Dance Dance Revolution At School

 

Over a year ago, West Virginia announced plans to incorporate Dance Dance Revolution into the physical education curriculum in all of their 765 public schools. Today, the New York Times takes a look at their progress, with nearly all of the state’s 185 middle schools already outfitted with the obesity-battling leg-shaking simulator and the remainder of the 765 due to receive theirs by next year. While the article goes over the regular praise for exergaming— namely, getting sedentary kids off their do-nothing keisters — it’s a welcome update on one state’s ambitious plans. Huge bonus points to the first state that requires kids to play Devil May Cry with that DDR pad.
