Post-'Dancing with the Stars' Plans: Kym Johnson Hits Broadway

It's like she never left the Dancing with the Stars stage, except, of course, her trusty partner Donny Osmond is no where in sight.

Kym Johnson, half of this season's winning couple on Dancing with the Stars, had no romantic vacation like third placer Kelly Osbourne, but instead immediately went to rehearsal less than a day after the episode where she took home season 9's mirror ball trophy.

Johnson, who now has the distinction of being the only professional dancer who won a season on two DWTS (the other one being in Australia), is in Broadway's Burn the Floor with fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who is currently embroiled in a controversy regarding sort of estranged ex-fiance Karina Smirnoff.

"Everybody has been so enthusiastic, so supportive," Johnson tells PEOPLE. "I've received flowers from people I don't even know. It's so amazing!"

She adds that many Dancing with the Stars fans troop to the show to see them perform live, including Donny Osmond fans, who, as we have seen, come in legions.

The 33-year-old has more DWTS collaborations. She recently released two new dance DVD's, teaming up with Dmitry Chaplin and Lacey Schwimmer for Dancing with the Stars Dance Off the Pounds and Dancing with the Stars Dance Body Tone DVDs.

"People tell me all the time how much fun they have and how when they do the workouts they see differences in their bodies," Johnson says. "Each dance routine is about 15 minutes long and it's definitely a workout, but it doesn't feel like a workout because it's good fun."

As for her Christmas plans, the Australian dancer admits that it's the first time she'll experience winter. Taking down a walk down Fifth Avenue and seeing all the shops all decorated? She says it's "magical."
