The first phase of the program features the Tony Award-winning choreography from Disney's Newsies. Cast members have been visiting participating schools, leading students in conversations about making healthy food choices, and teaching actual dance sequences from the show.
"Get Up and Go" will expand nationally with the onset of the recently announced Newsies National Tour in the fall of 2014. Programs in select cities will be announced at a later date. The program will expand to include sessions from The Lion King and Aladdin in 2015.
