NEW YORK — Donny Osmond may have been the celebrity winner on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” but his professional dancing partner already has her next gig lined up — Broadway.

Kym Johnson will make her Broadway debut Friday in “Burn the Floor,” the hot-blooded ballroom dance show at the Longacre Theatre. She will be partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, another alum of “Stars.” He opened “Burn the Floor” on Broadway in August.

Johnson will be on Broadway through Jan. 10. She did the original workshop of “Burn the Floor” in London in 1998 and later toured around the world with the production
