Dancers from Tyrone and the surrounding area returned to Dance Fusion for the 2014-2015 season on Monday, September 8,2014.

“I’m looking forward to watching my dancers grow and achieve their goals this year,” said Lindsay Pullara, owner and artistic director of Dance Fusion, “I’m excited to be teaching the twinkle babies again this year. One of my biggest goals is growing and maintaining my recreational dance program,”

Being a member of Dance Fusion was one of the best experiences I had during my high school career because I was able to do something I love. I made bonds with people that I will be able to carry with me forever”

Dance Fusion is home to 160 dancers.  The studio offers classes in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, acro, modern, technique and pointe.

For more dedicated dancers, an audition-only competitive team is offered. The team travels to three competitions during the season in various cities. The team was awarded many titles ranging from the Backstage Award to 1st Place Overall awards during the 2013-2014 season.

The studio has eight instructors, all with different backgrounds in dance.  The teachers are very excited for the new season to begin.

“I’m looking forward to seeing my talented dancers hit the stage,” said Dance Fusion instructor Tessa Rossi,  “We all work so hard to prepare for competition season. Endless hours in the studio, stress, injuries and hard work it takes to perfect our dances all become totally worth it when the dancers finally get to perform. It’s a proud moment for me as their teacher and makes my job so much fun.”

The dancers were excited to be back in the studio at practice. “I am excited to dance with all of my friends. I’m glad to learn more every week to become a better dancer,” said Natalie Berena-Barr, student at Dance Fusion.

In 2011 Dance Fusion  relocated to their currently location on Hoovers Lane. The renovated studio features two 40’x40’ studios with state-of-the-art flooring and a spacious lobby.

Dance Fusion has taught many dancers skills and techniques, but even more importantly these young people are learning important life lessons and work ethic.

“Being a member of Dance Fusion was one of the best experiences I had during my high school career because I was able to do something I love. I made bonds with people that I will be able to carry with me forever,” said recent Tyrone High School grad and Dance Fusion alum Abby Dutrow.
