Beyonce Joins “Let’s Move!” Campaign With Fitness Flash Mob Music Video

on Thursday, Apr. 28th

Beyonce has always inspired people with her dance moves. There are people who do the “Single Ladies” dance as a daily exercise routine. Now, the singing sensation has made these intentions explicit, with her new music video “Move Your Body” – aimed at taking up Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign and encouraging American kids to be active.

The video is a re-make of her song, “Get Me Bodied.” In the new video, Beyonce leads a cafeteria full of middle school students in a dance exercise routine – jumping off tables and biting into apples at the end. And she still looks as classy as can be.

In African American and Hispanic communities today, 40 percent of children are obese, according to Let’s Move. It will be interesting to see if Beyonce’s presence in the movement will make an impact on changing these numbers. What do you think?
