Disney’s Aladdin North American touring production has a community program called “Get Up and Go” that promotes fun ways kids can lead healthier lifestyles through dance, inspired by the show’s choreography and music.

Aladdin cast members Celina Nightengale, Karlee Ferreira, Michael Graceffa and Michael Everett visited Edgewater Elementary School on May 11 to get the kids’ blood pumping as they learned a signature combination from the show as a way of encouraging kids to embrace physical fitness and good nutrition.

“With the Get Up and Go Program, we get to show kids that you don’t have to hate exercise, and you can have fun dancing and be healthy at the same time,” Ferreira said.

The class’ teacher at Edgewater Elementary School is Kathy Nightengale — Celina’s mother. “Exercise gives the gives the kids an outlet away from the classroom, and it helps to develop their minds in different ways,” Kathy Nightengale said.
