First Lady Michelle Obama made a surprise visit to Alice Deal Middle School to join students in a Lets Move! Flash Workout on Tuesday, May 3. Over 600 schools across the country participated in similar workouts at the same time.
Michelle Obama is so serious about her Let’s Move campaign to fight childhood obesity that she led by example by dancing with a field full of students in Washington, D.C.
From The Los Angeles Times:
While Beyoncé’s “Move Your Body” blasted over a sound system at Alice Deal Middle School, the first lady went through a series of dance moves, from the old-school Running Man to the newest craze, the Dougie, to the delight of the youngsters who sashayed along with her.
“Beyoncé is one of my favorite performers on the planet. And when she agreed to remake her video and do this Let’s Move flash workout, I was so excited, because this is what we’ve been talking about — that exercise and moving can be fun,” Obama told ABC News.
