Hayley is slightly infatuated with Curious George. She would watch it all day if I allowed her too. She also loves to dance and shake her booty to just about anything. I recently found out about a contest that is being sponsored by PBS kids where you can send it your kids dancing to the Curious George theme song. Here is some information:
Calling all parents! Does your child love Curious George? Do they love to dance? Have them show off their best monkey moves and exercise their creativity in the first-ever Curious George Dance Contest! During its sixth season on PBS KIDS®, the Curious George television series is featuring a special focus on the arts, including dance. Dance is a great way for kids to express themselves, and a fun way to exercise! Parents and guardians are NOW invited to enter a video of their child dancing to the Curious George theme song for a chance to be featured on a Curious George DVD! You might even win a visit from George himself! Whether your child likes to bop, shake, jump, twirl, or spin, we want to see how they boogie along with Curious George.
Now through April 2, 2012, parents and guardians of kids aged eight and under can send in videos of their child’s moves to CuriousGeorgeDanceContest.com. A panel of judges will choose ten finalists based on their creativity, enthusiasm, and originality. Then, starting April 16th through April 30th, George’s friends and fans–the public–will vote for the winner. All finalists will receive a Curiosity Kit, filled with a Curious George book, game, DVD, and other fun George merchandise. Contest entries will be accepted through April 2, 2012. For complete rules and regulations, and to submit your child’s video, visit CuriousGeorgeDanceContest.com.
“We love to see how kids are inspired by George’s contagious curiosity and unending enthusiasm,” says Senior Vice President of Animation Production for Universal Studios Family Productions Ellen Cockrill. “Through movement and dance, kids can be creative, curious, and may even discover a new passion or artistic outlet. We’re excited to see what kids come up with.”
**** Parents and guardians are invited to enter a video of their child dancing to the Curious George theme song for a chance to be featured on a Curious George DVD. They might even win a visit from George himself! A panel of judges will review the video submissions and pick 10 finalists. Enthusiasm, creativity and originality are key! Contest ends April 2nd.
Hayley and I are getting ready to submit her famous dance routine. I sure hope we win!!! It would light up her life to meet Curious George in person!! Winners will receive their submitted video to be seen on a Curious George DVD. They will also receive a Curious George Curiousity kit seen below.
