Dancing with the Stars Austin presented by Lexus of Austin features Austin notables paired with professional dancers for ballroom dance performances and a unique evening of entertainment. The 2013 event will be a night of fun as a new group of community members compete in a dance-off for the coveted mirror ball trophy and raise money for the abused children of Austin. Each year, the success of this event has allowed the Center to provide more services to kids, teens and their families including pet therapy, an interactive ropes course and psychiatric services.
