Fusion Dance Company 2012-2013
Our mission is to offer professional dance training in all genres of dance to young, aspiring dancers.
We strive to offer frequent and abundant opportunities that will enhance their dance knowledge and training. We will work as mentors to dancers and nurture them in a positive learning environment. We will provide ample opportunities for all dancers to perform and compete with dance as an art form.
Fusion Dance Company Goals and Purpose
The main objective to Fusion Dance Company is to give dancers who want to take dance to the next level the training, guidance and opportunities to do so. The Company program is designed to encourage individual progress through their dance education, providing sound technical training and numerous performing opportunities. The Company also serves as a guide for older dancers on their path toward a professional dance-related career or college. We will achieve these goals by requiring that each dancer trains in weekly technique classes and rehearsals, participates in local performances, attends professional dance conventions and maintains a passion and love for the art of dance!

Fusion Faculty Mission and Purpose:
We understand that each child possesses their own passion, and believe whole-heartedly that all should be offered the opportunity to express it. Each child / young adult also has different learning abilities and progress on different timelines. Fusion Faculty is absolutely committed to understanding these differences and will work with every child individually to help them progress, regardless of their learning style. Additionally, some students are born with certain favorable or ideal physical or anatomical body characteristics, such as turn-out, hyper-mobility in joints, flexibility, musicality, etc. Although these characteristics are certainly a bonus, they do not make an automatic professional dancer. Dancers turn professional when they can emotionally affect an audience through movement. This is the goal for all our students, regardless of their long-term dancing goals. We believe that dance is a journey, and are dedicated to guide each dancer through this journey with encouragement. We will provide excellent instruction and strive to give all dancers positive inspiration as they continue
on their journey through dance. We are here to pass on our enthusiasm!

Fusion Dance Company exists to provide accelerated training to dancers who desire it. It also presents numerous opportunities so that dancers may take this training as far as they’d like to. Every dancer in Fusion Dance Company will have options...and most importantly, opportunity. Everyone has the ability to excel, and everyone has the opportunity to make it happen! Fusion Dance Company is one cohesive family of dancers comprised of different styles and ages. The Company as a whole offers training and choreography in jazz, hip hop, tap, ballet, lyrical, contemporary, jazz funk, improvisation and more. As many dancers choose to study all genres of the program, dancers may also choose to specialize in one or two. Although we believe training in all styles is valuable, we also appreciate those who desire a smaller time and/or financial commitment. It is our goal to offer this amazing training opportunity to all dancers at multiple levels of involvement.
