Contemporary dance is an “umbrella style” that refers to many different dance styles. Contemporary dance has been influenced by various types of art and our contemporary classes combine elements of both contemporary and jazz dance, having the focus especially on finding the right flow of the movement as well as taking advantage of the gravity while moving. We will get familiar with floorwork and do moving routines to varying and compelling music. The classes contain instructed improvisation exercises that will release one’s own creativity. At the end of the class, we will practice a choreography combining everything learnt earlier.

Teacher: Pauliina Latva

Pauliina is a dancer and a dance teacher who will soon also graduate as a physiotherapist (The University of Applied Sciences). Pauliina has practiced various dance styles, such as contemporary dance, show dance, hip hop, breakdance, acrobatics as well as salsa. Her strength is that she utilizes the techniques of different dance styles, regardless of the dance style in question. She spent her autumn 2016 in New York studying dance independently, in addition to which she has developed herself as a dancer through various courses and workshops both in Finland and abroad, for example in London, New York, and Los Angeles. Pauliina is also a Personal Trainer (TYA/South Africa).

As a teacher, Pauliina is inspiring and encouraging. Her dance classes are filled with versatile dance know-how and good feeling, and typically different dance styles are open-mindedly combined. Her classes teach you how to listen to the music and interpret it with your own body movements. “During my dance classes, I want to create an open and safe space where one can learn through experimentation and shared insights! My main job as a dance teacher is to motivate others to become interested in the versatility of their own bodies and the opportunities they create.”

LEVEL DESCRIPTIONS
The numbers of years of training mentioned in the level descriptions are directional, as everyone develops at their own pace. Especially at the second and third levels, we encourage you to stay for several seasons, as there are a lot of things to learn. If you are wondering which level suits you the best, feel free to contact us and ask more: info@flama.fi. Repeating and practicing the basics always improves enormously, so we also recommend attending courses that are lower than your actual skill level.

 

LEVEL 1 (new beginners)
This level starts from scratch, so no previous dance experience is required. At this level, we will learn basic techniques, the most common basic figures, and technique of leading and following. In addition, we will get excited about the wonderful atmosphere of Cuban salsa in general!

 

LEVEL 1+ (0.5–1 year)
This level is ideal for those who know the basics of couple salsa and have attended classes weekly for about six months. The most common basics like enchufla, di le que no, di le que si, setenta, sacala and vacilala are already familiar to you. This course continues with the basics, expands the knowledge, and we practice to vary and combine already learned basics in new ways.

 

LEVEL 2 (1–2 years)
If you have been dancing couple salsa weekly for about a year, you feel you know the basics of couple salsa and dancing with other dance partners is already going well, this is probably the right level for you. We will deepen our skills from the basic figures to slightly more challenging variations and figures, and we will also delve more into the use of the body than before.

 

LEVEL 3 (about 2–3 years)
The third level is suitable for those who have been dancing couple salsa weekly for about a couple of years. At this level, skills that we have become familiar with at the previous levels will be deepened, varied and practiced. In addition, we will learn new figures and enhance the use of the body.
LEVEL 4 (about 2.5 years +)
This level is suitable for those who have danced couple salsa for several years. At this level, skills that we have become familiar with at the previous levels will be deepened, varied, perfected and practiced. In addition, we will learn new figures and challenge the use of the body. At this level, there is already a greater focus than before on interpreting music, styling, and how to turn dance into a shared musical experience.

Eve ‘Jamami’s’ still have some places available for August, so welcome to join us for the new courses in August!

During this summer, Eve will have two separate courses, one in June and the other one in August.
