There is a festival called Kesärauha in Turku Castle Park, next to our studio, and this causes changes in traffic and parking arrangements. Unfortunately, our normal customer parking lot is not available due to the festival from the 1st to the 15th of June 2022. However, 9 customer parking spaces have been reserved for Flama’s customers, and they are shown in the map above. If you come to the studio by car, you can take your car to these spaces. Linnankatu and Linnanpuisto are closed in front of the Castle during the festival. If you come on foot or by car, you will have to get around a bit. Please note this and reserve enough time to get to our studio.

We are currently planning our summer and autumn season 2022. Please help us to keep improving our classes and activities by answering to our feedback form. We will raffle a 5 Times Card to our dance studio among all the respondents on the 31st of May 2022. You can find our feedback form here.

 

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback already in advance!

Besides, remember that you can always contact us and give us feedback also by email: [email protected].

Flama is having a friend week from the 9th to the 15th of May, so two people can come to any of our drop-in classes for the price of one. When you buy a single class or you use your punch card, your friend can join the class with you, free of charge! The price of the single class is 14 €.

The offer is only valid for our drop-in classes that can be reserved through our reservation system or by sending us an email to [email protected].

There are classes both at our studio in Linnankatu (Linnankatu 84) and at Pikku-Flama (Eerikinkatu 38).

Pauliina Latva

Pauliina is a dancer and a dance teacher who has also graduated 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.”

Anna Ketopaikka will have a reggaeton workshop for beginners at Dance Studio Flama (Linnankatu 84, Turku) on Saturday, the 2nd of October 2021 at 12:00–13:30 (90 min). This workshop is especially meant for those who do not have any previous experience in reggaeton. Now it is a great time to find a new hobby, so welcome to join our reggaeton workshop.

Sign up for the workshop by purchasing it from our webshop.

If you want to pay for the course with a sport or cultural benefit (Smartum, Tyky, Edenred, ePass, Eazybreak), please register for the course by sending an email to [email protected].

Attention! We do not refund the money if you cannot come to the workshop. In case of illness, you can get a gift card to our studio with the amount of the workshop when providing a valid medical certificate.

Reggaeton is the hot dance of Latin nightclubs and streets, 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, polyrhythms and playing with chest and hip isolation in particular. Both strong accents and soft sensual movements are present and they alternate.

The workshop is instructed by the founder of Dance Studio Flama, Anna Ketopaikka. Anna has danced reggaeton for more than ten years.
