From its humble beginnings as a provider of entertainment during FAAGC activities, the all-volunteer Columbia Fil-Am Dance Troupe has emerged as a much-sought-after performing group during school and community events in the Greater Columbia area and neighboring communities.
      Under the directorship of Grace Collins, then Tessie Kenerson, and now Precy Walker, and despite constant changes of personnel typical of a volunteer group, the dance troupe has continued to serve as ambassadors for inter-cultural education and understanding while performing traditional Philippine folk dances.
