FX is MMPAC's resident student repertory company. Students planning to audition for FX must be 11 years old and have completed or will need to have completed or be entering level 40 or above in ballet and jazz during the approaching season. Being a member of FX brings special opportunities as well as responsibilities. The company provides dancers with extra performance opportunities in the community, the opportunity to attend exciting national and regional conventions, and participation in an occasional competition. Dancers learn and perform repertory from different choreographers in a variety of genres and often work with guest instructors.
Company members are required to take classes in ballet, modern, jazz, and in other styles such as musical theater, tap, and lyrical. They also have weekly rehearsals to focus on company dances on Saturdays. As ambassadors of the studio, FX company members are expected to uphold the standards of MMPAC and to model discipline, respect, and a positive attitude.
Parents of company members are active in all FX activities as volunteers. Participation and support are crucial for the success of this team.
FX is a great opportunity for dancers to gain pre-professional experiences and to build lifelong bonds with fellow dancers.
