Fusion Fighters is a progressive performance company and online community first launched on St Patrick’s Day 2013 at the Mayor of London Festival in Trafalgar Square. We have branched away from what has become the typical Irish dance experience in order to still preserve our art form whilst developing in ways to suit a modern audience. The initiative has continued to grow and has now established itself worldwide working intensively in the creation, production and delivery of unique campaigns and community projects. With their motto of ‘Creativity and Inclusion’ their projects always strive to have a community focus and to include dancers of all levels and dance styles.
The Fusion Fighters community has rapidly grown to be one of the largest and most influential dance communities in the world, with over 70K followers and achieving over 50 Million video views. With their viral success they are committed to using this platform to endorse and create campaigns to benefit others to expose awareness of important issues which affects us all. Their most recent documentary campaign ‘Create Not Hate’ documentary campaign is embarking on a world tour of community projects this year. The Fusion Fighters crew will be joining together with dance schools in both major cities and remote areas to advocate positive change using dance as a way of bringing people together in their community and in creative ways to highlight others in need. (See Create Not Hate).
The Fusion Fighters crew is made up of 30+ professional dancers and 100+ students around the world, mostly based in the UK & Ireland where they provide entertainment for a variety of corporate performances and festivals. The dancers are extensively trained in Irish dance, but are also skilled in many other dance forms like tap, contemporary and body percussion. The presentation of the Fusion Fighters performances are renowned for the uniqueness in approach to choreography, inclusion of stunning imagery and the collaboration of both modern and traditional Irish music.
Fusion Fighters also deliver specialist ‘Irish Fusion’ workshops and host an annual event ‘Fusion Dance Fest’ that is specifically designed to enhance dancers versatility in a range of dance styles, increase confidence and performance technique.
