The inaugural FUSE Festival has announced its lineup of dancers set to perform at this year’s event. More than 20 groups are involved, with styles ranging from Highland dance to hip hop. The audience will even get a chance to try some moves.

“The FUSE Festival is designed to bring Nova Scotians of all cultural backgrounds together through a shared cultural dance experience,” FUSE Festival founder Maria Osende says in a press release.
