"A sweatless Beyoncé Knowles appears in a new workout video in support of Michelle Obama's campaign against childhood obesity that was released late Tuesday."
"The Grammy-winning singer rewrote her single "Get Me Bodied" for the video, titled "Move Your Body." The high-energy song forms the rhythm for a "flash workout" that combines hip hop, Latin and dancehall moves with traditional exercises such as running and jumping rope. For effect, it is set--where else--in a school cafeteria."
"The video is set to roll out in schools on May 3 during a "dance-in" at middle schools across the country."

"What we want to do is make it fun," Beyoncé said in a preview video released earlier this month.
"In the opening shots of the new video children in a lunch line choose from a palette of fruits and vegetables, an obvious nod to the healthy eating choices Mrs. Obama has encouraged in her campaign. Next, an unfortunate boy loses a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors (Paper covered Rock.)"
"Spontaneously, a chubby kid catches a beat. A slimmer kids joins him. The crowd splits. Then a curly-headed Beyoncé marches knees-up out of the kitchen donning her megawatt smile. Clad in a loose white blouse, shorts that might give an administrator palpitations, and bright green knee-high socks, she launches into a series of exercises that lean decidedly cardio."
"The video ends on a patriotic note. Before the cool down, the final dance is "wave the American flag."
"An earlier version of this post misstated the video's connection to Mrs. Obama's campaign against childhood obesity. While the video supports the campaign, the White House was not involved in it or in the "dance-in" planned for middle schools."
