There are no fees to be apart of the FMBallet company. We have always believe that one should not pay to perform.
Trainee dancers are required to take a minimum of two ballet classes and a pointe class at Gasper's School of Dance. (This is highly recommended for all company dancers). Males are encouraged to take two ballet classes and mens dance. Other styles of dance are also beneficial.
