The SeaStar Rock Show
The SeaStar Rock live show is an interactive musical performance for children 10 years and under, promoting marine sustainability through song, dance and games. The main aim is for children to sing along, dance, learn about the marine life , sustainability and of course have fun! It is perfect for schools, playgroups and festivals and can be adapted for any function. Children will join in games such as ‘Seaweed Shelters’ and ‘Wally and Polly's Orders’ and hear jokes from the SeaStar Rock team. They’ll cha cha with Chino Crabclaw, tap dance with Terrance Turtle, and dance the waves with Surfing Snapping Starfish, as he saves the seas from plastic bag monsters. Big Blue Bopping Whale will be bopping at the Underwater Fish Cafe, whilst Harriet Hammer Shark sings her ‘Shark Grin’ tips at the Icy Pole Studios. If you’re looking for an action packed underwater adventure, with educational flair, come and join the SeaStar Rockers because " just below those ocean waves there's a storming dancing party!"
Included in the performance is a copy of the SeaStar Rock Album and the song lyrics for the children to enjoy throughout the year. Teachers will also receive an educational activity booklet which could be used to support the New Australian Curriculum, in particular, Sustainability, The 7 General Capabilities with links to The Arts, English and Science. SeaStar Rock also supports the five Learning Outcomes of The Early Years Learning Framework.
