With a mix of Miss Nina originals and traditional children's songs, little ones will have a fun time clapping, stomping, shaking, dancing, and wiggling with Miss Nina. Hip-hop and rap tunes are a part of every show, notably a Miss Nina fan-favorite "Up & Down," and the song frequently heard on SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live, “The Brown Bear Rap.” For this, Miss Nina brings out a giant version of Bill Martin’s beloved book, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" 

While there’s plenty of jumping and moving, Miss Nina’s Solo Show has an up-close-and-personal feel that fans of The Miss Nina Weekly Video Show will love. At these solo performances, Miss Nina always includes songs from her video show, along with songs from her albums. A favorite is “Three Little Fishies,” made famous by The Andrew Sisters, in which Miss Nina gives kids ways to clap and move along with the “boop boop dittem dattem whattem choo!” parts, to the delight of all. Following the high-energy, Meghan Trainor-esque, doo-wop “Freeze Dance,” everyone is ready to catch their breath. Out comes the easel and another giant book (perhaps Jane Yolen’s How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? or Anna Dewdney’s Llama Llama Red Pajama for example) for another “book song,” as the show winds down – and then the peppy “Goodbye Everybody”  to leave everyone on a high note.
