Unfortunately, the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwestern Finland has today, the 14th of January, extended the closure of group sports facilities by two weeks. As a result, we are not able to start our dance season yet on the 16th of January. AVI’s new closure decision is valid until the 28th of January, so we have to postpone the start of Flama’s spring season again. Based on this, we will start our dance season on Saturday, the 29th of January.

Our dance season and the spring Anytime rights will be extended to the 17th of June. All the courses will be delayed, but each course will have the same number of classes as originally planned. We will update the new course schedules on our website as soon as possible. The validity of all our punch cards will be extended during the closing period. The introductory week will be held from the 31st of January to the 6th of February 2022.

New workshop cancellations:
– Ray Herrera’s workshops will be cancelled, and we hope to have him as our guest in Finland some other time
– Spring Afro-Latin Party on the 22nd of January will be postponed to the 9th of April
– Couple Salsa Workshop for Beginners on the 22nd of January will be cancelled, the participants can join the similar workshops on Saturday, the 26th of February, the 2nd of April or the 14th of May instead.

Dear dancers!

Due to the current corona situation and the latest government policies, we have to keep Flama’s entire studio closed at least until the 13th of April. All dance classes and workshops will be cancelled within that time. The validity period of all dance cards will be extended, and the lessons of the couple salsa and bachata courses will be replaced by extra sessions later in June. We will send email to those who have signed up for the courses and workshops and provide further information regarding their cancellations.

Thank you for all of you who have been supporting us so far. We are sorry for all these changes and hope for patience and peace for everyone in this exceptional situation. Take care of yourself and each other, love and strength for all. ❤

– Anna Tolppa, Flama’s entrepreneur and CEO

Next Monday, Matias Löyttyniemi’s solo and couple salsa classes are exceptionally replaced by Oona Varinowski’s Twerk Technique, Dancehall Queen Style and Kizomba Ladies Style classes. Matias’ salsa classes will return back to the weekly schedule on Monday, the 10th of February.


Sign up for Oona’s classes through our reservation system. In addition to the 3rd, there will be Dancehall Queenstyle classes on the 13th, the 18th and the 20th of February as well as Oona’s Dancehall Queen Style and Kizomba Ladies Style Workshops on Saturday, the 15th of February. Sign up for the workshops by purchasing them at our webshop.

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.

New Class: ConfiDance

Confidance is a fast-paced dance class during which different styles from Latin dance types to Belly dance, twerk dance and dancehall are used. The choreographies and step sequences are easy, with the aim of enjoying the movement and different rhythms. The class emphasizes attitude and feeling and encourages everyone to accept themselves as they are.

Meri has got the flue, so she is not able to come to instruct her classes tonight on Thursday, unfortunately. We will have great classes anyway, since Bouncy Crew‘s Emilia Söderholm will come to give her Twerk class at 19.15–20.15, and at 20.15–21.15 we will have exceptionally Hanna Heinonen’s ConfiDance class. We apologise for these changes, even though we will have awesome dance classes with these other teachers. See you later tonight!

HANNA HEINONEN

Hanna Heinonen is a personal trainer, trained masseur, occupational therapist as well as group exercise and FAF’s fascial instructor. Hanna found the joy of dance at the age of 14, when she started oriental dance. Ever since, she has trained many different kind of styles. During Hanna’s classes, the focus is on the joy, improvement of self-confidence and enjoying of one’s own body.

Hanna will also come to give a workshop at Dance Studio Flama in a month, on Sunday the 11th of November. There are still places available for this works, so sign up by sending an email to [email protected]. The event can be found over here, so let your friends know about the workshop too: https://www.facebook.com/events/343586689717716/.

Due to a small amount of participants, Veera’s House class on Wednesdays from 18:15 to 19:15 will be replaced by Meri’s Beginners’ Twerk class from next week onwards, so already on Wednesday, the 26th of September. We apologize for any inconvenience. In other words, there will be four twerk classes a week until the end of the autumn season: on Mondays from 17:15–18:18 (beginners) and 18:15–19:15 (intermediate), on Wednesdays from 18:15–19:15 and on Thursdays from 19:15–20:15.The content of the beginners’ class on Monday and Wednesday is the same, so this assures that more people can enjoy twerk every week.

The classes are really popular, so please sign up for the classes in advance via our reservation system here.

Our teachers Anna and Meri have got the flu, so there are some changes in our schedule tomorrow on Thursday. Anna will take it easy tomorrow, so there won’t be Morning Fiesta and Reggaeton class will be held by Juulia Niemi at 18:15–19:15. However, Anna will give the Bachata Ladies Style class at 16:15–17:15.
 
Meri is still sick, so tomorrow it is Emilia Söderholm who will twerk with you and the class is TwerkOut! at 19:15–20:15. Flawless Diva class at 20:15–21:15 is given by Pauliina Latva.
 
Welcome to dance with us tomorrow again!
