Flaman’s spring season started and it has been so wonderful to dance together again! Most of our classes are drop-in classes (black-marked classes in our schedule and they can be found through our reservations system as well) and you can attend them whenever it works best for you. If you have not been able to join your desired classes yet, no worries. You can come to any of our drop-in classes for the first time, no matter on which day or in which month. It is always a good time to start or continue dancing, or even try a completely new dance style for a change.  Register for your drop-in classes through our reservations system.

Some of our spring classes are course-based  (marked as red in our schedule). These courses have separate course fees and you register and commit to attending the entire course when purchasing the course or our Spring 2022 Anytime.
These following courses will start this week, so join them now:
Here are some examples of the courses that start later in February and March:

Here are some courses that have already started but you can still join them for the rest of the courses. Just sign up for them by sending an email to [email protected] and we will calculate the remaining price for your desired course:

In addition, there are still places for leaders in our couple dance courses:

Our whole spring schedule can be found here on our website.

If you have any questions regarding our classes or courses, please do not hesitate to contact us by sending an email to [email protected]. You are warmly welcome to dance with us!

Dear dancers,

Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwestern Finland has published an order for the closure of sports facilities until the 15th of January, so we, unfortunately, have to postpone the start of Flama’s spring season as well as some of the workshops in January. The restrictions are valid at the moment until the 15th of January, so our spring season is supposed to start on Sunday, 16th of January 2022, and it will be extended until the 3rd of June 2022.

We will inform participants of all courses and workshops about these changes and replacement course dates by email. We have over 90 classes per week, so the information will not be available for everyone right away. Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately, we also have to be prepared for the fact that the restrictions may be extended for a longer period, in which case we would have to postpone the start of the season even further. We will let you know as soon as we know for sure when we will be able to open our studio again. However, we truly hope that we can dance with you all again as soon as possible.

Here are the new dates for the workshops canceled in January:

  • Show Burlesque workshops (4.1.2022) > cancelled, the participants will be informed about refunds via email
  • Mirka’s Slow Rumba Basics (5.1.2022) > cancelled, the participants will be informed about refunds via email
  • Reggaeton Basics (5.1.2022) > new date: the 12th of March 2022 at 12:00–13:15
  • Epiphany’s Twerk workshops (6.1.2022) > new date: Saturday, the 29th of January from 12:00 onwards
  • Beginners’ Twerk workshop (8.1.2022) > new date will be published soon
  • Heels Technique Workshop (12.1.2022) >  new date: Thursday, the 24th of February at 18:00–20:00

Our spring 2022 schedule is now published! The spring schedule includes more than 90 different classes per week as well as workshops, dance parties and events on weekends!

We will dance in two locations: at Flama (Linnankatu 84) and at Pikku-Flama (Eerikinkatu 38).

Some of our weekly classes are courses with separate course registrations. You can register for these courses by purchasing them from our webshop. Those courses are marked with the sign * in the schedule. If you purchase Anytime for the whole spring, you can access the courses without separate course fees. Just register for the desired courses by e-mail: [email protected].

Most of our classes are still so-called drop-in classes that you can join whenever it works for you. The first drop-in classes for spring can be booked through our reservation system.

Due to the corona restrictions at the beginning of January, our studio’s spring season begins later. If there are no further restrictions, it will be on Saturday, the 29th of January. During the first week between the 31st and the 6th of February, we have Flama’s introductory week and all our drop-in classes cost only 7 €/class!

We have simply a wonderful dance spring, you are warmly welcome to dance with us at Flama!

Unfortunately, our dance studio remains closed at least until the 18th of April 2021, due to the current corona situation. In other words, there are no classes at our studio for the moment. We will inform all our course participants about this separately via email. We are really sorry for these changes.

We will be constantly following the situation and the government’s latest restrictions. As soon as we know when we can continue our classes at the studio, we will inform you about it on our website and on social media.

Our dance season, all the courses and the Anytime right for those who have bought Spring 2021 Anytime card will be extended until the 5th of August 2021.
We hope to be able to continue our classes at the studio next week. Thank you for your support and for being part of Flama.

Flama’s spring season starts on Monday, the 25th of January 2021. We will also start Matias’ and Anna’s couple salsa courses, Pinja’s couple bachata courses as well as Eve’s dancehall courses next week. Pauliina’s Heels intensive course and Juulia’s Musical Dance course start this week on Saturday. There are still a few places available for our Adult Ballet Course for Beginners, so you can still come and join us for this spring. If you are interested in joining any of our courses later, please send us an email to [email protected] to get further information.

We have reduced the maximum number of participants in all our classes. We hope that you will cancel your reservation as early as possible through our reservation system or by email if you are not able to come to the class. Cancellation must be made no later than 6 hours before the class starts.  

All our drop-in classes can be reserved through our reservation system. Please note that reservations made in the past are valid unless cancelled. Next week from the 25th of 31st of January, all our drop-in classes cost only 6 €/class. Our spring season continues until the 20th of June 2021.

See you soon at our studio!

The authorities’ recommendations and restrictions concerning Southwest Finland have been extended until the 24th of January. As a result, we, unfortunately, have to postpone the actual start of the dance season to the 25th of January and cancel most of our classes between the 11th and 24th of January 2021. We will send more information about the cancellations/changes to all the participants who have registered for the classes and courses by e-mail.

However, between the 11th and 24th of January, we will organize small group classes with the reduced maximum of participants. You can find more information about this below.

The introductory week moves to week 4. From the 25th of January to the 3rd of February, all our drop-in classes cost only 6 € / class. Because our season starts later, our spring season will continue until the 20th of June. As a result, the Anytime right for those who have bought Spring Anytime in advance starts on the 25th of January and ends on the 20th of June 2021. We will extend the validity of all our punch cards purchased after the 30th of June 2020 until the 30th of July 2021.

Matias’ and Anna’s couple salsa courses, Pinja’s courses and classes, as well as Eve’s dancehall courses will be postponed to week 4. Awa Sowe’s workshop will be moved to Saturday, the 6th of March, and the start of the Heels beginners’ course will also be postponed. The Adult Ballet beginner’s course and the Musical Dance course will start as previously announced, but the maximum number of participants for these courses is reduced. We will contact all the participants who have already registered for these courses by email to inform about these changes and to provide further information.

SMALL GROUP TEACHING BETWEEN THE 11TH AND THE 24TH OF JANUARY 2021
Some of our classes will be held as previously announced during the next two weeks, but the number of participants in all of the classes is limited to 9 participants + the teacher. Some of the classes normally held in our smaller hall (Hall 2) will be moved to the large hall (Hall 2) between the 11th and the 24th of 2021. Please note that from the 11th of January to the 17th of January, the classes cost the normal price, since the 6 euro introductory week will be moved to week 4.

Our small group classes can be booked through our reservation system. The registration starts on Friday, the 8th of January at 2 pm.

If your situation has changed and you cannot participate in the small group classes you have booked in advance, please cancel your reservations as soon as possible, so that someone else can take your place from the queue instead.

All the cancellations must be made no later than 6 hours before the class starts. If you do not cancel your class on time, we will charge you the price of the class.You can pay small group classes separately as single classes, with your punch card, or with your refund amounts/gift cards you received when we closed our studio in autumn.

We are really sorry about these changes and we want to thank you for your understanding
and patience. We hope to receive all the possible questions by e-mail: [email protected].

Hopefully, the Covid-19 situation will get better as soon as possible and we can start dancing with our full schedule. Health and strength to all of you!

Flama’s schedule for spring 2021 has now been published, and you can find it here.

Our studio’s spring season starts on Monday, the 11th of January, and ends on Sunday, the 6th of June 2021. During the first week, we will have an introductory week within which each of our classes cost only 6€! Sign up for the classes in advance through our reservation system.

This spring, we have almost 60 different dance classes to choose from every week. Most of our solo classes are drop-in classes, meaning that you can join the classes whenever it suits you, either regularly or irregularly. The only exceptions are Eve Jamami‘s Dancehall Queenstyle Course for Beginners, Dancehall Course, and Dancehall Queenstyle Advanced Course on Wednesdays, Ida‘s Beginners’ Adult Ballet Course on Sundays, and Juulia‘s Musical Dance Course for four Saturdays. Besides, there are separate course fees for our couple dance courses.

Matias, Anna, and Pinja continue their couple salsa and bachata courses also in the spring. In addition to the existing classes, there will be completely new couple salsa and couple bachata courses for beginners. Read more about our couple dance classes here.

Minna Nerg starts as a new dance instructor at Flama this spring, and her new Caribbean Mix and Afrobeats classes will be held on Tuesday evenings. Furthermore, Juulia will have beginners’ Salsa Ladies Style classes on Thursday evenings. On Tuesdays, there will be Pauliina‘s Body Maintenance classes, and Anna‘s Reggaeton for Beginners on Saturdays.

Ida‘s kids’ classes return to our schedule, and they will be held in our familiar small dance hall downstairs (Hall 3) on Tuesday evenings. The classes for 3–4-year-old children take place at 17:15–18:10, and for 5–6-year-olds at 18:15–19:10. While the kids are dancing downstairs, you can for example come and join our Salsa Solo, Reggaeton, or Body Maintenance classes upstairs.

With our Spring 2021 Anytime Card (550 €/450 € for students/seniors), you can unlimitedly join as many classes as you want! The Anytime for the whole season also includes the couple dance courses, Ida’s Adult Ballet Course, Eve’s Dancehall Courses, Juulia’s Musical Dance Course, Pauliina’s Heels Intensive Course, and Anna’s Salsa Ladies Style Project Course. If you have at least four classes a week, this is the cheapest option for you. Get your Anytime access here.
