Media Advisory: Groove is in the heart of Toronto Kids' Tuesdays|
| || ||
Toronto Kids' Tuesdays presented by Scotiabank is a four-week, interactive kids
program at Nathan Phillips Square. These free lunchtime mini-festivals explore
fun themes with music and activities allowing kids to create and play. Toronto
Kids' Tuesdays run Tuesdays between July 22 and August 12 between 11 a.m. to 1
Dance Fever will get a kid's bootie shaking. Dance troupe Street Feet will
perform hip-hop style dancing before pulling participants out of the crowd to
learn a few moves. Street Feet offers a dance class and performance that
incorporates elements of hip-hop, breakdance, funk and more. Created by Elayne
Laken and Jaime Wilson, Street Feet launched in January of this year. Street
Feet are a family-oriented troupe. Their interactive performances are open to
all age groups. They utilize the innocence of beats and movement in hip-hop to
entertain kids in an affirmative and positive manner.
The Disco Bus will be on the Square providing up-and-coming divas a place to
practice their vocals. Glitter balls, disco lights and feather boas are sure to
set the mood. A musical game of giant Twister will be fun for all.
Kids are also invited to join an extra special guest at this week's installment
of Toronto Kids' Tuesdays. Sesame Street's Elmo will show the audience how to
sing and dance the Hokey-Pokey at 11 a.m. Elmo is preparing to help set the
first Guinness World Record for the "Largest Hokey-Pokey Song and Dance
Routine" on Monday, August 25 at the CNE.
