FUSE Dance Company is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support and foster the growth and development of the performing arts in Southern California through performances, dance education, and dance community collaboration programs. The company was established by director Joshua Romero in February of 2010. Since then FUSE has participated in many Southern California dance festivals and events including the Vox Dance Theatre Showcase in Los Angeles, Nebula’s HHII Dance Festivals in Santa Barbara, Raw Orange County Showcase, MixMatch Dance Festival and twice for the Palm Desert Choreographer Dance Festival. For four consecutive years FUSE has performed for the Lineage Dance Festival in Pasadena and The SoCal Dance Invitational produced by Nannette Brodie Dance Company. FUSE has also been privileged to perform outside of California by participating in The Men in Dance Festival in Seattle, WA, the Dumbo Dance Festival in Brooklyn, NY, the Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, and at the Ballet Austin Ventures Theatre.


Artistic Director, Joshua D. Romero began his dance training at Cal State University, Fullerton. While at Cal State University, Fullerton he performed and choreographed for the annual fall and spring concerts.  He was also a member of CSUF’s Dance Repertory Theatre and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Dance in fall of 2008.  Following college, one of his pieces Beyond the Body was chosen as the 2nd place winner at the Palm Desert Choreographer Dance Festival in 2008, and in 2010, his piece Me and Jack, made it as a finalist.  His extensive experience in dance, music, and arts evolved through his dance memberships and trainings with Nickerson-Rossi Dance Company, Palindrome Dance Company, RhetOracle Dance Company, Bare Dance Company and DeFore Dance Studio.  He also worked with very well known artists of Limon Dance Company, Erick Hawkins Dance Company, and choreographer Victor Kabaniev. He currently shares his passion as an instructor/choreographer to all dance students of Defore’s Dance Studio, Claylees Dance Academy, and at the Orange County School of the arts. Joshua will be completing his masters degree in Dance from the University of California, Irvine in 2017.
