The entrance fee is 8 / 7 € (the cheaper price by showing Flama’s valid punch card or Bailes Cubanos membership card). You can pay it by card or cash.

Remember to take your dance shoes or other indoor shoes with you because the shoes used outdoors will be left in the lobby.

Dance Studio Flama is located next to Turku Castle at Linnankatu 84. Bus Line 1 (Market Square–Turku Harbor) will stop just in front of Flama and the bus trip from market square to the dance studio takes around 10 minutes. Check the bus schedule at http://www.foli.fi/ to choose the right time to come. If you decide to come by your own car, there are parking options nearby.

REGGAETON

Reggaeton is the hot dance of Latin nightclubs, and it has been influenced by different dance styles, such as hip hop, dancehall reggae and the Caribbean and South American traditional dances, for example Afro dances. Reggaeton is characterized by strong dynamic fluctuations, polyrhythm and playing with chest and hip isolation in particular. Both strong accents and soft sensual movements are present and they alternate.

SALSA SOLO

Beginners’ solo salsa class takes you to the world of salsa rhythms. During the class, you will get familiar with the basic steps of salsa and we will learn about technique, body movements and rhythmics. This class is suitable for anyone!

BACHATA SOLO

Bachata is a sensual Latin dance that comes originally from the Dominican Republic. During the class, we will concentrate on footwork, technique of hand and arm lines as well as body movements and rhythmics.

Unfortunately Anna had got fever, so her classes will be instructed by our other dance teachers on Thursday, the 25th of October. Bachata Ladies Style will be given by Mirka Saali and Reggaeton by Hanna Heinonen who will start teaching ConfiDance class from next Wednesday onward. The schedule on Thursday, the 25th of October, looks like this:

16:15–17:15 Bachata Ladies Style, beginners – given by Mirka
17:15–18:15 Dancehall Fusion, open level – Veera
18:15–19:15 Reggaeton, beginners – given by Hanna

19:15–20:15 Twerk Technique, open level – Meri
20:15–21:15 Flawless Diva, open level – Meri

See you tomorrow in the classes!

Due to a low number of participants, there will be some permanent changes in our autumn schedule:

  • Tuesday’s Dance Fiesta at 16:15–17:15 will be removed from the autumn schedule from the 30th of October onwards and replaced by Reggaeton for beginners class, instructed by Anna.
  • Wednesday’s Voguing at 16:15–17:15 will be removed from the autumn schedule. In stead, from the 30th of October onwards, there will be a new dance class: ConfiDance, instructed by Hanna Heinonen.
  • Thursday’s Morning Fiesta at 11:00–12:00 will be removed from the autumn schedule already this week, so there will be no Morning Fiesta this Thursday, the 25th of October.

We apologize for these changes.

This class will certainly make you sweat!
