Both tradition and innovation are encouraged at Saffron. While the Folkloric and Oriental programs ground students in traditional and core bellydance movement, the Fusion program allows students to explore more modern applications of their bellydance technique. Experimentation is encouraged and allows faculty to draw on their diverse dance training backgrounds to create exciting Fusion material for students. Past Fusion choreographies have included elements from jazz, ballet, classical Indian dance, Persian dance, salsa, and Balkan Folk dance. Musical influences range from contemporary Top 40 hits to world music to the Blues.
