2017 Dancing With The Stars Austin 2018-01-05T17:43:02+00:00

Thank You for $1.6 Million Raised!

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2017 | 6:00 PM | JW MARRIOTT AUSTIN

The 11th Annual Dancing with the Stars Austin, presented by Lexus of Austin & Lakeway, provided a reimagined experience and an evening of exhilarating entertainment for guests filled with competition, philanthropy and a raffle drawing, all to benefit young victims of abuse in Travis County. More than 1,000 people gathered in the JW Marriott Grand Ballroom to raise more than $1.6 million.

Creative Director Glenn Ball produced an incredible show of eye-catching routines led by a group of 11 celebrity dancers and their professional partners. From a lively mix of Drums & Disco to an upbeat country number, all of the dances showcased the hard work each celebrity dancer devoted to their practices over the last three months. After 11 routines that brought the audience to their feet, Javier Aguirre and professional partner Azucena Perez’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” routine awarded them the coveted mirror ball trophy and the title of 2017 Dancing with the Stars Austin winners. First runner-up went to Kley Reynolds and professional partner Sarah Vasilas, while Tracey Marshall and professional partner Travis Herman were awarded second runner-up.

A special thank you to Event Chairs Francie Little & Jeanne Parker; Emcees Holly Mills-Gardner & Lance Avery Morgan; Judges Ed Clements, Quita Culpepper & Kell Cahoon; and last but certainly not least, our celebrity dancers and event sponsors. We couldn’t have raised $1.6 million without you all!
