About Us

The company consists of approximately 40 members and growing.  MPPAC resides at Mt. Pleasant School of Performing Arts, LLC, located at 1177 Gregorie Ferrry Road, Mt. Pleasant, SC 29466


We strive to bring to the low country the art of dance with performances throughout the year.  Larisa Dahabi uses her extensive professional background in dance and theatre to bring these arts to our dancers and the community. As the company’s artistic director and choreographer, she has directed and choreographed the following performances for our dance company over the past several years -   The Nutcracker, Etudes, Coppelia, A Mixed Bill, featuring music from Faust, Josh Groban and Michael Buble’, West Side Story,  LaBoutique Fantasque, The Tale of Snow White, The Tale of Beauty and the Beast,  En L'Air, The Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.   Our annual performance of The Nutcracker is always a huge and exciting success.  Upcoming events are already in the making.  Visit our "upcoming events" page for details
