After performing in the early morning heat, the dancers and their families got to enjoy the rest of the day at the parks. It was hot, so the roller coasters and water rides were deemed to be the favorites of the week and ice cream was the favorite food.

Next September, TNT dancers will head to another famous theme park, when they take off to Orlando, Fla. and Disney World
