With its origins in the Fusion partner dance movement, and giving huge appreciation to Blues, Swing, Hip-Hop and other resistance dances that have massively shaped fusion, the practice is to meet one another where we are and engage in an explorative movement dialogue as free from judgement as we can make ourselves. As we hone this dynamic, kinetic toolbox, we emphasize connection, communication and creative expression between two humans within a community of others.
