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.
The FMBallet company is open to dancers age 14 - Adults. Dancers should be at an advance, pre-professional or professional level of dance.
The company focuses on the following dance styles; ballet, pointe, classic jazz and contemporary. You do not have to have trained in all styles to audition or be in the company.
Company class is mandatory. Class is held Wednesdays 7:30pm - 9:30pm and Saturdays 9:30am - 11:30am.
Additional rehearsals for productions will take place typically on Saturday afternoons or Sunday afternoons.
The Company will also have the opportunity to perform at events, TV appearances, and residencies in the Fargo-Moorhead area and region.
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.
There is no cost to participate or audition. We ask families and individuals to help behind the scenes, front of house, with costumes, ticket sales, and promotions. Financial requirements are tights and shoes (depending on the production), and typically items you already own.
