Billy B.

  • About the Artist:

    A Billy B. show is kinetic learning – from mimicking the slide of tectonic plates with legitimate “moon walking” to pretending to be photosynthesizing leaves, Billy B. and kids all over the country have sung and danced their way to a better understanding of the natural world. A veteran artist who has appeared in nearly all 50 U.S. states, Billy B. has performed at such venues as Wolf Trap Farm Park Theater in the Woods, The Kennedy Center, and The Smithsonian Institution, and at museums and conferences across the country.
