Competition & PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES AT FUSION
We are incredibly passionate about dance and that’s why we offer more performance opportunities for those students who just can’t get enough. Our teams give our students a chance to show their dedication to dance and build a higher level of leadership, self-confidence, and self-reliance. Through participation in competitions, performances, and conventions, we hope to instill in our students an appreciation for other dancers and teachers both inside our own studio and with other studios. Being part of a team requires a more serious time commitment, additional expenses, and dedication beyond the normal dance year. Each of our teams has a different level of commitment, cost, and opportunities. We are sure there is one perfect for your dancer!
