Fusion is an annual charity event run by the University of York. Only in its fourth year, Fusion chair Amy Browne describes it as “ themost prestigious event on campus. Fusion strives to achieve a perfect blend of dance, music and fashion through fundraising events throughout the academic year, culminating in a spectacular two-night performance viewed live by more than 2000 of the student population.”
The society and production is based on urban culture and Browne hopes to “incorporate a multiplicity of university societies and external companies, which will all work together to achieve the ultimate goal of raising as much money as possible for charity.”
Fusion 2008 will be held on February 29 and March 1 in Central Hall. Auditions for models and dancers will be held on Saturday and Sunday of Week 4 (November 3 and 4) in Langwith Hall.
The first fundraising event planned for this year is on Monday Week 3 in Vudu Lounge, in the city centre. Theme: ‘Film Stars and Fashion Icons’. The first of Fusion’s charities this year will be the children’s charity SNAPPY, who work with children with special needs in Yorkshire.
Browne says: “Whether you’re interested in dancing, DJing, designing, urban music or fashion, check us out on one of our Facebook groups or simply join us at our first exciting event!”
