The FMBallet wants to give everyone the opportunity to be a part of a ballet production. Whether it is as a company member or a young 6 year old or a 58 year who misses dancing on the stage, we have many opportunities for you.

FMBallet Production Auditions
FMBallet has two major productions each season and we have open auditions for these shows. All dance levels invited to audition. Must be at least 6 years of age. Adults are welcomed, too.
We truly believe in a mentorship program where young dancers share the stage and train next to our company members. Many of our company members started out as a small mouse in Nutcracker. It is fun to see the development and growth in these young dancers from production to production.
