DALLAS- Why in the world would anyone want to wake up at the crack of dawn to Jazzercise? Well, a few Mayors did just that, busting a move on the new Continental Avenue Bridge.

“I have to admit I wasn`t expecting to do that much dancing, so I will be feeling it in the next two hours,” Fairburn, Ga. Mario Avery said.

That`s right, we’ve got all the big-city mayors in Big D. The city is hosting the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Attendees include the likes of Bill de Blasio Mayor of New York City, and L.A Mayor Eric Garcetti.

More than 200-city leaders came to talk about problems their cities face.

“Keeping our kids fit is obviously an issue with every mayor across this country. The future of our citizens and our kids make sure they are educated right,” Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said.

The City of Dallas got a check for $25,000 to go to the Mayor`s youth fitness initiative. It`s good to see these leaders working out for a great cause, normally when we see politicians sweating its not good news.
