A few weeks ago, Melissa and I trekked down to Roanoke, Virginia, to watch my sister do some ballroom dancing at the fall Showcase Spectacular and Mini-Match, which was put on by the Arthur Murray Dance Center of Roanoke. I don’t pretend to know anything about ballroom dancing—I figure the rumba has something to do with an automated vacuum—but I am reasonably certain that Kristen is very good at it.

Anyway, the first video is of her two solo routines, while the second is of her six ‘mini-match’ routines. And one of these days, I’ll remember to bring my tripod. Enjoy!

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
