Homewood, IL—The five-time AAU Junior Olympics gold medal-winning Panthers JumpRope Team have released a new jump rope video in support ofFirst Lady Michelle Obama’sGet Fit Campaign. The video features jumping, music and dancing fromiconic recording artist Beyonce and her “Move Your Body” song, also written for the Obama Campaign to prevent childhood obesity.
“I was so inspired by Michelle Obama and the Let’s Move Initiative that I wanted to contribute. Thankful for the idea to do jump rope, jumping is another avenue to fight against childhood obesity. We would be honored if given the opportunity to jump at the White House,” says Joyce Dickerson, Founder.
The Panthers teamed up with the nationally-ranked Jumpin’ Allstars double Dutch squad to produce the video along with former National Grand Champion jumper Nick Woodard. The group choreographed a jaw-dropping routine of jumps, flips and twists that dazzled their live audience of family, friends, community members and elected officials convened at Homewood-Flossmoor High School.
“The Panthers offer youth the opportunity to maintain their health and improve their life skills during the most critical years of development,” says Joyce Dickerson.
Best of Luck to the Pink Panthers Double Dutch Team !!!
