4  Choose the correct answer.  

When our parents were teenagers, they walked a lot and rode bicycles. They also dance quite well. So what is different with teenagers today? They   do all these things, but they choose to spend a lot of time indoors. Teenagers   spend too many hours in front of a TV or computer. It’s unhealthy. But not all teenagers enjoy exercising or doing sport. What   do instead? Dance hip-hop! It’s good for your heart and muscles and it’s fun. You   buy any special equipment for hip-hop. But you  wear good shoes and you  put on excellent music! Also, you   forget to drink a lot when you dance hip-hop. Try it!
