Our family loved Sesame Street Live: Let’s Dance.  The performance was held Thursday, January 22, 2015 at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis.  Hosted by two live performers, we enjoyed the interactive experience, complete with frequent dance parties with Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie and friends.  There were kids of all ages, parents, and grandparents.

We arrived about 15 minutes early and easily found street parking right in front of the venue.  My husband and I brought our newborn and our three year old.  The staff was very friendly and directed us where to go.  Bathrooms were on a different floor than the show, and were very crowded with moms looking for

Concessions were available in the lobby or from vendors walking around the isles.  Be ready to buy your child an $8 Elmo balloon!  Cotton candy, chips and beverages were all $5/each.  

The show was 90 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.  The energy was great, and the hosts and the characters immediately captured everyone’s attention.  Throughout the show there were opportunities for kids to dance along to a variety of songs from traditional nursery rhymes such as Itsy Bitsy Spider and Wheels on the bus to Mr. Roboto by Styx.  My daughter loved how the characters danced in the isles with the audience.  It was a very loud and exciting environment that offered something for everyone.  We really enjoyed the show and would definitely see it again.
