Fraser (Kari Fraser)

From Daytime to the ballroom.

Longtime fans of "All of My Children" might remember that before Cady McClain, there was another actress who portrayed Dixie Cooney. Kari Gibson (now Fraser) was the first to play Dixie in a couple of episodes in 1988. Since then, Fraser has joined the national ballroom dance circuit along with her son and daughter.

Kari, Grace (14) and Holden (11) began taking dance lessons in 2009. In that short amount of time, the family has won over 232 1st place awards at 11 competitions.

Based in Pasadena, California, the Fraser Family Dance Group trains at ballrooms in Glendale, Eagle Rock and the Westmor Dance Studio in downtown Los Angles. They have also enlisted Paul Killick (former partner to Dancing with the Stars' Karina Smirnoff) as their private coach.

Watch the video below of the dance family competing at the California Open Dancesport Championships in Irvine, California in February of this year.
