FUSA, A French-USA Dance Festival

by Althea Dance company & Fondation des États-Unis

FUSA is the result of the encounter between Althea Dance Company and the Fondation des États-Unis (FEU). Together, they are creating a socially engaged Franco-American contemporary dance festival. The festival presents a choreographic vocabulary inspired by the crossing of two cultures who meet, nourish each other, and explore together. FUSA, by fostering creativity, promotes and reinforces the friendship between France and the US through movement. The festival offers the selected artists a performance opportunity to freely embody their creative expression.

FUSA takes the form of a biennale: in 2024, it will take place in New York at the International House, on August 3rd, before returning to Paris in 2025.

Prior to the festival, Althea Dance Company holds its annual contemporary dance workshop – In Motion – designed for semi-professional and professional dancers who wish to develop their technique and creativity. The workshop offers technical classes, partnering classes, repertoire and choreographic sessions; "In Motion 2024" will take place at the International House in New York City from July 29 till August 2.
