Weekend Kids’ Pick

On Friday, August 12, The Ohmies and The Bed Stuy Veterans perform a free interactive concert at the East River Park. Beginning at 11am, children participate in musical adventures focusing on movement and physical activity.  The Ohmies stress emotional and social development, helping children learn to identify their feelings, make friends, resolve conflicts, get along with their siblings, and deal with anxiety. The Bed Stuy Veterans are a dance group that performs an Afro-Caribbean freestyle dance called brukup, which utilizes a series of pantomime-like moves that evokes break dancing, raving and butoh in equal parts.
