PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Elmo’s got the moves. Have you got the moves? Get up and get moving with Elmo, Abby Cadabby, and everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends when Sesame Street Live “Let’s Dance!” visits the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC) from Friday, April 1 through Sunday, April 3, 2016. Tickets for all seven performances are on sale now.

Hosted by two live performers, Sesame Street Live “Let’s Dance!” offers an up-close, interactive experience like you’ve never experienced before! You, the audience, are invited to dance as all of your favorite Sesame Street friends join you on the floor – dancing with fans of all ages! In addition to ongoing dance parties, Elmo uses his imagination to "Do the Robot," Cookie Monster teaches all ‘feets’ to dance, and Ernie shares the fun of dance with the Sesame Street favorite “Shake Your Head One Time.”

Like television’s Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production features timeless tunes and lessons for all ages. The universal appeal of each Broadway-quality musical production continues long after preschool.
