SOPAC_BobbyBeetcutAbout Bobby Beetcut
Long awaited by parents and music lovers, Bobby Beetcut brings the experience of a true artist to the children’s market with messages of self-empowerment. Now, a common bond between mom/dad and daughter/son is formed through music with original songs that are bound to become classics with winning reviews from children to parents and grandparents. English Teacher and avid fan Cindy Katz comments, "One of the things I love about the album is that it makes my children reach. With great stories and advanced vocabulary, these songs help them expand. I truly enjoy his music and my kids love it too!”

SOPAC_KidvilleAbout Kidville Montclair
Kidville Montclair will be coming in to turn kids into superheroes! Parents and children are invited to participate in a mini-Superhero training camp in the SOPAC Loft. We will start the hour-long training camp with fun warm ups and superhero exercises. Children will then get to work on designing their own super-logos and masks to create their own superhero identity.
