The 2018 EPPT consists of 70 dancers on the team, the most they have ever had!

Team charity and fundraiser activities:
Our big fundraiser is our Fall Dance Showcase. We have many local teams attend and perform their Fall routines – it kind of serves as our end of the season recital. This year is the 4th Annual Showcase, on Saturday, 9/22.

Speaking of the Fall Dance Showcase, you should make sure to check out all the great Fall dance teams participating.  Enjoy one last (hopefully) beautiful Saturday before the weather turns.  See all the details on the event on the brand new Minnesota Dance News calendar.
