"I'm dead!" one boy exclaimed after performing the "Cupid Shuffle" with his classmates and returning to sit on the floor, which was marked with tape to space the students a part for the popular line dance song. The youngsters in the venerable northern Berkeley County school joined near nearly 100,000 students at about 700 public schools across West Virginia who shuffled their way to a healthy heart on Thursday by simultaneously performing the dance, which coincided with the launch of the West Virginia Physical Activity Plan.  "At this level, we still have to have fun," said Marlowe Elementary Principal Amanda Stevens.
