enjoyed by Nigel Lythgoe.
