The Ellen DeGeneres Show #GimmeFive Dance Challenge

Posted By Colleen Dougherty, NC Recreation & Park Association, Thursday, March 19, 2015

This past Monday, March 16th, Ellen DeGeneres hosted First Lady Michelle Obama on her hilariously entertaining talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show.  Michelle went on to explain the #GimmeFive challenge and how celebrities, such as Beyoncé, Ryan Seacrest, Hugh Jackman and the astronauts on the international space shuttle have posted on social media ways they are leading a healthy life.

After the interview, Ellen and Michelle took center stage and proceeded to dance the official #GimmeFive Dance Challenge Campaign! After the dance, Ellen and Michelle challenged people across the nation to learn the dance and post it Ellentube.(Submit:
