Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig is one of eight local celebrities who will be participating in  'Dancing for the Stars.'

'Dancing for the Stars' benefits CAA's Overture Awards– the nation's largest locally run high school arts scholarship competition. It will be held April 14 at the Music Hall Ballroom.

The local celebrities are paired with some of the area's professional dancers, and the winner is decided by an audience vote. The competitive dance for the evening will be the Cha Cha, and each dance pair will have 90 seconds to woo the crowd and the judges. 

Joining Chief Craig as celebrities are Janeen Coyle from WGRR; Peter Hiltz, a financial advisor from Wells Fargo; Candace Klein, an attorney and CEO of Bad Girl Ventures; Dr. Michael Leadbetter, a cosmetic surgeon at the Plastic Surgery Group; Joe Rigotti, creative director with Accent on Cincinnati; Meg Rouse, community volunteer; and Regina Russo, director of marketing and community relations at the Cincinnati Art Museum and former FOX19 anchor.

The Overture Awards is the largest locally run arts scholarship competition in the country. The program annually provides a $2,500 scholarship to six area high school students for education and training, with 18 finalists each winning a $500 scholarship.
