How do you get kids all around the country to get moving,  jumping, and doing the dougie in unison? Beyonce, natch.

On May 3 last year—at 1: 42 p.m. to be exact—nearly 600 schools from coast to coast participated in a flash workout, dancing together to Beyonce’s “Move Your Body.” First Lady Michelle Obama even got in on the fun, joining students at Alice Deal Middle School in Washington, D.C. for their rendition of the “Move Your Body” dance. Check it out.

Schools will lead students in the same dance again today to mark the one-year anniversary of the nationwide flash workout.
