Tucson MOVE Your Body FlashWorkout at the Tucson Meet Yourself Folklife Festival

Youth of all ages will dance along with Beyonce's popular dance/exercise workout in support of First Lady Michelle Obama's Lets Move! campaign to combat childhood obesity. In Pima County 6 in 10 adults are overweight or obese, and nearly 1 in 3 children and teens are overweight or obese. Children who are overweight or obese face increased risk for disease and are also prone to bullying, social exclusion and low self-esteem, which directly impact their academic and social lives. The dance will be taught to kids in school, after school, in dance/exercise studios and youth centers. Anyone can learn the fun, simple moves and join in. Immediately following the FlashWorkout at the Festival, a giant MOVING Parade will swirl through all areas of the Festival in a 'join-the-parade' celebration of parade traditions, costumes and color. Tucson Meet Yourself will coordinate dance and music instruction with community performance groups at schools in an extension of TMY's educational programming leading up to the Festival.

In an effort to bring the Tucson community together to draw awareness of the importance of physical activity in our daily lives, we would love to have your organization and it's members be a part of this incredible event!

If you are interested in participating as a volunteer dance instructor, or if you are part of a group or organization that would like to be a part of this event please send an email to Mirea. I will contact you to identify needs and to coordinate details. Let's Move Tucson!!!!
