Did Bristol Palin bust a move in an Anchorage, Alaska, sports bar this week? You betcha!

Sarah Palin's oldest daughter – and red hot cha cha dancer – arrived at Rumrunners in Anchorage with her Dancing with the Stars pro partner Mark Ballas and an ABC camera crew in tow, and was greeted by "a pretty big gaggle of friends," according to an eyewitness.

Back in her home state to film a segment for the hit dance competition, the 19-year-old wore jeans and a zip-up sweatshirt and "seemed excited," according to an onlooker. "She hugged everyone when they came in and introduced Mark to everyone. She looked really good, actually, and happy."

A sign marked "Palin family" sparked curiosity, but neither Sarah nor Todd Palin attended the event.





And while Ballas and Palin took a turn on the dance floor, Ballas pleased his partner when he took the stage to belt out a few tunes. Says the observer: "Bristol cheered the loudest after he finished each song."

While in Alaska, the two-time Dancing champ also had a chance to take in the sights and meet one of the state's most famous residents, Bristol's mom Sarah.
