Philippine American Performing Arts of Greater Pittsburgh has been a performing arts group since 2012. For many years, we’ve provided the public with a wide range of shows and performances. We offer a number of engaging acts designed to entertain and enlighten audiences, and we wouldn’t be able to do it all without the help of our volunteers and dancers.
