Fusion Intensives

"The ultimate aim of the Fusion Program is not only to enable our beneficiaries to attain world best standards but to empower them to surpass these and to create new legacies for the performing arts around the world."
Kenneth Schneider, President of The Apogee Foundation

Beginning in 1999, the Foundation began offering innovative multidisciplinary training opportunities to enable the world's most gifted emerging artists to achieve their fullest potential on the world stage.

In 2006, Apogee began consolidating these methodologies into its trademark Fusion Program: a trailblazing project designed to enable world class performing artists from both Eastern and Western cultures and training backgrounds to expand their artistic awareness and expressive skills through and beyond each others' traditional modes of thought and performance, and thereby to empower them to achieve new forms and levels of human potential on the world stage.

In implementing its Fusion Program, Apogee unifies world best practices from both Eastern and Western, artistic and scientific sources in all relevant fields that can enable performing artists to attain and to exceed existing world best standards. In integrating these components and bringing them to bear at critical points in performing artists' careers, the Fusion Program achieves results greater than can be produced by any sum of its parts.

The Artistic Development division of Apogee's Fusion Programs builds on Apogee's long history of collaboration with leading dance, drama and music training institutions to provide the Foundation's beneficiaries with access to the fullest and most integrated possible spectrum of educational and experiential methodologies.

in collaboration with global networks of leaders in the medical, therapeutic and other professional communities to provide its beneficiaries with the fullest possible complement of technologies empowering them to flourish both as artists and as human beings.
