APTD & The Community

APTD dancers are active in our community. Dancing at local fairs, community events and the senior center, we also perform at benefits and show our support for local community organizations such at R.I.S.E. and the Mercer County Sunshine Foundation.

At APTD our dancers learn more than dance steps, technique and teamwork. They also learn the importance of being active caring members of our community.
