Consisting of past members of the Infusion 2020 management team, the Infusion 2021 management team has gained considerable knowledge and expertise by traveling across the nation and attending a variety of Filmi-Fusion competitions. After eight successful years in the filmi-fusion circuit, the Infusion board firmly believes in the values the founders passed down to them, pledging to move forward with the same sincerity, hospitality, and charity. Above all, the Infusion management team has come together to organize the best Filmi-Fusion dance competition in the nation. After breaking the barriers with a four camera angle HD live stream and successful special guests such as Miss America 2014, Nina Davuluri, and music artists like Jay Sean, Raja Kumari, Manpreet Toor, and Raaginder, the Infusion management team is back for its ninth season and promises to make it bigger and better than before!
After careful consideration and thought surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to announce that we have decided to cancel Infusion 2021. While this was not an easy decision to come to, the Infusion 2021 Board realizes that this is in the best interest of our board, committee, performers and audience members. COVID-19 has impacted many lives around the world and our frontline workers are still fighting hard to keep it under control. Infusion advocates for prioritizing health and safety, and we do not encourage any team to break social distancing guidelines. Although a conventional competition is not possible for this season, we still plan on bringing the heat to our community this Spring. Check out our plans for a virtual show in the video below!
The venue of Infusion 2021 is the prestigious Eisenhower Auditorium, which can accommodate up to 2,500 people. Eisenhower Auditorium is Penn State’s primary theatrical performance space and is also one of the largest stages in the country. Opened in 1974 and later named after the former University President, Milton S. Eisenhower, the modern style auditorium hosts more than 200 events each year. Famous artists and ensembles have graced Eisenhower’s stage and mesmerized the State College community throughout the years.
Last year, Infusion held Penn State’s Best Dance Crew, the annual intra-collegiate dance competition at The Pennsylvania State University. Several of the finest teams came together to showcase their talent and love for dance for its seventh year in a row on Saturday, January 25th, 2020 in Schwab Auditorium.Check out our Gallery!
What is THON?
The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance MaraTHON is an annual, year-round fundraising event for The Four Diamonds Fund, at the Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA. Over the past 40 years, the students of Penn State have raised over $80 million and continue to lend support to thousands of children and families fighting pediatric cancer. The year culminates in a no-sitting, no-sleeping, 46-hour dance maraTHON held every February. Over the years, THON has raised more than $136 million to support families in paying for pediatric cancer treatment and facilitate research. This collective effort, involving more than 16,000 students, has become one of Penn State’s greatest and most unifying traditions. As a percentage of Infusion's proceeds goes towards THON, your sponsorship will benefit a great cause.
