What to expect?

What is Blues dancing and Fusion dancing? What about the music you can expect?

If you ask someone what they consider as ‘fusion’ you get many different answers. This is the way we set it up for this event:

  • Fusion dance is combining different dance styles into a dance, creating a connection with your partner and the music.
  • This event takes Blues dance as a basic partner dance in which you can incorporate different other styles. We do think it’s valuable to have a shared basis to start from, and agree on what is appropriate during a dance. (Please read our Code of Conduct!)
  • There are many different music styles possible for fusion dance, the music is mostly what the DJ thinks is fit to dance to.
  • To give you an idea of the different music styles you will get through the event, check out the videos below! 🙂
