Dance Dance Revolution Keeping Kids Fit

West Virginia has been testing the use of Dance Dance Revolution dance video game in public schools and has found that it benefits children 7 to 12 and helps keep them fit.

Preliminary results from a 24-week study of 50 overweight or obese children, aged 7 to 12, showed that those who played the game at home for at least 30 minutes five days per week maintained their weight and saw a reduction in some risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.
