 We chose FDP because I knew my daughter would be taught the proper techniques of ballet, jazz, and hip hop. I felt that was more important than just being on a stage in a glittery costume doing the same dance step over and over. She has learned so much in the past year she has been with the company and continues to be inspired by the work of Melissa. – The Rigsby Family

As parents, my husband and I were first impressed with the studio personally. FDP is loving, professional, and technically astonishing. When our dancers do the moves correctly and have been working on them you congratulate our children. Going to each lesson is always a joy because the combinations are different and exciting. Thank you Fusion Dance Project! – The Von Wedel Family

“My daughter absolutely loves everything about this studio! Her teachers are amazing, the owner is organized and runs it like a business, and it’s a fun environment for all. So happy I made the choice to drive a little further for a great studio.”  – The Gee Family

“I love the little things they do for each of these amazing little dancers…I love the humble sprit and love of dance. They have inspired my kiddo above and beyond. I love that they encourage them to dream, and dream BIG…I highly recommend and appreciate this studio that we humbly call home away from home.”  – The Large Family

“Absolutely amazing place, the owner and staff are so friendly. The girls are great & my daughter has never been happier. The parents and kids are such a wonderful group …. we wouldn’t go anywhere else.” – The Allen Family

“My daughter is in Ms. Emmy’s ballet, jazz, and tap class. She absolutely adores her! I especially like how she uses language the kids know to teach the basics of technique. Emerson looks forward to coming to class every week, as I do as well. I enjoy our time with Fusion, especially since the parents are able to watch the class on the monitors and reiterate things at home. Thankful for all FDP does!” – The Broyles Family

The instructors and curriculum place a very high value on versatility and artistry, which is refreshing and admirable. They provide a true education…not just lessons. Their works of art have brought me to actual tears. They also foster an amazing sense of family between their dancers, and it is widely evident even as an outside observer – everyone involved is always cheering for and supporting one another. The leadership, innovation, and excellence are unparalleled.. The entire staff, and alumni are all well-regarded by fellow teachers, dance students, parents and choreographers are well regarded in the industry and I can’t imagine a better place to send young dancers.  – The Crook Family 

THIS JUST IN!
