  Up with People produced and performed in the Opening Ceremony of the Rose Parade in Pasadena, CA on January 1, 2011

Let Up with People Help You Celebrate a Special Event

Long before Glee, American Idol and High School Musical, Up with People created the genre of high- energy entertainment performed by an ensemble of talented young people from around the world.  The show is an international collaboration of music, dance and genuine energy with a message of hope and goodwill across nations. For over 45 years, the casts of Up with People have toured the globe performing for millions, including an unprecedented four Super Bowl halftime shows and two Tournament of Roses Parades. More than entertainment, Up with People inspires and motivates ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Now, you can bring that same message – and same spirit – to your event.  Discover how positively different your next event can be with the Up with People cast.

See below for a list of UWP Special Events since 2000.

Think your event is too small?

UWP has performed in and produced Super Bowl halftime shows, the Rose Parade and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. We’ve performed for heads of state and sold-out arenas worldwide. However, we’ve also performed at sales meetings, corporate training events, new product launches, festivals and fairs, charity and fundraising events, and much more! With options ranging from a single soloist to a cast of 20, 50 or hundreds, we have experience executing all sizes of events – and your event is just the right size for Up with People.

What do you want to achieve?

No one leaves one of our events unmoved! We’ll draw from 45 years of original music and dance to custom-tailor a program that will both entertain and move you forward. Maybe you want to promote teamwork… inspire achievement… celebrate diversity… or promote cooperation? Or is there something special? Share your goals – and your dreams with us – and we’ll help you accomplish them.

Worry-free turnkey productions

Up with People is a fully contained, professional troupe. We work with you to customize the show rundown and tailor our performance to your event. You’re free to concentrate on all the other details knowing that the Up with People production will be flawless.
