Ballroom title won

JOSH Greaves and Alissa Corbet are the 2012 winners of Dancing with the Devils.

The Gympie Devils' duo held off a spirited Gympie Cats Australian Football Club's Corey Wickson and Cassie Butler.

The second placegetters missed out on the No. 1 spot by just one point.

Gympie Devils' couple Kaine Ernst and Karolyn Kimmince finished third.

Miss Corbet said she was shocked to win the title when the competition was so good.

"We danced pretty well until after we won," Miss Corbet said.

In the show dance after winning, Mr Greaves lost his footing.

"He then decided to do his own dance and swung me around," she laughed.

Ms Corbet said she had loved the past seven weeks training for the event.

"We had heaps of fun and I would like to thank the Gympie Devils for putting on such a good event.

"I'd like to thank all the dancers, they were awesome, and Bronwyn Molloy for teaching us over the past seven weeks."

She also thanked event co-ordinators Prue Marshall and Melissa Payne who said they were overwhelmed by the support shown for the Dancing with the Devils concept.

Mrs Marshall said the club had more than 450 people at the event and raised more than $10,000 for the league club.

"It was massive, really good. It exceeded all our expectations," she said.

Mrs Marshall said the event couldn't have gone ahead without the support of the business community.

"The local businesses who have come on board where great, not to mention the dancers. Their commitment with time helped make it a huge success."

She said the entire night went well, from the food by caterers Picnicin and the decorations by Anna Reid from Party World to the entertainment by the dancers.
