They are sponsored by Portcon Maine and Weekend Anime. They normally perform at conventions, but this will be the first time they are hosting a standalone event like this, and they hope for it to become bigger!

What is an 'idol group'?

Basically, an idol group is a group that dances to choreographed songs. The music is in Japanese or Korean, but it’s all pop music (best known as K-Pop).

Teddy Bear Idols have been doing this for a couple of years. Their names are Allison, Nezu, Kat, Maru, Kippy, and Lyla. The group was founded by Allison in 2022, but they added new members in June of 2023. Some are also interested in cosplay. They have costumes that combine handmade things and some things they've bought.

There are several idol groups, but not in Maine. Most are based in Massachusetts. Teddy Bear Idols is the biggest Maine-based group. They are a lot of fun, and the crowds love them!

Tickets are only $5 and all the money goes to the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland!

Get your tickets here!

This is a great fun show helping out our furry friends! I bet you'll want to get up and dance too!
