To help literally kick off its 2012 fundraising campaign, the United Way of Palo Pinto County hosted the annual benefit Dancing with the Stars Saturday. In addition to some kicks, the event featured many spins, twists and twirls.
Starting out the night’s dancing were demonstrations from Dallas-based J&B Performance competitive dance troupe.
For the night’s competition, six pairs of dancers went two rounds before the group was pared down to three pairs. The dancers included some competitive dancers as well as some residents who gained instruction and performed for a good cause.
