All over Seattle! | More info & Tickets: seattlefusionfestival.com
Seattle Fusion Festival promises to bring you an incredible event. Fantastic music, dancing, venues and people all mixed together for what will be an amazing not to be missed event!
Seattle Fusion Festival is the definition of fusion: the combination of the right elements of dance and music, at the right time, to create something awesome.
We’re taking inspiration from dance events like the Fusion Exchange, Emerald City Blues, and the various Recess events. But in the true spirit of fusion we’re adding in a little bit of theater workshops, music festivals, and sleepaway camp! Expect amazing dancers, DJs, and venues, perfect for offering workshops on technique and concepts of connection in both partner style and solo movement. There will be stimulation for the brain, too, with discussions and lectures on music composition, DJing, and protecting ourselves from injuries to engage us intellectually.
Unlike other fusion events, this one is uniquely Seattle. A number of really amazing people call Seattle home and we want to show you just what makes this city so special. For the locals, it’s a chance to open our homes and strut our stuff. For the visitors, it’s a chance to be treated like a guest and enjoy all we have to offer. We thought it was high time to introduce the country to some of the fantastic things we’ve got going on here in Seattle, while gaining inspiration from awesomeness that exists all over the US. This is a community driven event and at its core it’s an excuse for us, as a community of dancers, to get together and connect, share ideas, challenge each other, grow, and have fun!
