Summer Fusion – August edition
18 August, 15:00 - 18:00
Do you love partner-dancing, improvising to the music, thinking outside the box? Then Fusion is your dance!
Fusion dancing is a lead&follow based partner dance, drawing from dance styles like Blues, Tango, West Coast Swing, Kizomba, Zouk, and so many more.
For the summer months we have an outdoor concept: we’ll provide a little dance floor in our garden. Entrance is free, including music, dancing, coffee, and tea. If you’d like something else, please bring it (and share it).
Ofcourse we do rely on good weather, so do your sundance well in advance otherwise we might have to cancel the event.
Practica (15:00-15:30), by everyone and for everyone, ask questions, share skills, let’s learn together.
Social dance (15:30-18:00), by everyone and for everyone, lead, follow, dj, let’s have fun!

What is Fusion Dance?
Fusion dance is a type of contemporary American partner dance that combines different dance styles to create a new aesthetic. It is typically an improvised, lead-follow approach to dancing that does not conform to any particular defined dance styles. Fusion dancing may involve creating a new dance style, combining existing styles, or both.
Fusion dance may employ any dance technique, or arbitrary combination of techniques, associated with any type of dance. It usually incorporates dance partnering techniques such as connection, extension-compression, and frame, and may also utilize other techniques such as ballet technique, contact improvisation, and popping.
Fusion dancing emphasizes musicality. The music style may influence a fusion dancer’s choice of dance style. For example, a dancer might employ popping in response to hip hop music. [source: wikipedia]
