“Comfort, Contrast & Texture” is Flouer’s mantra while DJing for a room full of Fusion dancers. She calls NYC her hometown, though she mostly be found traveling the world creating dance experiences for many kinds of people. While DJing, the dance floor is her tapestry as she spins rich, colorful portraits full of creativity. In her world, she seeks to lull you with the sweet sounds of familiar rhythms- then skyrocket you into starry realms, far past where you ever thought music could take you. Dance is your playground, music is your jungle gym. More about Flouer: http://FlouerDances.com

What is Fusion Dancing?
Fusion dance is done within a community of social dancers that have a variety of views on what it means to Fusion dance.
Some will say it is a dance form of its own while others will say that it is not a dance form but a way of dancing and thinking about dance (and teaching/organising dance). Some might say it is a type of contemporary social improvised partner dance that combines different dance styles to create a new aesthetic, while others believe it doesn’t need to be contemporary, and it doesn’t need to combine different dance styles, and doesn’t need to create a new aesthetic (but often does have elements of each of these).
Most agree it does not require conforming to any particular defined dance styles, but typically uses a lead-follow approach that emphasises musicality.
Fusion dancing may involve creating a new dance style, recreating an already established dance style, combining existing styles of movement, or any combination of the above (as well as many other possibilities we probably haven’t thought of yet).
