School Assemblies and Residencies
Title: Respect the Rhythm
Target Audience: Pre-K - Grade 6
Running Time: 45-50 minutes
During his 18-year career, award-winning kid rocker Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove has performed for thousands of students at hundreds of schools throughout the United States. He’s also facilitated assemblies at Department of Defense schools in Germany, Italy, England, and Spain.
Cosgrove engages students through music to help them identify and honor their personal rhythm during his Character Education programs. He encourages students to express personal rhythm in everyday activities such as homework, music, and sports while emphasizing respect for the rhythm of others and the earth. His approach is high energy and interactive – he selects dozens of students from the audience to perform on stage as a way to demonstrate self expression and positive audience participation skills.
Mr. Stinky Feet is a master at delivering motivating messages about respect, self-discipline and healthy choices.
- “I have never had a presenter, like Jim, who could keep the children’s undivided attention for the entire program. We love “Mr. Stinky Feet.” (K.L., School Principal, Shawnee Mission, KS)
- “Thank you for the fun and joy you’re bringing to our daily routine, which is especially important with all that’s going on in the world today. Your music is “contagious” and I have gladly infected my friends and family with it.” (S.G., Parent and Teacher, Kansas City, MO)
- “Your style and the ease with which you interact with kids and adults alike is amazing. You brought so many kids out of their shells today that rarely come out with strangers. Truly a testament to your talent. We LOVED the show....you just ROCK!” (Ms. Diggs, Great Beginnings Preschool)
- “You picked me to go up on stage, and I just wanted to tell you that you really helped me with my rep, because most people make fun of my weight. So you could say you’re kind of my hero. After I got off that stage everyone said that I was so cool. Thank you.” (Breanna, 4th Grade Student, Las Vegas, NV)
