Rhythm X, Inc. today announced that it has forged an official partnership with the European-based IMP Foundation (European X), giving both groups greater access to shared marketing and website staff, in addition to instructional staff and designers.
Mike Scott, CEO of Rhythm X, Inc. says he is excited about the implications of this partnership across two hemispheres.
“Making this partnership official has been a long time coming,” says Scott. “I’m thrilled to be joining forces and making the X vision strong on multiple continents.”
European X was founded in 2009 and has collaborated with Rhythm X for many years, sharing instructional staff and designers, as well as an overall approach. Rhythm X, Inc. educational team members regularly travel to the Netherlands to consult with European X, and this arrangement will give American staff members even more time with the ensemble.
“Since our founding, European X has shared a common vision with our American counterpoint,” says IMP Foundation staff coordinator and board secretary Michel ten Brummelhuis. “We are excited to officially join forces with Rhythm X, Inc. and work toward our common goals together.”
European X will be traveling to the United States for the 2016 WGI World Championships, effectively uniting Rhythm X, Inc.’s three partner ensembles at the same event spread out between two divisions and three classes of competition.
