The entertainment software industry is proud to team up with the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition to help the nation's youth lead healthier, more active lifestyles! The Active Play PALA Challenge is a collaborative effort between the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and its member companies and the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN). It will strive to harness the excitement surrounding active video games to provide a long-term, sustainable approach in establishing healthy lifestyles by making video game screen time truly "active." Active gaming is a great way to work towards earning your Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA+), and PALA+ is a great tool to motivate and track activity levels to help you live a healthier lifestyle. As an active video game, Nickelodeon Dance is a great choice to help fulfill your PALA+ goals!
Nickelodeon Dance is the first dance video game that allows players to move and groove with Dora, Diego, The Backyardigans, and The Fresh Beat Band. Gamers big and small will stay active by twisting, tapping, shimmying and shaking to classic hits and Nickelodeon favorites like "We Did It," "Al Rescate," "Yeti Stomp," and "Here We Go", all sung by Nickelodeon characters. The game includes family-friendly dance routines developed in collaboration with an Emmy®-recognized children's dance choreographer, and a special Workout section where fancy footwork becomes fitness fun!
PALA+ is the next phase of PALA (Presidential Active Lifestyle Award), a program of the President's Challenge, designed to motivate Americans to make physical activity and healthy eating part of their everyday life. The physical activity requirements for Nickelodeon Dance are outlined in the Nickelodeon Dance Workout Regime Below.
The nutrition component requires participants to add a weekly healthy eating goal and build upon these goals throughout the six week-period.
Individuals who achieve the physical activity and healthy eating goals will receive a certificate signed by PCFSN Co-chairs and are able to purchase a certificate signed by the President of the United States!Click here to join the Active Play PALA Challenge
