Ballroom Fusion Night returns to the Gulfport Casino this Sunday January 11th!  All social dancers from a diversity of dance scenes, ranging from Swing to Latin/Salsa to Tango to Ballroom to West-Coast to Blues and more, are encouraged to attend and help create this partner-dancing fusion!  Ballroom Fusion Night is social dancing "outside the box", featuring lessons and music for over 30 different partner dances!  We've modernized the ballroom-dance concept, expanding it to include all of today's most popular partner dances, plus exciting new dance music.  Dancing happens 8-11pm, and most songs during the evening support multiple dances.  The night includes a Prize Giveaway with free passes to upcoming events.  All ages are welcome, and no partner is needed.


This Sunday's Ballroom Fusion Night features dance champion instructor and Hustle Hall-of-Famer, Debra Kee, teaching Hustle in the Beginning Lesson 6-7pm and Hustle/Swing Fusion (ECS & WCS) in the Intermediate Lesson 7-8pm.  That's followed by open Dancing 8-11pm.  Just $8 admission ($5 for students) includes EVERYTHING...that means you get both lessons essentially for free, lessons you'd normally pay $10 each to take!
