Little Rock, Ark. (May 15, 2012) — Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield invites members to Dance and Discover at the Museum of Discovery. If you carry an Arkansas Blue Cross, Health Advantage or BlueAdvantage Administrators of Arkansas health plan ID card, you can show it at the door of the Museum on Saturday, June 9, and enjoy free admission to the Museum and a family-friendly Dance and Discover party featuring Radio Disney from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Dance and Discover Party is a health-and-fitness event designed for children ages 3-12, although kids of all ages are welcome. Kids can decorate their own “hip hop” hat, and have a blast with Radio Disney as they turn up the music and get kids moving … Disney style.

In the Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield Amazing You Gallery, kids and parents can not only explore, but participate in a “Dance and Discover” activity focused on staying healthy. Kids can enjoy a healthy snack in the GigaBite room, register for door prizes, and have their picture made with BlueAnn Ewe, Arkansas Blue Cross’ health ambassador.

“At Arkansas Blue Cross, we know it is important to begin educating kids on good health habits early,” said Karen Raley, vice president of Communications. “Dance and Discover is an opportunity for our members to engage their children in learning more about how their bodies work and how to keep them functioning properly. Helping families stay healthy is part of our mission and this event is a fun, interactive way to learn about how building healthy habits into your lifestyle helps keep you ‘amazing.’”

“Health science is an important component to the Museum, as it is one of our permanent galleries,” said Nan Selz, executive director for the Museum of Discovery. “We invite visitors to discover how the human body works and how choices for a healthy, active lifestyle keep their bodies running better,” she added.

Members simply show their health plan ID card (Arkansas Blue Cross, Health Advantage or BlueAdvantage) at the door of the Museum of Discovery, sign in and enjoy free admission to the Museum on June 9. A health plan ID card from Arkansas Blue Cross, Health Advantage or BlueAdvantage is needed for each adult to receive free admission.

Dance and Discover activities are free and will be held from 11 a.m until 2 p.m.; crafts and snacks are available while supplies last. Door prizes will be awarded at the end of the Dance and Discover Party; registrants do not need to be present to win.
