The "Be Kind Dance Challenge" sweeps the Valley

In a world with so much negativity and violence, there's a new movement to make kindness go viral.
The group called the 'Be Kind Crew' is using the universal movement of dance to make that happen.
The group hopes to fill the internet and social media with videos of people dancing and they are asking everyone to join their effort.
FOX 10's Marcy Jones took the "Be Kind Dance Challenge".
It's a simple concept that has a rippling effect: spread kindness to others and in turn they'll pass on the love. That is what the "Be Kind People Project" is all about.
"It really blew my mind, I mean we knew we were making a difference, we can see it right there when we're do a school  assembly you can see the change happen."
Spokesperson Sarah Kent says the program focuses on teaching children what to do rather than what not to do.
"Kids are told what not to do all the time, and we want to empower them to make the right choices and to treat each other better and so then they learn how good it feels to treat each other with respect."
Members of the "BKPP" travel to schools around the country teaching their signature dance routine.
"It's just really great to just see their lives being impacted on such a simple level like kindness."
Even the smallest members leave a big impression like 13-year-old Myson.
"It just makes me feel really great that I can help that and spread a positive message you know how old are you."
With their original video raking up the views on social media they're challenging everyone to do the dance and spread the message.
The "Be Kind Dance Challenge" is already trending on Twitter with people posting their videos of them doing the dance.
If you'd like to join, use the hashtag #BeKindDanceChallenge when posting your videos.
And share the video with FOX 10 with the hashtag #fox10phoenix.
