Performer keeps kids’ feet tapping in Warr Acres

/> Kelly Biel brought her 3-year-old son, Vance, and her nephew, Roman, to the performance. At first Vance was skeptical about performing with the band, too, but Biel encouraged him and he ended up having a great time.

"We’ll definitely come back next time,” Biel said.

Christy Blue joined her 4-year-old daughter and 3-year-old twins, who danced as Cosgrove sang humorous songs about stinky feet and dinosaurs wearing underwear.

"It was a great time,” Blue said. "I couldn’t help tapping along, too.”

Cosgrove’s concert was infused with valuable lessons such as not littering, not making fun of people and being patient with adults.

At the end of Cosgrove’s performance, Alyssa and Kendra both were clapping their hands and chiming in from the front row of the audience. Their golden pigtails flopped up and down as they jumped with the music during a song about peanut butter.

Their grandmother, Sandy Dean, laughed and clapped from her seat.

"I think it’s really important that they learn some rhythm and learn to express themselves,” Dean said.
