How long have you lived in Cincinnati?  

I’ve lived here 30 years.  I am the son of the infamous Mrs. Woloshin, the art teacher at Rockwern Academy (Yavneh Day School).  I attended and graduated from Yavneh Day School and then went on to attend Cincinnati Country Day School, where I was Homecoming King senior year and won the Iron Man Award for football. I also was a lead in 3 musicals (Grease, Anything Goes, and 7 Brides for 7 Brothers).  I graduated Cum Laude from the University of Miami (FL), and was a regular on Sports Radio WVUM broadcasting for all sports. I came back to the Midwest and graduated from the University of Dayton, School of Law in 2009.


What is your profession? 

I became licensed to practice Law in 2009 in Kentucky and joined the Dynamic Duo of Woloshin and Woloshin. We have a general practice in Northern Kentucky, and recently in 2017 I became licensed to practice in Ohio. I enjoy being a lawyer and love practicing with my dad. 


What about your volunteer history?

In high school I regularly volunteered at the Henry Hosea Soup Kitchen and in college, I joined with my fraternity in multiple volunteer projects including Hurricanes Help the Hometown. I currently serve on the Caring Counsel for Planning and Allocations at the Jewish Federation and have been part of this committee since 2014. 


I have also attended and graduated from the LEAD program through YAD Cincinnati and have recently become a YAD Ambassador for the foreseeable future, welcoming new Young Adults to the Community.  I’ve taken part of Super Sunday for multiple years, and have enjoyed delivering food for the Passover Delivery Project for JFS last year.


What are your hobbies?

Sports of all sorts!  I’m a huge Reds, Bengals, and FC Cincinnati Fan: I had the opportunity to attend the World Cup in 2014 and have been to hundreds of sports events all over the world.  I am proud to say that I am currently leading my kickball team, the Matzah Ballers, in kickball domination.  I just love to play sports and be active!


I also love socializing and being with my friends.  I’m always up to attending concerts and musical festivals: love that live music!  And travel, I love to travel and will be heading to Iceland, Scotland and Ireland in June 2018.


What’s your best dancing asset?

My smile and my charm.


What inspired you to dance for Jewish Family Service?

It took a few people to convince me, but ultimately it came down to being able to help raise money and awareness for a great and incredibly important organization.


What don't we know about you that would make someone want to support you?

I have been a proud member of the Cincinnati Jewish Community my entire life. I love Cincinnati, and love this community.  I am deeply committed to my friends, family, and home town. Most importantly, I have an awesome beagle/English bulldog named Boss who will melt your heart. 


What did your family say when you told them you were dancing? 

My mom cheered when she found out!  She is a HUGE Dancing With The Stars fan, and has been trying to get me to go to dance classes for years, so she’s pretty excited.  As my mom’s birthday is November 3rd, this is the perfect gift to her!  My dad and brother had a good laugh. 

A message to my supporters:

First off you rock! Secondly, I want to thank everyone for supporting me in my secret life ambition of dancing in front of a room full of people in a competitive manner. Actually that sounds more like my mother, Diane Woloshin's dream for me. I am honored to have been chosen for this years Dancing with the Stars and couldn't be prouder then to help a tremendous organization like Jewish Family Service. 
I have played football and tackled an NFL player, been homecoming King, broadcast football, basketball, and baseball at the University of Miami, but this remains the most DAUNTING challenge yet. I certainly appreciate everyone who can help support me in this years competition, every dollar and donation counts! Thanks again to everyone.  
Much love and thanks,
Michael Woloshin
