Dancers of all abilities are welcome to enrol, and it is a fantastic opportunity for the young hopefuls to learn from some of the leading Irish dancers in the world.
Fusion Fighters have long been one of the top names in Irish dancing. They have created numerous fantastic videos that have spread across the internet like wildfire, and they are regular performers at the various award ceremonies and events that celebrate Irish dancing.
We asked Chris Naish, the founder and creative force behind Fusion Fighters, to tell us a little more about the camp.
He said: “Well Fusion Dance Fest by Fusion Fighters (AKA Our Summer Camp) is now in its third year and takes place at Limerick Institute of Technology & Millennium Theatre.
“It was amazing that in just two years of having the camp we had an international cast of over 10 different nationalities in 2017, ‘Fusion Dance Fest’ is already fast becoming the perfect meeting hub for dance enthusiasts and creatives from around the world.
“This year’s camp is jam packed with workshops taught by show stars, renowned choreographers and of course the members of the ‘Fusion Fighters Crew’.
