Learn the Thriller Line Dance

A good friend of mine recently told me that some of the best advice they ever received was to make sure that you always had your objective in mind. “Don’t lost sight of your objective,” they said to me. It seems very simple, but you might be surprised how hard it is to stay true to your objective.

Livingactive.me has not been a consistent blog. As a result, the objective of the blog has been inconsistent.

The objective of Livingactive.me is to create smiles, provoke thought, and inspire movement in people.

Some of the posts on Livingactive.me have focused on the objective more than others. This post has a meaning that directly correlates with the objective of Livingactive.me.

This post exists because of people reaching out and asking for it. Not just one or two, or even a few…but a bunch of people. The people that reached out were all teachers, and they wanted an easy way to teach their kids (pre K-12) a Thriller Line Dance. They wanted this post to happen to help kids live active. BOOM! Objective in mind, I created what they asked for.

In short, I trust that you are happy, healthy, and active. My belief is that the two videos above will not only teach a simple line dance to Thriller, but create smiles and movement in everyone that participates.

Happy Halloween, and thank for #Livingactive.
