Can anyone attend Fusion? YES! This means your brother, best friend, sister, momma, neighbor, one night stand, coworker, crush, and anyone else you can think of.
Are all the shows the same? Yes, except the last show has judges in attendance and we announce Best Overall School.
What if someone under the age of 18 doesn’t have a I.D.? That’s fine. As long as they are with someone who does, it will be okay.
Are tickets refundable? No, but if you can’t attend, you can sell your ticket to someone else. You would need to email the name change to email@example.com. Failing to do this will result in the person you sold your ticket to NOT being able to get in.
Can I switch my ticket to a different day or showtime? No. Each show has a limited number of tickets and we aren’t able to switch times and dates.
What if I lost the “ticket” I received when I purchased? Those aren’t tickets, they are just reminders. You gain entry into Fusion by the name you gave when you purchased. Everyone’s correct name needs to be on the list to get in. You don’t need that reminder slip of paper.
Is seating first come, first served? Yes. We will start letting people in about 30 minutes before showtime. Everyone will get a seat.
Can I take pictures? Yes! We love it! But you should know that Fusion is allowed to use them for publicity, so if you have some good ones, please send them our way!
Is Fusion on Twitter? Yes! Post your pictures and thoughts with the hashtag #Fusion2015
Is there a limit to the number of tickets I can buy? No. Just be sure to have everyone’s first and last name when you are buying the tickets. For groups of 20 or more, contact Jimmy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there a coat check? No
Is the venue handicap accessible? Yes. Seating is limited, so contact Jimmy at email@example.com if you need special accommodations.
Will I have fun? Yes! Be loud. Be crazy. And be in awe of the talent.

With a concentration on pattern making, HOMIC combines geometric forms and unique textiles to create unisex silhouettes that convey a androgynous lifestyle. Our philosophy is dictated by aesthetic utility; we believe garments reflect a human passion to evolve. HOMIC garments are more than a monetary value, they represent the potential of change.
