What are we talking about when we say “Fusion Dance?”
NEW TO FUSION?
Fusion Dance is a free-form, improvised partner dance. It can look and feel very different from dance to dance because it is created from whatever the partners bring to it. Fusion dance may employ any dance technique associated with any type of partner or solo dance. The focus is expression and connection. Fusion tends to be very exploratory, often playful in nature, and can express a broad range of emotion.
Fusion doesn’t have to be any one thing, which begs the question: “What can it be?” As a result, Fusion is an exploration of how dancers can connect to each other and to the music by mixing movement styles, emotional expression, modalities of communication with their partner(s). While some songs or partners will bring you to a place of comfort, others will push you to learn and challenge those things you’ve taken for granted. From these experiences, a Fusion dancer is ever-evolving and continually discovering new sources of joy, connection, and expression.
> Micro-fusion, solo dance, and “polydancery,” meaning multiple dance partners simultaneously (and yes, that is a ‘freshly minted’ but totally legit word!), are also encouraged expressions of fusion dancing.
