Fulton Jr. High Students, Staff Join National “Let’s Move” Dance Event

At exactly 1:42 p.m. Tuesday, Fulton Junior High School became a dance club.

The students and some staff members joined a national movement when they turned a “basketball game” into a dance routine.

Schools all over the country came to a halt at exactly the same time to do the same dance.

They were part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative, aimed at getting young people off their couches and away from their snack food.

They danced a choreographed routine along with Grammy-winning singer Beyonce, whose song “Move Your Body” was the soundtrack for the day’s events.

We’ve got two views of the event. The first is from the school and the second is from parent and professional photographer Jen Marriner.

Here’s the original Beyonce video that served as the plan for the dance routine:
