Live children’s music has returned to Symphony Space, but with a twist. While the performers are on stage inside the venue, their concerts are conducted via livestream (for free!) to family audiences around the world. We’re all hoping for a return to normalcy and this compromise allows “Just Kidding Kids” to deliver its eclectic agenda of artists.
The oldest resident Native American dance company in New York, the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers, pays a visit on Saturday, January 29, at 11 AM. The troupe was founded in 1963 by a group of ten Native American men and women (all New Yorkers) descended from Mohawk, Hopi, Winnebago, and San Blas tribes. They are keeping alive the traditions, songs, and dances learned from their parents, while added to their repertoire from other Native Americans living in New York as well as others who were passing through.
