Dance Dance Revolution has been getting kids off the couch for years now, and Konami's hoping it can help bring attention to childhood obesity. They're hosting a Childhood Obesity Summit in West Virginia later this month, and a DDR tournament is on the schedule.

"The popularity of Dance Dance Revolution in West Virginia is reshaping our youths' mindset regarding what constitutes physical activity," said West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin. "I am proud of the positive impact Dance Dance Revolution is having on family time with children and adults across the state."

It will take place July 27th and 28th at the Embassy Suites in Charleston.
