Children’s artists Princess Katie and Racer Steve are all set to get their audience dancing and singing next Thursday, July 15th in Union Square. The free concert, part of the city’s ongoing Summer in the Square series, will begin at noon. The duo will perform with their drummer, Crash, and bassist, Space.
Princess Katie and Racer Steve were Session II 2009 finalists for their entry, “Clelia’s Party,” an upbeat song about the titular character’s Latin fiesta. By the end of the song, listeners will have learned the names of three types of dances – the Cha Cha Cha, the Samba, and the Mambo – as well as a whole menu of foreign dishes, such as Tostadas and Arroz con Pollo (yum!). “Clelia’s Party,” in addition to being just plain fun, helps further children’s knowledge by teaching them about the wonders that other cultures have to offer.
For those interested in attending Princess Katie and Racer Steve’s performance on 7/15/10, be sure to get there early in order to get a great viewing spot. No need to be worried if you get there too early; there will be a “Mommy & Me” yoga program at 10:00 AM in the playground.
Got a great children’s song of your own? in Session II of the 2010 contest!
