Want to hear a secret? I LOVE to dance, and grew doing ballet, tap, jazz and lyrical. I enjoyed that it provided me with a great form of exercise on a weekly basis and helped to give me self-confidence. So of course I am excited to share a fun contest from Blue Cross Blue Shield highlighting some young and amazing dancers from across Michigan!
Through a unique Instagram contest, youth dance teams and individuals across Michigan shared their best moves for a chance to perform with the Mob Squad, the Detroit Pistons youth hip-hop dance squad sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. The videos are loaded and ready for your votes through Feb. 27, and they are so fun to watch!
The five videos with the most votes will be named semifinalists, advance to the final round and enter a new, one-minute dance video to compete for the top prize. Blue Cross and the Mob Squad will review the entries and select the winner based on creativity, energy and technical skill. The winner will be announced on AHealthierMichigan.org on March 4.
#MIKidsCanDance supports Blue Cross’ ongoing commitment to children’s health and its#MIKidsCan campaign – an initiative focused on encouraging kids to adopt healthy habits early in life that are more likely to be carried into adulthood. Pretty cool stuff, right?!
Visit here to vote and support the young movers and shakers across Michigan. I’ll bet you’ll want your own dance party after watching these!
