Dancing with the Celebrities

June 21, 2016

Last month I had the pleasure of being chosen as a dancer in "Dancing with the Celebrities" of Pittsburgh to help raise money for The Animal Friends of Westmoreland. No, I don't have dance experience but I had lots of help learning this dance, and several months of practice! You can check out the video of our dance here, and photos below (Thanks to Savvy Shots Photography)! Big thank you to everyone who came to support me, my fabulous dance partner Paul, instructor Luanne (owner of Integral Ballroom), Candy Nelson, founder of Animal Friends, and congrats to the other dancers and winners! It was such a fun event, I was so happy to just take part in it and try to compete for the trophy. Even though we didn't win, I had so much fun & we raised money for the animals... which is all the reason for doing it!
