On Sunday, December 6, some of our city’s best and brightest will take the stage with professional dance partners to raise awareness and funds for the Center for Child Protection at Dancing with the Stars Austin!

We wanted to shine a little more light on the special stars dancing with our stellar Go Dance instructors, so we asked them to tell us a little more about themselves and why they’re dancing in this year’s show! First up…

Biggest challenge in preparing for the show:
Trying to hold back on some of my killer moves… It has been hard for my professional dancer to keep up with my dance ability!

Greatest benefit of preparing for the show:
Becoming friends with the other dancers and learning more about the Center [for Child Protection].
