Also, pre-recorded activities will available and include:
• New York City Children’s Theater invites children to travel virtually across the five boroughs and explore their five senses.
• The Cumbe Center for African and Diaspora Dance presents West African Adventures where kids can explore oral and movement traditions of traditional and contemporary cultures. Families can also play games and dance along with the Conga Kids, West African and Afro Caribbean drumming traditions.
• Rock and Roll Playhouse performs a program for the entire family to sing along and dance to from Rockefeller Center’s iconic Rainbow Room. They will also show families how to make a simple instrument, like a maraca, to continue the dancing fun all day long.
