The faculty at Fusion is made up of dancers who work hard to be the best at what they do.
Each of us always strived to be the best we could be as students and now our goal has progressed to the best teachers and coaches.
We have all experienced dance
in a different way which makes us a very diverse group.  Each of us have so much to offer and are so excited to have been brought
together to mold Fusion!
It is our goal to make each and every student have the best experience imaginable!!!

Missy was born and raised in  New Orleans.  She began performing and competing at a very young age.  She worked and performed as a dancer as much as she could and later  went on to pursue her carreer in Los Angeles.  She had received a month long scholarship to study at Tremaine Dance Center in North Hollywood, CA where she then  was awarded a year long scholarship.  During her nine years in L.A, she consistently worked,  performed and  continued taking classes from the top dancers/choreographers in the world.  Her credits are vast and she has worked with several well known choreographers and dancers such as Joe Tremaine, Doug Caldwell, Mark Meismer, Wade Robson, Brian Freidman, Chris Dupre', Keri LaGrand, Bradley Rapier, and so many more.  While in L.A. she never stopped teaching.  Now, as the owner of Fusion, she is driven to teach her students all that she has learned through her journeys and she strives to make her love of dance evident to all.
  

Kati Lanner has been involved in dance for the last 21 years. She has studied classical ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, modern, lyrical, and hip hop, as well as many dance/drill team styles, such as pom pon and character. She received her teaching certificate in May 2004 from Fusion Performing Arts Center. She was an assistant teacher there for several years until she relocated for college to Baton Rouge, LA. While at LSU, she was a member of the LSU Golden Girls dance team and studied Classical Ballet in the LSU Ballet program. She continued to study all styles of dance at A Chorus Line dance academy, where she acted as an assistant teacher for owner and choreographer, Gigi Hidad. Her most active work within the past 6 years has been with American All Star, where she was employed as a summer dance camp instructor and choreographer. She worked with both junior high and high school dance teams around the U.S., while directing and performing in places such as Paris, France, Honolulu, HI, Orlando, FL, and several colleges across the nation. Since this partnership, she has been the primary choreographer for a number of dance teams in Louisiana and has judged several dance competitions and tryouts in the Southeast region of the United States. She is very happy to return to her Fusion family!

 
Abby was a member of Competitive Dance Teams for  twelve years and has won several awards. She received her teacher's certificate in 2002 and  has been teaching for Fusion since 2004.  She has always shown many leadership skills.  As a member of Affinity, Fusion's Competitive Team, Abby was elected by her instructors as Team Leader.  Abby was also a member of the Chapelle High Steppers and is so passionate about dancing. She is a huge part of Fusion and it's success.
 
 

We are so happy to have Erin back to the Fusion team.  Erin has been dancing her whole life.  She was a member of the award winning Elite Competition Team as a child then became a faculty member.  She was a huge part of Ground Zero and became a staple faculty member at Fusion.  After having her little girl, she decided to take a break from dance to share in her life.  We are so happy that she has decided to come back to our team.  Erin is overly qualified and loves sharing all that she has to offer.  She is now, along with other classes, Fusion's stand in Ballerina!  She has taken on the roll and is doing a fabulous job.  We are very lucky to have her.
