Light Up the Holidays with Us!

‘Tis the season of gratitude and giving! With Thanksgiving festivities closing out and the holidays soon approaching, it’s the perfect time of year to slow down, appreciate the little things, and find some time for your loved ones. What better way to do that than with some amazing holiday performances in Augusta?!

We’ve got some upcoming performances and events on the calendar that are sure to get you in the holiday spirit! We can’t wait to tell you about them! Check out what’s happening below and be sure to add these events to your calendar! 

Augusta Holiday Tree Lighting Performance

On Saturday, November 25th, join us for one of Augusta’s most treasured holiday traditions! The City of Augusta will be kicking off the holiday season with fun activities all day long, closing out with the tree lighting and fireworks. Each year, our DUPC dancers and select classes perform at the tree lighting alongside the Central Maine Twirling Corps. The performance will happen at approximately 4pm in front of the Old Federal Building on Water Street. For a complete list of the entire day’s events, click here

Holiday Performance at the Inn at City Hall

Directly prior to the Tree Lighting, our dancers will also be performing at the assisted living facility across the street from Old Fort Western. While this performance is not open to the public, we are excited for our dancers to experience the magic of giving and sharing their love of dance with the residents at the Inn. Follow along on our Facebook page for pictures of the event! 

You’re Invited to a Nutcracker Tea Party on Saturday, December 9th.

Again, this is one of our favorite traditions for creating holiday magic in our community! Each year, we host a marvelous event that gives our youngest guests a chance to journey into the land of sweets. The event will consist of a Nutcracker-inspired ballet class, crafts, and a tea party.
