Partner dances involve coordinated dancing of two partners. Partner dances have been sanctuaries of healing, emotional expression, social interactions, connection and joy for many generations. Rooted in rich cultural traditions, these dances have evolved to be a refuge from the daily burdens and a place for play and fun.

No partner is necessary to join partner dance workshops at Interfusion Festival. Pairs are made on the spot and partners are encouraged to switch multiple times throughout workshops.
