When my daughter was only five, she (and her cousin) showed interest in taking ballet classes. After days of research and a lot of calling around for questions that only moms think about, Coco and I decided to pay a visit to Dance Fusion in Harrisburg, NC. They had an open house right before classes started in August, which was pretty convenient for us to stop by after work.
When we first met Ms. Lauren Hinson, I didn't realize she was the owner of this fantastic studio. She charmingly gave us a tour of the facility. A cozy two studio dance school, equipped to teach little ones as young as 2 years old, as well as rising dancers in the art of ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, and acrobatics. We were in love with the place, the location, affordability, and the very convenient schedule of classes.
Then, I noticed something. Trophies displayed in the lobby area, showcasing the talent that has emerged and continues to emerge from their instructions. It was then when I realized that, besides recreational students, they also have a competitive team of amazing kids which compete each year in several regional competitions.
Dance Fusion was founded in 2009 by Ms. Lauren, a Fayetteville, NC native. She told us about how she always had a passion for dance and opening a studio had always been her dream. A graduate from UNCC with a degree in dance, Ms. Lauren perfectly combined a small studio with a big heart and love for the art of dance.
Being a locally owned business, Dance Fusion of Harrisburg is very family oriented, and their dedication to their community as well as their passion for the arts shows in every event in which they participate. Dance Fusion dancers participate in Christmas Shows at Harrisburg Town Center, Fourth of July parades, Harrisburg art walk, and other yearly events.
Commitment to our community
When we reached out to business in our area about our very first book drive to benefit a local clinic, Ms. Lauren did not hesitate in helping. In fact, she went above and beyond what we expected. Thanks to our community and especially Ms. Lauren and Dance Fusion moms, we were able to collect 645 books in one week!!.
It is a pleasure to work with amazing, dedicated people like the instructors of Dance Fusion. Our daughters have learned so much, not only about dance, but about being a good, community involved person.
If you are looking for a great extra curricular activity for your kids (boys and girls) consider dance; and if you are in our area, consider visiting Dance Fusion. I promise, you will love it as much as your kids.
