DANCE 10000, Generation Pep’s step-counting dance video

Watch more with these video collections:

How many steps do you take in one day? In Dance 10000, nine-year-old Lilyana Ilunga clocks 10,000 steps by walking, running, and dancing her way to school, as well as fast-forwarding through a few thousand steps in the school gym.

Dance 10000 is part of a health campaign by Generation Pep, a Swedish nonprofit founded by the Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden. Their goal: Get kids moving. The 10,000 steps are a daily rallying goal, but any increase in daily activity is good. From the Mayo Clinic:

The average American walks 3,000 to 4,000 steps a day, or roughly 1.5 to 2 miles. It’s a good idea to find out how many steps a day you walk now, as your own baseline. Then you can work up toward the goal of 10,000 steps by aiming to add 1,000 extra steps a day every two weeks.

Lilyana Ilunga - dance 10000
The daughter of former pro soccer player HΓ©rita N’Kongolo Ilunga, Lilyana has been dancing since she was little. The step-counting moves are by French choreographer and dancer Sabrina Lonis. From GenerationPep.se:

β€œI can relate very easily to the story of this young girl who can’t help moving around and dancing. I’m very unhappy when I can’t dance, especially these days”, said Lilyana Ilunga…

The music in the video is a new version of the 2007 hit song D.A.N.C.E. by French EDM duo Justice, made specifically for the video. Adding to that, one of the band’s members, Gaspard AugΓ©, makes an unexpected surprise cameo appearance as the school janitor.
