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!

JOHANNA & OMAR

Johanna and Omar are versatile and experienced dancers and teachers and they teach i.a. bachata, cha cha, kizomba and salsa together. Through their I Dance Helsinki -organization, Omar and Johanna have long been building the Afro-Latin scene in Helsinki by teaching, bringing foreign artists to Finland and arranging festivals and parties in a weekly basis.

Johanna has danced several different dance styles. Johanna won Salsa European Championship in 2010, so she has a lot of knowledge about dance technique and that knowledge she wants to share with her students. As a teacher, she is known for her demanding but encouraging and clear teaching.

Omar’s dancing career has begun with ballroom dance, but it changed later to Afro-Latin dances. Omar’s strengths are musicality as well as his smooth and clear lead. He encourages and provides tools for each individual student’s progress and improvement.

For Omar and Johanna, it is important that everything learnt during the classes can be applied in a social dance setting. They emphasize the importance of leading and following as well as the learning of the basics, not forgetting musicality. Above all, dancing should be fun and feel good.

“Our main focus is that you learn, while having fun! 🙂 We provide clear instruction and we focus on each and everyone’s development individually. Our training focuses on giving you the tools to become the social dancer everyone wants to dance with at the parties!
At the courses you’ll learn technique, musicality, body awareness & movement and patterns for social dancing. In these classes you’ll learn how to lead & follow new  moves smoothly and make them comfortable & easy for you and your partner, with gracious style! All the moves are for social dancing, so don’t expect long show choreo routines.”
