About this Event
Join us and celebrate the end of the school year and all of our incredible learners who are RISING as they grow in their communities and at NMAAHC. The Alphabet Rockers will be joining us from Oakland, California, for an exciting day of music and dance!

PreK Program | 0-5 years old | (11:00am-12:00pm)
Little ones and their adults are invited to join us for a morning of music and dance with the Alphabet Rockers, who will share an engaging, preschool appropriate program teaching elements of beatboxing, hip hop dance, and self-identity celebration. Registration is required and will open on June 1.

About the Alphabet Rockers: The Alphabet Rockers are a multi-racial, intergenerational hip hop crew, with 10 years of experience performing for kids ages 5-10. Led by Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd, their mission is to inspire American kids to stand up to hate and be their brave and beautiful selves. The Alphabet Rockers appeal to a broad audience with lyrics like “I will stand up for you” and “I shine in my beautiful skin.” Alphabet Rockers’ music, videos, concerts and curriculum are designed by an intercultural team of anti-bias thought leaders, educators, artists, parents and young people of all genders. Their work sparks an intergenerational conversation about the world and engages young change-makers and their adult allies in positive solutions. The Alphabet Rockers reached 300,000 kids and families last year while touring their most recent GRAMMY-nominated 2018 Best Children’s Album, “Rise Shine #Woke.”
