Fusion Dances the Night Away

By: Christina Morris, Senior Communications Intern

On January 15, the Notre Dame Dance Performance, Intermediate Dance and Dance Classes proudly presented Fusion ‘19 in the Yvonne Theater at Rider University.
Fusion is an annual Dance Show performed by all three of ND’s Dance Classes. A variety of dance styles such as jazz, tap, and contemporary are performed at Fusion.

Six solos were showcased during the evening, including from Senior Dance Performance Captains, Giana Adragna and Paige Aita. Phoebe Cramer, Olivia Martin, Hope Aita, and Maddy Kitlas also had solos. In addition to these six performances, each dance class had group numbers.

The show was opened by sophomore Phoebe Cramer and her solo “Doctor’s Orders” and was closed with a performance from the Dance Performance class called “Too Darn Hot.” This year’s Fusion was a fun and upbeat show that made the audience want to dance.

The show was directed and choreographed by Dance Teacher Mrs. Gibilisco. Lauren Haugen also teaches and assisted in choreographing Dance Class. Senior Giana Adragna choreographed the tap routine in the Dance Performance number “Cups.”

The evening ran smoothly with assistance from stage managers Anna Carroll and Ashley Pillsbury. The Fusion performers would like to thank the Gibiliscos, Ms. Ivins, Mrs. Barlow, Mrs. MacIsaac and Mrs. Lenihan for their continued love and support.

Congratulations to the following dancers on another successful Fusion!
