What is Fusion dance?
There are many descriptions out there, but OlyDance's is both "the combination of elements from different dance styles brought together to create a unique dance experience OR something completely new and unique on its own; usually based in partnership, connection, and interpretation". Some argue it's not a dance at all, but a container for all those things to happen.

Why? To have fun, dance, and connect with people in our community!
Who? Anyone! No partner required. Fusion dancing is done all over the world by people from many different cultures. Thursday Fusion at the Eagles is an all ages event. However the vibe can seem more adult.
What if I'm not a dancer or know zero styles of dance?
Perfect! Olympia is a great incubator for new dancers. There are always several new dancers there every week. Plus, our community is forgiving, kind, and supportive! Dance however your body moves you whether it is solo or partnered, and if you are having fun and not hurting anyone you are doing it right!
However if you want to expand your dance through classes. Great! We highly recommend it, expanding your dance is an exciting/never ending journey. We offer several classes at affordable prices!
For eleven years, we danced every Thursday night. (2008 - 2019) It has been a journey of creativity, community, inspiration, and fun. The reason for this almost year long break was due to a difficulty in finding a venue worthy of our community, but not anymore! Thank you to everyone that has been a part of the magic over the years.
The Thursday Fusion a weekly dance, formerly known as OlyBlues and the Slow Dance was founded in 2008 by Christine Corey and David Accurso. Rémy Baheux was instrumental in the fusion music and dancing influences. Many other people have contributed to the success of this fun creative weekly dance. Thank you all very much :)
