The Mid Maryland Performing Arts Center is home to several student performing groups, also known as the companies. There is a theater ensemble called Acting Up, a dance ensemble known at FX, a pop-up performance club known as the MMPAC MOB SQUAD and Dance Unbound.

Two of the companies (Acting Up and FX) require an audition which take place in May of preceding seasons. These companies are season long commitments. The MOB SQUAD has registrations twice a year and is open to any MMPAC student dancing at a 10 level and above. Dance Unbound performers are selected and invited into opportunities. There is something for everyone.
