Hot Night Fusion Weekend
Ever since the dawn of social dancing, people have been combining dance styles into an intertwined fusion of dance expression. Hot Night Fusion Weekend is a full weekend event that caters to the roots of the fusion community, and how it has grown in Colorado.
This year, Hot Night Fusion Weekend is all about creating a container space for "ReConnection"- to your dance practice, your dance partners, and your dance community. During the day you can expect high-quality instruction from amazing partner dance instructors so whether you want to deepen your experience with partnered connection or incorporate crossover influences into your current style, HNFW has workshops for you.
In the evenings our DJs will play music designed for crossover/fusion dancing, allowing you to play with a variety of dance styles and techniques; creating space for different dance backgrounds to connect on the dance floor. All of this amazing fusion and connection is happening in the Performing Arts District in downtown Denver, with a vast variety of original Denver cuisine, bars, breweries, and cafes within walking distance. Join us for an unforgettable weekend in the Mile High City this September!

We have looked far and wide for the perfect DJs and musicians to be part of Dance Blender. All of them are versatile in what they play and are ready to have the music dance your socks off, for over 20 hours of parties across two rooms!
We will be having two rooms during the main party with changing themes every hour throughout the night. These themes are dance style agnostic and the majority of the music played will not be of a particular dance style, more details to come.
