Alma’s Way, the educational children’s show, will air a week of new episodes highlighting Bronx culture, voting, and sustainability.

There will be five new episodes of the show, which was created by Sonia Manzano of Sesame Street, with two stories in each episode. Alma’s Way centers around 6-year-old Alma, a curious and kind Puerto Rican girl living in the Bronx. One of the notable new episodes is “Howard Brings the Beat.” The episode will showcase the work of Khalid Freeman, a body percussionist who has contributed to major events like Super Bowl halftime shows and Cirque du Soleil performances, and will see Alma join a neighborhood drum circle.

There will also be an episode called “Alma the B Girl,” in which Alma will learn the art of breakdancing from Ana “Rokafella” Garcia, a celebrated breakdancer from Spanish Harlem. To accompany this episode, Alma’s Way will also release a live-action short, highlighting the skills of young talents in the breakdancing world. 

The new Alma’s Way episodes will begin airing Monday, March 4th. The PBS KIDS series from Fred Rogers Productions is available to stream on the PBS KIDS website.
