The Next Decade of Dance Education

At FMC we're marking a proud milestone! Since our founding in 2013, we have dedicated ourselves to transforming the lives of youth. As we continue teaching dance arts, providing cultural education, cultivating community partnerships, and collaborating with countless principals, arts liaisons, teachers, and parents, we pause to thank the many people, who've made this day possible. Your investment in FMC helped us provide the benefits of dance to over 50,000 students.
Thank you!
