What is Fusion
If you were to ask 10 dancers what the definition of fusion is, you’re likely to get between 11-15 answers.
Most definitions vaguely involve blending multiple dances or dance influences with different types of music.
things like “you know… fusion” are thrown around haphazardly as if that means anything to someone not in the know.
Trip-Hop, Dub-Step, Norah Jones and David Keogh are certain to be mentioned for the music at some point.
So in the spirit of Fusion we have two definitions, both of which work for us.
- A hybrid of two or more partnered dances, being danced to music not necessarily native to any of the dances being mixed.
- Fusion is the infusing of Dance A into Dance B to add the flavor of Dance A without losing the most important characteristics of Dance B.
Since those are confusing, let’s just say it’s having access to all of your dance moves and technique and making it fit whatever the feeling of the music is, regardless if that’s how they were originally intended to be used.
