My favorite pieces of evidence under the cut.
- swiftfoxe and his partner Joanna shakin' it in a corta jaca during gold samba. .
- swiftfoxe and Joanna cleverly upstaging the couple behind them.
- swifttfoxe and Joanna looking smashing during the paso.
- And again, with the sexy paso.
- swiftfoxe chasing adorably after Joanna during the pre champ cha cha.
- swiftfoxe and Joanna during a pretty hopping jive.
- Lo! My swooshy dress bottom.
- And again!
- Me and my partner Joe looking pretty good during the cha cha.
- Another fairly good one.
- A good smooth pose.
- Swirly dress!
- I'm so happy ....if only I would ever open my eyes...
- I'm so happy, you don't even need to see my smile.
