Dance Application

Bring the twists and turns of the Chinese lion dance, the lilting leaps of Irish step dance, the energetic drive of African movement, or the patterns of the dances from your heritage. Create never-before-seen combinations of dance from different geographic regions in the FusionFest Contest.

HERITAGE:

Details and Application of Intent to Participate

  • The rhythms, movements and costumes of our heritage ignite the pride and passions from our roots.
  • FusionFest is designed to allow the audience to “sample their way around the world”.  Performances are short samples usually of 10 to 12 minutes. Performers have a total of 15  minutes to enter the stage and set up, perform, and clear the stage. We found this format encourages the audience to stick around longer to see what is next.
  • Each performer receives a chance to win 2 tickets to fly anywhere in the world.
  • Each performance group receives a stipend of between $50 and $100 to cover incidentals
  • Water and a small dressing area is provided, but shared with other groups.
