The Oriental Fusion is the integration of different cultures through the art of dance. We recognize the rich heritage of nomadic peoples, through the ethnic movement, showing a beautiful language based on Arabic, Hindu and Flamenco dances. Retain the essence of each one to show them with rhythms that evoke riches and ancients cultures in same world.

The snake movement and sensual shapes of Arabic dance, the joy, color and expressiveness of India, the strength and passion of Flamenco dance. They complement each other in a magical and natural way to enjoy the senses and inspire the spirit.

The finality of Patricia Passo School methodology is to develop a technique based on ancient movement analyses, and the contribution of tribal influences from several nomad people, who have enriched the Oriental Dance during its development. The school bases its technique in pelvic movement that originates this dance.

Therefore, the movements that compose its vocabulary remain firmly planted on folklore of peoples and oriental tribes, making fusion with the vocabulary of Arabic dance with the elements of Hindus, flamencos, folks…. Making to persist in the time the wealth gestures and complex turns, very characteristics of ancient rituals.

All this study is systematized by Patricia Passo who also works with the concepts of learning from modern and contemporary dance, developing a dance that stylize the movement and studying it as a technique not less complex than any other academic dance.

Patricia Passo, for ten years being a teacher of Alicia Alonso Superior Institute of Dance, unites the principles of western academic dance to the anthropological study of oriental dances, with the support of Rey Juan Carlos University.

Fusion Art- Patricia Passo School is an attachment center of Rey Juan Carlos University.
