indexAs 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:

  1. Record yourself dancing to a specific song and submit your clip to the community remix.
  2. Craft a short description of why music and dance is so important to your school.
  3. Post your story on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtags #JustDanceContest and #SaveTheMusic
  4. Stay tuned to see if your school wins!

Submissions are accepted until December 9th and you can find more information at

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.
