So how exactly did this fun dance-off come about?
Well, Michelle explained, “In honor of the fifth anniversary [of the Let’s Move campaign] I’ve issued this challenge. We’re calling it #GimmeFive and we’re using the hashtag #GimmeFive on social media. We’re asking folks all across the country to #GimmeFive ways their leading a healthy life.”
“We’re gonna take over the Easter Egg Roll this year with a #GimmeFive dance, and actually the So You Think You Can Dance all-stars are coming to the Easter Egg Roll to teach the whole South Lawn this dance,” Michelle went on.
“I have actually challenged this woman right here to learn the #GimmeFive dance,” Michelle said pointing to Ellen!
They hit the dance floor and Ellen told Michelle, “You’ve rehearsed it, you’ve practiced it and it’s part of the Let’s Move campaign. It’s important to move. It’s important to dance.”
We honestly don’t know who won the dance off because both Michelle and Ellen hit every move and looked awesome on that stage!
