About the Collective

Merge Dance Collective is our competitive dance team made up of an elite ensemble of dancers from PPAC and our sister studio, Barre None Dance Company. MDC travels to regional and national dance competitions up and down the East Coast. Dancers are selected by audition process and follow a rigorous training program.

MDC also has opportunities to perform at local fairs, festivals, and participate in community service efforts. Events begin in the Winter and run through Summer annually.

Due to the pandemic, many competitions are now on livestream with audience capacity restrictions in place. Revisit this page to watch our dancers perform at our various competitive events, check results, and for audition information!
