So You Think Your Family Can Dance?

Here’s an invitation to dance with your kids, compete for cash prizes and win a large donation for Children’s Hospital here in Birmingham.

Primrose Schools* is sponsoring a Family Dance-Off to fight childhood obesity by encouraging families to be active. Dance is a fun, no-pressure way to move and spend time together. After all, once we moms become the chaperones at the school dance, the gig is up.

The grand prize is $5,000 for the winner and a $30,000 donation from Primrose Schools to that winner’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Most of us are going to have a reason to visit our Children’s if we haven’t already (tonsils, stitches, tubes,and more).

Visit to upload your 30-second video by March 19, 2011. You’ll want to encourage friends and family to vote for your video, and you may place up to five votes per day.

There are three Primrose School locations in the Birmingham area: Liberty Park, Meadowbrook, and Helena. You may enjoy the parenting tips available through the Primrose website, Dr. Z and Friends.
