Lonestar Championships, Austin Texas

Just had to share a few of these wonderful photographs that David Holmes took this past weekend in Austin, Texas for the Lonestar Championships. It was one of those mad and magical dance weekends, that sometimes can’t be captured in photos, but actually David has really managed it. Here are a few he took of me, and a few of my favourites in general…

Oh and PS: I won 2nd place in the Charleston Battle, beaten only by my dashing dance partner Juan who took 1st! Juan also won 2nd place in the invitational Jack & Jill with the lovely Laura Glaess. Oh and my sister Killer Diller, Evita “Pocket Rocket” Arce, won 1st in the Blues contest, dancing with sexy Jeremie Anderson. Great weekend all round, highly recommended for 2011!!! Congratulations to Scott and Tena for an amazing event!
