Dance4 France – Irish dancers worldwide raise money following Paris terror attacks
Irish dancers from around the world have come together to create videos to raise funds for Croix-Rouge Française, (the French Red Cross) following the Paris terror attacks.
Experimental dance group Fusion Fighters are the driving force behind the fund-raising campaign, known as Dance4France.
Fusion Fighters are known for pushing the boundaries of Irish dance by combining it with other art forms including the use of different musical genres and experimenting with technology.
Videos have been flooding in and Fusion Fighters have created a montage of several of the best dances they have received so far.
Chris Naish of Fusion Fighters said: “We really hope it can make a difference and the video can spread around the world to help raise funds and give aid to those who need it!”
Fusion Fighters wrote on their Facebook page: “We have all toured extensively in France and so it felt personal for us to help them out. In saying that, step by step we would love to help support the victims of these tragedies around the world through dance and help make the world a better place.
“A good place for us to start anyway and the campaign has got off to a flying start!”
It is inspiring to see so many people come together to show support for the victims and their families of the Paris attacks and, as Fusion Fighters said, victims of tragedies all over the world.
