Local families need your vote in dance-off competition

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Two local families are competing in a nationwide contest to win a $30,000 donation for the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

Primrose Schools' Family Dance-Off is trying to promote healthy lifestyles. The Meyer and Goodlett families, both of Forest Hills, are also competing for a $5,000 cash prize. Second prize wins $3,000 and $20,000 for the hospital, and third prize wins $1,500 and a $15,000 donation for the hospital.

The Meyer family (click to watch video) has spent a lot of time at Children's Hospital after their son, Max, was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia. Their video is titled "Meyer Fam Jam" and is basketball-themed. Basketball is the favorite sport of Max and his brother, Alex.

The Goodlett family (click to watch video) features parents Jenny and Jay, who are retired Cincinnati Ballet Company dancers. Their children, Megan and Nate, take dance lessons at the Studio for Dance in Blue Ash. Jenny heard an ad for the Dance Off and jumped at the opportunity to participate. Their video, "Every Goodlett Dance Now," showcases some of their best dance moves.

Online voting runs now through March 30 at 11:59 p.m. For more information, visit familydanceoff.com.
