Canada’s best-selling, chart-topping children’s music group MINI POP KIDS have expanded their highly engaging online library of fun, family-friendly content with the release of their newest music video PLUS additional daily content designed to keep fans entertained, moving, and feeling part of a community during stay-at-home practices.
The MINI POP KIDS’ newest music video to the chart-topping track “Dance Monkey” shows the ensemble alongside more than 65 of their dancer friends from across Canada together on ‘home stages’ performing ZOOM-style.
It’s a sign of the times and MINI POP KIDS have risen to the occasion: The members of the Canadian pop supergroup — who range in ages 11 – 14 years old — have transformed coat closets into makeshift recording studios, living rooms into virtual stages, and called on family to ‘direct’ videos and handle cameras, all to create ever-new digital concert-like content — complete with music, fitness and music for everyone to enjoy.
This week, the brand launched Episode One of their innovative and inclusive DANCE @ HOME program. In it, dance enthusiasts of all ages and abilities are invited to grab a “microphone” — think: hairbrush! TV remote! — and join MPK choreographer Jamie Hodgins (Ariana Grande, Madonna, Demi Lovato) in the step-by-step online choreography class for the MINI POP KIDS LIVE stage routine with their take on Shawn Mendes’ “If I Can’t Have You.”
The DANCE @ HOME program signals the MINI POP KIDS’ unparalleled ability to gather and connect with fans nationwide, no matter the style of stage; with already over 100+ dance studios across the country signed up to participate, the weekly episodes are part of a larger, ongoing stream of at-home dance and fitness tutorials, as well as other ‘brain breaks’ on their YouTube channel in an effort to keep fans entertained during ‘stay-at-home’ practices.
And since their recent west coast Canadian tour leg was unfortunately nixed due to COVID-19, the members of MINI POP KIDS are joining fans online every weekday at 4:00 pm EST via Facebook and Instagram to perform, host Q&A sessions, and interview previous members.
They’re even giving tips on how to audition so that at-home fans can shoot their shot to become part of the MINI POP KIDS too!
Young fans can also dress like their favourite MINI POPster all from the comfort of their home: MINI POP KIDS launched a clothing line with Walmart Canada this Spring, featuring apparel and accessories in sizes 4 XS – 16 XL. This season’s ‘Rock Star’ collection features light, bright pastel palettes paired with iridescent sequins and light blue denim for girls, and vibrant pops of colourful graphics with black denim for boys and is available at Walmart.ca
