GEMS Heritage Indian School hosted Indian rap artist Blaaze to celebrate Children's Day - which is usually commemorated on November 14 in India.
During the visit, the singer and GEMS Education launched a dance-challenge video performed by students as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge.
In addition to creating a special rap song for the initiative, Blaaze also performed with more than 400 students from GEMS Heritage Indian School and GEMS New Millennium School.
He also conducted a three-hour rap music and creative writing workshop for students to help them tell their own story and experiences through music.
GEMS Education vice president and brand/curriculum leader Darryl Bloud said: "In this unique concept, GEMS Heritage Indian School and The New Millennium School are pleased to have Bollywood Rapper, Blaaze work his rap around creating a unique form of aerobics which will now be the foundation of all exercise routines in our schools. This is fitness at its best."
Blaaze added: "I think the 30x30 challenge is an amazing initiative and the concept of spending 30 minutes of your day, every day, engaging in a physical activity will subconsciously help people get into a healthy lifestyle. When I heard about this, I personally found it very exciting and wanted to be an active part in spreading the fitness message. I want children to understand the concept better through music and dance, which is why I created a rap anthem."
