As someone who has a child in elementary school, I know how much my daughter and other children get out of Music class every week. I also know that school budgets don’t always provide adequate funding for those programs. New musical instruments can be very expensive and money often times goes to other things. That’s why I was excited to hear about Ubisoft teaming up with the VH1 Save the Music Foundation to start a campaign for kids to try and win new musical instruments for their school.
As part of the program, players can record themselves busting a move (that’s what that’s called, right?) in Just Dance 2016 for a chance to be featured in the game. And for every submission they receive, Ubisoft will donate $1 to the VH1 Save the Music program. All of the proceeds will go towards a grant that will select one lucky school to receive brand new musical instruments as well as a package that includes a television, game console and copies of Just Dance 2016!
Here’s what you need to do to enter:
- Record yourself dancing to a specific song and submit your clip to the community remix.
- Craft a short description of why music and dance is so important to your school.
- Post your story on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtags #JustDanceContest and #SaveTheMusic
- Stay tuned to see if your school wins!
Submissions are accepted until December 9th and you can find more information at www.justdancegame.com/savethemusic
It really is an awesome contest and it’s cool to see music programs in school getting some much needed attention. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go work on my Whip and then brush up a little on my Nae Nae.
