All The Way Live!
All The Way Live!

Get more info about this event »

Description: Anything can come to life with a beat, a rhythm and a rhyme. Watch as world-renowned artists Paige Hernandez and Baye Harrell use hip-hop elements to “remix” lessons on creativity, respect, understanding, cooperation, effort and self-care. All The Way Live!, co-commissioned by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, uses an audience-powered boom box to help children tune into the frequency of positive thoughts and feelings. This highly-interactive experience gives young people tools to “broadcast” their best selves and the power to control what they “receive” and “transmit.” For families with children, ages 5 to 12. Tickets are $11-$25. Submitted by: Madi Schulz Lied Center of Kansas
