WGI Dayton Regional Recap

This past weekend both Rhythm X ensembles competed at their first WGI Regional of X17 in Dayton, Ohio. It was a successful and productive weekend for each ensemble in both rehearsals and performances. Winds took first place in their class in both prelims and finals, and Percussion took second in both prelims and finals

Winds delighted the crowd with their show "Jumping Through Loops," featuring gorgeous uniforms from Fred J. Miller Inc. and the vibrant tarp from Field and Floor FX. Percussion added 11 back drop props produced by Pageantry Innovations, each standing 12' tall. Keep an eye out for more exciting additions as the show progresses!

The X Store was open both Saturday and Sunday for Rhythm X fans to grab all the best gear. Stop by at our next show to try on a jacket, test out the Tim Fairbanks and Tim Jackson Signature Innovative Percussion sticks, and pick up a lanyard for the recently reduced price of only $5!

We always love hearing from and seeing our fans on regional weekends! With gorgeous weather this weekend, tons of our fans were able to stop by to watch us warm up in the lot and say hi. Stay tuned on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat [rhythmxinc] for updates on the location of our warm up and performance times each weekend! Tag your posts with #X17 to join the conversation.

Support X17 And Feed The Cast!

Each year Rhythm X, Inc. feeds all 100 cast members of our US WGI Ensembles every show weekend. Providing these meals ensures the performers are prepared mentally and physically for their performance and makes certain they have the time they need on show day to get ready, stay relaxed, and perform at the highest level. Since 2013 we've been providing every single meal for our performers on show day and 2017 will be no different.

Providing these meals is no easy task. With around 100 mouths to feed, both the cost and logistics can be a challenge. Fortunately, we've had incredible support from our parents and alumni to make this possible.

There are two ways you can help us feed X17. If you want to be in on the action, you can bring any portion of a meal to rehearsal and help serve along with other parents and alumni. Can't make it to a rehearsal or provide food? You can also donate and the Rhythm X, Inc. team or a parent helping serve a meal will ensure that your gift goes toward purchasing food for the cast.

To provide a meal visit our sign-up page here. Alternatively, you can make a donation towards meals at rhythmx.org/donate. Just make a note in the donation that you'd like the gift to go towards feeding the cast!

Feeding X17 is something we care deeply about and we're grateful for your support. If you have any questions about providing a meal please email maddie@rhythmx.org or with questions about donating to Rhythm X, Inc. contact us at give@rhythmx.org. Rhythm X, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. You will receive a reciept via email.


Rhythm X Seeks Dancers For X17 Percussion Program

Rhythm X has a history of using additional visual performers and dancers in it's programs - most notably with more than 30 performers on the stage in the X11 production St& By Me. This year Rhythm X, Inc. will continue that tradition with the use of a dance ensemble alongside the battery percussion section.

Rhythm X, Inc. is seeking highly qualified and passionate performers with dance experience in any genre. Colorguard equipment experience is not necessary. Experience in the drum corps or indoor marching activities is great, but not required - it simply means you speak the WGI language!

Dancers interested in auditioning should register for the X17 Audition Clinics, presented by The X Academy here. Choose the "Battery / Dance" option and select "Dancer" under the instrument section. If you cannot make the X17 Audition Clinics please email us at join@rhythmx.org to consider other options.

Not a dancer? You can register for Battery, Front Ensemble, Brass, and Woodwinds at the X17 Audition Clinics. The event is open to ALL SKILL LEVELS - even if you're not auditioning for an ensemble.

Looking for X17 Interns

We're looking for a group of out-of-the-box thinkers, problem solvers, and creative types to be the next class of Rhythm X, Inc. interns. We're a small, but rapidly growing non-profit with a start-up mentality. Our interns will work closely with our administrative team and instructional staff. We want young people who are excited about the marching arts and willing to dive head first into a fast-paced and challenging environment.

While you might get stuck grabbing coffee, you can expect to be on the front lines solving problems and developing a company and a brand committed to providing the best in performing arts education.

We're looking for a team of both administrative and media interns. To learn more and apply visit rhythmx.org/careers.
