: respond to praCh's performance :
" Oh my goodness, what a great response we have
had from your performance. I knew you were wonderful a few
years back, but it is amazing how you've really polished
your craft. The students and teachers that were there loved it.
One more thing I want to say about your work......
I appreciate how you take a horrible history and honor it as your
past and part of your culture. You let the truth speak, even
the very bad, yet still somehow infuse it with the
hope of a better future. Good stuff, praCh!

Since its inception in 1999, attendance has drastically increased, seating over 3,000 attendees, and is now known as the largest student-run Asian directed event at UCSD. FUSION, hosted at UCSD’s RIMAC Arena, has long been an avenue for many of today’s most popular crews, including Jabbawockeez, Kaba Modern & Team Millennia. Winning two years in a row "Event Of The Year" from the Annual V.ENT Dance Awards, FUSION is forecasting to grow even larger. The event showcases performers from all over the nation and has viewers across the globe. Arranged by the efforts solely of college students, the success of FUSION rests on the diligence and determination of MASA and 220. Our goal is to recognize the influence of hip hop music and dance in Asian youth culture and to also to bring to focus the lesser-known elements of a pan-Asian identity.
