Dance Dance Revolution Helps Schools to Fight Obesity

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:07 pm

Dance Dance Revolution has become a cult favorite in local arcades and on beach boardwalks, but it will soon have a new home in West Virginia public schools. The state, which holds the unfortunate title of one of the fattest in America, hopes it will encourage students to start exercising.

A test program was successful in 20 schools last spring. The state’s 157 middle schools will be the first to get the game, with hopes that all 753 public schools would have Dance Dance Revolution in use by 2008.

School officials say that it is not meant to replace gym or health classes, but they hope it reaches those that may dislike those activities.
