The students of Memorial Middle School received a surprise during their physical education classes Monday.
Instead of shuttle runs or playing basketball, teachers from Gotta Dance Ohio showed them how dancing can be a different and fun way to stay in shape.
You can see video of the volunteers from Gotta Dance teaching the students on the Mentor Schools web site.
This seemingly unusual curriculum is actually the result of changes that the Ohio Department of Education made to physical education standards.
In addition to the workout they got dancing, the students will have a chance to flex their creative and collaborative muscles when they work in groups to choreograph their own dance routines.
