I am so excited to tell you all about a very special project am working on with my Movin’ It with Mrs. Oregon team. MIMO has partnered with WAT-AAH (an amazing kids water company that fights childhood obesity) to host Oregon’s first Beyonce “Move Your Body Challenge.”
Beyonce joined forces with First Lady Michelle Obama to promote the national Let’s Move! campaign, which aims to target childhood obesity. Beyonce wrote a song called “Move Your Body” and created a flash workout that is being distributed to junior high schools across the country. This dance is about promoting healthy fun exercise and getting schools and kids moving around the country. Team MIMO is excited to be a part of this national campaign and has chosen Stoller Middle School in Beaverton, Oregon as the school that will learn and video record this dance May 1, 2013. Our footage will be mashed together with other schools around the country for the 2013 “Move Your Body” mash up hosted by WAT-AAH!
We will also showcase the Stoller students that learned this routine during our next Movin’ It Beaverton Health Kids Day and Health Fair at Stoller Middle School May 18th.
To learn more about the Move Your Body dance visit our Moving Oregon blog. I have videos posted of Beyonce and kids performing as well as an instructional video for you to learn the routine at home.
