The Fusion Dance Company was established in August 2000 to provide a professional, friendly and family oriented atmosphere for aspiring dancers to learn, develop and master their skills. The Company started with only 10 dancers and since then, has grown to over 100 students whose ages range from 4 and up.
Our dance studio offers a variety of classes in Jazz, Hip Hop, Jazz Funk, Lyrical, Contemporary, Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Acro Dance and Tumbling. Our mission is to provide the ultimate dance experience for all our students through a healthy and friendly learning environment. Staffed with some of the most experienced and talented instructors and choreographers, our dance program provides students a wide caliber of dance techniques and styles. And while our students master their skills in dance, they are also taught the positive values of team building, good character, and hard work.
Fusion has produced thirteen annual concerts since 2005 and will be celebrating its 18th Anniversary in June 2018. We are devoted to giving back to the community by donating concert proceeds to organizations that work with children. Recipients of these proceeds include the Guam Chapter of the Make A Wish Foundation, Erica's House, and the Guam Special Olympics. We have also volunteered services to such charities as the Youth for Youth, Rigalu Foundation, Salvation Army, American Red Cross and the Guam Medical Association. Donating to and volunteering for programs that help those in need and are less fortunate is Fusion's way of saying thank you to the community for its support.
Fusion has also been an ambassador for Guam abroad by attending dance competitions and conventions across the United States and Canada. The group has competed nationally and internationally during the last eight years in Nevada, California, New York, Florida and most recently, Canada. Each year, Fusion has garnered multiple awards including several first place overalls and special awards for the Most Entertaining Group, Performance Excellence and Studio Spirit. In 2008, the group won the XCalibur National Championship Title from Dance Xplosion Competition in Orlando, Florida. The award was won by scoring the highest in the competition for a Hip Hop routine. In July 2013, Fusion won first place overall for Junior Hip Hop and Teen Ballet and 1st Runner-up Overall Best in Hollywood in the iHollywood National Dance Competition.
In 2015, the group garnered several high awards and placements in the Thunderstruck International Competition in Las Vegas, Nevada held at the Green Valley Resort on July 6-10. Our Teen Contemporary Trio and Senior Hip Hop Group both won 1st Place in the Rockstar Division. The Teen Hip Hop Group won 3rd Place in the same division. Three of our competition pieces scored high enough to compete in the Dance Down Finals where we took two 3nd Place awards and one 2nd Place awards. Several other dances placed in the Top Ten and received the Judges' Special Awards.
