Who will be voted Cincinnati’s best celebrity dancer?  Which stars have the right moves to rule the dance floor?  Find out on Saturday, April 14th, 2018 when the Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) celebrates the twelfth season of its annual fundraiser Dancing for the Stars at the Music Hall Ballroom to benefit CAA’s Overture Awards – the nation’s largest locally-run high school arts scholarship competition – and arts education programs. Inspired by the hit ABC-TV show Dancing with the Stars, Dancing for the Stars will feature six Cincinnati celebrities paired with some of the area’s finest professional dancers in a competition program, at which the audience will vote for their favorite celebrity dancer. The competitive dance for the evening will be Swing, and each dance pair will have ninety seconds to woo the crowd and the judges.

The stars include:  Marcia Bowling, MD- Gynecologic Oncology, OHC - Oncology Hematology Care, Inc,  Ryan Messer-Regional Business Director, Johnson & Johnson and Cincinnati Public School Board Member, Renu Kotwal, MD- Psychiatry & Neurology, The Christ Hospital Network, Pam Kravetz- Nationally Recognized Artist, Arts Educator and Artworks Board Trustee, John J. Williams- Attorney and President of the Cincinnati Bar Association,  Steve Valerius- President Individual Division, Ameritas Life Insurance.

In addition, Dancing for the Stars will feature:

  • Online/mobile auction, raffles and wine pull
  • Dance music by guest DJ “Rockin’ Ron” Schumacher, WGRR-FM
  • Pre-event reception and wine tasting
  • Open dancing before and after the competition
  • Lite bites provided by some of Cincinnati’s finest restaurants and caterers
  • Cash bar

In addition to the winner of the dance competition, Dancing for the Stars will crown a Fundraising Champion – the celebrity dancer who raises the most revenue toward the event’s fundraising goal through table/ticket sales and donations from fans, who can add a donation under their favorite celebrity’s name at the time of ticket purchase, or simply make a donation if they cannot attend the event. These direct donations (outside of the event ticket price)  will help one of the fans’ favorite celebrities win the Dancing for the Stars Fundraising Champion award – which will be announced the evening of the event – and are 100% tax deductible.
