International Irish dance virtuosos Fusion Fighters have released another brilliant dance video, this time from the Broesler School of Irish Dance, in New Jersey, to raise awareness for a children’s cancer foundation.
Fusion Fighters is a group of international Irish dancers. They are currently on tour in the United States on their #CreateNotHate tour, a tour of Irish dance video projects that raise awareness of great causes
Creative Director Chris Naish told IrishCentral the new tour #CreateNotHate aims to connect “dance schools and communities around the world through dance."

Naish explained “Most recently we worked together with 'The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation' that helps kids who are fighting cancer and the Broesler School of Irish dance.
"We decided to recreate our viral video 'Fusion Orchestra' with the school in aid of the foundation.”
Already the video has over 45k views.
Together Naish and his childhood friend, Jamie Hodges, are using their platform and skill to aid community projects around the world. So far, they are bringing attention to issues, including cancer, road safety, special needs or anything the community they visit is struggling with.
Naish told IrishCentral “We have worked with some fantastic projects since being out here including 'Miracles In Motion' which is a special needs dance company, we did a collaboration and it was one of the best experiences of my life.
This video is created to support the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, whose tagline is “Kids Helping Kids Fight Cancer.” Founded by Joe McDonough Andrew’s father. His son “battled leukemia, septic shock and complications of childhood cancer for 167 days before passing away on July 14, 2007, at the age of 14. Andrew’s B+ blood type became his family’s and friends’ motto throughout his fight against childhood cancer — to “Be Positive”.”
