I got the opportunity to teach at the School Nutrition Association National Conference as part of their Steps Challenge program sponsored by Jennie O. It was so great hanging out with lunch ladies (and a few lunch men) from all over the country! Over 300 attendees turned out and participated in my “dance as fitness” class. We had so much fun! Check out the photos and video from the event below. To all the attendees, thanks so much for showing up super duper early on a Tuesday morning during your conference and dancing with me, and thanks for being on the front lines every day, helping kids and making their lives better!
A lot of you asked for the names of the line dances and the songs. Here’s a list of what I taught. All songs available on iTunes. Cupid Shuffle to the song Cupid Shuffle by Cupid, The Chicken Dance to the song Chicken Dance by SPITZE, YMCA to the song YMCA by The Village People, The CC Shuffle to the song Fast As You by Dwight Yoakam, The Macarena to the Macarena Dance Radio Edit by 2 Locos in a Room, The Electric Slide to Electric Boogie by Marcia Griffiths, The Hustle to The Hustle Super Hustle Mix by Van McCoy, and the Cha Cha Slide to Casper Cha Cha Slide by Casper and The Live Platinum Band.
Thanks again for letting me be a small part of the Steps Challenge! Make sure you sign up for the Steps Challenge program and participate in the monthly challenges!
