On Thursday evening, December 3, the talented dancers of Xcape cheerfully rung in the holiday season at Allentown's annual Tree Lighting Ceremony downtown.
The studio had prepared four numbers for the large crowd which gathered 'round the tree in the 800 block of Hamilton Street: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" (pictured at right), "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," and "All I Want for Christmas Is You."
"The Xcape dancers gave the crowd quite a performance. It was the highlight of the evening! A lot of work and dedication went into the show, and you can tell they enjoyed every minute," said Nancy Signorovitch, Associate Director of Marketing for Youth Education in the Arts.
Celebrating one of the most magical times of year, this community event also featured horse-drawn carriage rides, live musicians, face painting, and of course, appearances by Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
Thanks to everyone who came out to support Xcape and celebrate this joyful season. Stay tuned for details on Xcape's next public performance!
