“Robot House Party” is a family friendly online livestream event that transforms your living room into a robot costume workshop and a dance party. Build your own robot costume while Kid Koala spins a live DJ set! Robot costumes can be constructed with materials you already have at home. Anything from cardboard boxes to aluminum foil can be used to help your robot come to life. Once the costumes are done and slipped on, it’s time to dance to the music of Kid Koala as he is accompanied by guest dancers. This livestream event invites people of all ages to channel their creativity and break it down on the dance floor!
