This year we have a new addition to the PUX weekend experience. Our community member Eleanor Chen will be leading some discussions before the dance each night geared toward inclusion, helping participants interact with the event more mindfully, as well as providing a space for people to process their personal experience at the event.

If you are a fusion dancer, you've probably had a late night conversation about the fusion dancing community - what the people are like, what the culture is like, and what your individual experience is like when you come out and dance. Come help bring those conversations into the foreground and join a safer space to express yourself.

These discussions are donation based, and they’ll take place for about an hour before each night of dancing. If you’d like to have thoughtful discussion and share space with your community we encourage everyone to attend. If you can contribute to support this we ask for a donation on a $5-20 sliding scale for each night of discussions. If you can’t contribute you should still absolutely show up and participate!
