KIDZ BOP Workshop – Frequently Asked Questions

What is the KIDZ BOP Workshop?

  • This 4.5 hour workshop is for 6-12 year old kids of all skill levels, who love to dance, sing, and perform.
  • Taught by official KIDZ BOP choreographers and vocal coaches, kids will learn dance moves from the KIDZ BOP live show and their latest music videos, and learn vocal techniques using popular KIDZ BOP songs.
  • KIDZ BOP Workshop will also focus on performance and auditioning skills, where kids will practice dancing in front of a camera.
  • At the end of the day, the young performers will have the opportunity to film a video showing off their best choreography alongside the KIDZ BOP Kids!

Who should attend this workshop?

  • Boys and girls age 6-12 who love to dance, sing and perform.
  • All skill levels of both dance and vocal training are welcome. Some dance training is a plus, but no prior vocal training is needed. All vocals will be completed as a group.
  • Kids who are interested in working commercially and want to gain performance, on-camera and auditioning skills.

What level of experience is required?

All levels of experience are welcome. While some dance training is a plus, this workshop focuses on performance techniques for all levels of young dancers, singers and performers.

Is there an age restriction?

6 years old is the youngest age that can attend the workshop. We have designed the workshop for 6-12 year olds due to the length of the workshop (4.5 hours) and the fact that the workshop is not currently split into age groups.
