Fusion Partner Dancing in Nelson 

What is it?

Improvised dancing in sync with a partner, to any music.

How does it work?

“Lead and Follow” enables a smooth synchronized connection; 

“Contextualizing” not “memorizing”  enables improvising together.

Is it hard to learn?

Not hard to learn.  It takes a bit of practice to get good, but

it is fun right from the beginning ! 

Why should I attend Monday evening ?  

  • 1/2 hr. mini-lesson, with Peter
  • 2 hours of dancing to mixed upbeat playlist.

Why Partner Dancing is Good For You

ReferencesfromPsychologyToday,  Jan 2023

  • Builds strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance;
  • Impacts mood, happiness, and resilience;
  • Enhances memory, orientation, and concentration.
  • When we synchronize to a beat, our brains release cocktails of “happy chemicals”  of endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, etc. Humans feel more aware, alive, and resourceful, and more able to push through fear and tolerate pain.
