About Family Dance-off
In partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Primrose Schools promotes physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices by encouraging families across the country to get up and dance in our annual Family Dance-off.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three American children is overweight or obese. Additional research reveals that 90 percent become overweight before their fifth birthday, with a full 50 percent becoming overweight by age two. With leading experts now focusing on age two as a “tipping point” for later obesity, it’s more important than ever to counter this trend by promoting healthy habits in early childhood.
In the first three years of the Family Dance-off, Primrose Schools has donated a total of $180,000 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, plus great cash prizes for the winning families! We hope you’ll join us as we dance for miracles again in 2013!
