Anna Kuparinen
Anna has a versatile dance background, since she started dancing with salsa and other Cuban dances but soon continued also with Urban dance styles, such as hip hop, reggaeton and commercial dance. Anna has danced in different dance groups both in Finland and in Australia, and she has studied and got inspiration from different countries (inter alia the USA, Australia, Japan and Germany).

In her own style, Anna combines different Urban street dance styles and often adds some Latin vibes into them. She finds the role of dynamics very important in dancing and she aims at teaching the difference between soft and sharp movements and how they can be combined in one’s own style of dancing.

DANCE TECHNIQUE

SEXY REGGAETON
Reggaeton is a genre of music and dance originating from Cuba and Puerto Rico and it is nowadays the most popular dance style in South and Mid America, especially among the youth. Reggaeton is characterized by strong dynamic fluctuations, polyrhythm and playing with isolation.

CARIBBEAN PARTY
Caribbean Party Class offers a party in the Caribbean style! We will enjoy Caribbean music and body movements of soca, dancehall, salsa, reggaeton etc. We will turn the music on, set all the worries aside and just let the rhythm take us along. In the beginning of the class, we will mainly have series of steps straight to the music, after which we will create a longer choreography towards the end of the class. This class will certainly make you sweat!

WHO IS ELINA VALTONEN?
Elina has worked as a dance artist in ten different countries. Most recently, she worked for one and a half years in an Afro-Caribbean contemporary dance company in Canada. Alongside North America, she has also been able to tour the Caribbean. As a result, multiculturalism is one of the greatest sources of her inspiration and Elina loves holistic, sweaty and animal dance. Her passion is to combine Afro and Western body movements.
Elina is, in her own words, “passionate about sharing the liberating message of the dance that directs us towards the truth”.
