Bristol's newest night out! Leave strictly to your sofa, we'll show you how to really move
HEADFIRST STAFF PICK
“Don’t know your ballroom from your tango? Or are you just bored of having to choose? Fusion joins the dots, teaching you to dance with an emphasis on improvisation and spontaneity rather than pre-established rules. Learn direct from acclaimed Canadian instructor, Pomona Lake.”
WHAT THE F IS FUSION?
Fusion is new-fangled partner dancing. We're not here to stick to a rigid set of steps and endless rules, but to actually dance with another person to good music on a night out. Fusion is all about improvisation, connecting with your partner and seeing what happens. We don't care if you've never danced before, as long as you're having a good time.
Fusion gets it's name from fusing different styles of dance - maybe you've danced blues, tango, lindy, west coast swing or hip hop or maybe you just like to get on the dance floor and shake it, you have something to bring!
SUPERSTAR TEACHERS AND DJ'S!
We'll kick off the evening with an intro to social dancing for anyone who'd like some tips on dancing with a partner, before local DJ's get us moving with tracks ranging from slow and squishy to high-energy bangers.
5pm advanced class and practica - please register separately!
7.30pm intro to fusion class with Pomona Lake
8.30pm our DJ's bring out the tunes
Pomona grew up dancing Lindy Hop on the west coast of Canada, sneaking out of her parents' place in high school to go to fusion parties. Her dancing is playful, groovy and raw, with an emphasis on improvisation and spontaneity, and her teaching style is clear, intuitive, and light-hearted.
DANCE HAS NO GENDER
In fusion we...
...don't assume what role you take in the dance; whether you lead, follow or switch is up to you and your partner
...welcome everyone, embracing queerness and all types of bodies
...feel free to ask anyone to dance, and are okay hearing and saying no sometimes
...check-in with our partner about what kind of dance they would like, including whether they feel happy with close embrace or being dipped
We've got an advanced class and practica in the works for the afternoon for those who want to push their dancing even more. Register your interest here: https://forms.gle/BMbNKhUHM5b48dx89
