Here at Fuso Danse we believe that the dancers are the studio. We pride ourselves on giving our dancers the best experiences in and out of class. Our core values (Support, Growth, Accountability, Respect, Integrity & True to You) create an environment where you can feel comfortable, engaged, energized and part of the Fuso family.
The studio has grown since it's inception in 2013. We now operate 2 main branches (Morningside & Kloof) and have extended our dance styles to include not only Solo Dance but also K-Pop. Our social and competition faculties create opportunites for everyone to enjoy, whether you want to get technical or just let your hair down after a day at work.
Solo Style Dancing.
This becomes very attractive to people who are keen to learn different dance styles but who dont have partners to dance with. Dancers wishing to work on the more technical aspects of solo style can register for our foundation training classes.
Our classes can include up to 5 different styles in 1 class depending on the routine:
Ballroom (waltz, tango)
Latin (cha cha, rumba, samba)
Country (2 Step, polka)
Swing (east coast swing, west coast swing)
Originally from South Korea, K-Pop became hugely popular through the song/dance Gangnam Style and Baby Shark. K-pop is a mixture of Hip hop, heels dance and pop music. The dance routines center around the music selected. Pop boy bands bring a more explosive hard hitting hip hop style, while girl bands create a more energetic and sassy feel to the dances.
No matter what style you would like to choose, dancing is a fun way to get your friends or family involved and enjoy doing something together. And making new friends of course!
