Class Descriptions

Our goal at Fusion Dance Company is to pass to our students, the love of dance and exercise in a safe, friendly and fun environment, to give each of our students the confidence to believe in themselves, and to provide classes to all ages. We believe that proper dance technique is extremely important; however, to be a successful dancer you also have to unite passion, dedication, and desire.

All classes will focus on flexibility, coordination, rhythm, balance, self-expression, confidence, terminology, core & muscle strengthening, musicality, and memory.
