DDR Dance Dance Revolution

Who said video games are bad for your health.



Now if you took this and implemented it either into the school gym class or had a running total competition for your school imagine the skinny healthy cost effective health promotion you would have.

Kinda like West Virginia did.

Forget square dancing, relay races or rope climbing. The new way to spice up gym class in West Virginia involves the sweaty, fleet-footed rush of "Dance Dance Revolution."

The state of West Virginia and "DDR" publisher Konami announced Wednesday (January 25) that all 765 public schools in the Mountain State will incorporate the dance-pad-based video game into curriculum over the next two years.


A similar thing could be done with karaoke for literacy programs. Encourage the use of Closed Captioning as well.
