What's the story?

DANCE TIME BOYS is a an series featuring the nephews of Sheila Escovedo, a.k.a Grammy-nominated drummer Sheila E., as they fulfill their mission to keep kids moving and grooving. It stars 8-year old cousins PB and Jam, who ride their scooters to different neighborhoods to show folks how fun it is to dance and sing. Even more fun is the fact that they do it in English and Spanish. 

Is it any good?

The energetic, kid-friendly series focuses on getting kids to get up, move around, and have fun. It's also a family affair, and features original music and choreography created and produced by members of the Escovedo family, whose generations of Latin Jazz and popular music performers are renown throughout the music industry.  

It's not the highest quality production, but the lyrics are easy for young children to sing along to, and the dance moves are fun and simple enough to follow, offering a positive way of showing young kids how to have a good time while establishing some healthy habits.
