I have seen Fuzion artists perform in various occasions and have also participated in some of their projects as teacher and dancer. My experience with them has always been very professional, organized and conscientious. This group is an absolute pleasure to work with and to watch perform. The artistic directors Leymis Bolanos and Rachael Inman have huge hearts and passion for dance, art, and their community. They present work that is inclusive of and accessible to the community. The dancers are coached and directed very professionally while allowed to bring in their own artistic voices. You can always count on Fuzion to bring you a special show, different, fiery, full of heart and passion. Isa Garcia-Rose Dancer and Teacher

Fuzion could perform in so many places if they had the money because their material is very accessible to real people of the human condition. They could collaborate with different artists and make shows with more sophisticated technicalities.

Whole Foods Market Sarasota has hired Fuzion Dance Artists for numerous events over the years. They are so professional, tallented and kind and most importantly a real draw for any event. It's been a pleasure having them here and I look forward to a long partnership. Nikki Heil, Marketing Director

The Fuzion Dance Artists were hired for a photo shoot for a national ad campaign. As we could not find a stage that was available, we needed to do the shoot in a racquetball court. The dancers were absolutely amazing, quickly re-orienting to the space and were able to create some beautiful lifts and holds for our photographer. They even came up with a great idea of using light sticks which we ended up using for one of the final shots. I highly recommend Fuzion Dance for their talent, professionalism and grace. They are wonderful crowned jewels in our community!

The first time I attended a dance program by Fuzion Dance, I didn't expect too much having seen some major companies in large cosmopolitan areas. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. The choreography was top-class and the dancing beautiful. Since then, I have seen them a few more times, once during the opening of an outdoor scupture show where they danced with each piece in a style unique to each sculpture. Another time, they were teaching a crowd of people (young and old) how to do the "Thriller" Dance for a Halloween happening. The director and the dancers are very accessible and friendly and a definate asset to the Sarasota area.

As an audience participant for many Fuzion activities and performances I have found the company's Artistic contributions stimulating and diverse. Fuzion's ability to bring Dance and the Arts to a variety of public settings proves their commitment to the field and investment in their community. In that I believe Fuzion provides an invaluable educational, cultural and artistic service to Sarasota and Manatee counties.

the varying aspects of diversity it provides. The company appears to strive to create multi-cultural and multi-generational projects, along with gender based subjects to enlighten and uplift attendees and, or, participants.

Fuzion could set up fully staffed educational programs for youth in elementary levels, as well as establish college preparatory dance education courses. Also, establish Artist in Residence opportunities for emerging choreographers.

Fuzion Dance Artists performs outstanding professional shows. But in addition, an unusual and greatly appreciated (or maybe underappreciated) aspect of the company is the amount of effort and work its members put into outreach programs: making dance as an art form more accessible to the general public, using art for social change, diversifiying and refusing typical dance stereotypes, the list goes on... Working with children and adults of all ages, abilities, and socioeconomic status, Fuzion has the willingness and drive to bring dance to anyone. I've heard participants describe their classes in ways from "a great break from the daily grind" to "therapeutic". At New College of Florida, dancers (typically with no formal training) did projects such as site-specific dancing throughout the community and choreographing "self-portraits," which not only developed a better understanding of body movement, but allowed for soul-searching and exploration of self. It's exciting to consider how much they can grow with our community's support.

As a professor at Florida State University, I was invited to set a work of mine on the Fuzion Dance Company. I was impressed not only by the talent and energy of the dancers, but also by the degree of engagement the company has maintained with the community. The level of creativity and commitment from these artists is quite extraordinary. I admire their interest in collaboration, their ability to continually find new ways to develop outreach programs and their wonderful good will and enthusiasm.
