During Baby Latino classes, we will dance and have fun together with babies! The class is meant for 3–12 months-old babies and their parents. You can participate in the class when the babies are able to hold their head up. Baby Latino is a shared dance moment between babies and their parents. Both babies and their parents can enjoy the movement and the rhythm together during these classes, and you will also get sweat and meet other people in the same life situation.
 
During the class, we will dance to happy Latin rhythms. We will dance with easy and cheerful movements and dance styles, such as salsa, bachata, merenque, cha-cha, and reggaeton. You can have the baby in your lap or for example in a baby carrier on front of your body. Please bring also your own blanket with you for your baby.

What is the dance class like?

This is a dance class designed for kids. During the class, we will explore the world of dance inspired by games and stories. Most importantly, we will have fun as a group. The classes improve sense of rhythm, body control, flexibility, coordination and memory. The goal is to find the joy of dance and movement!

The classes are instructed by Ida Martikainen.

Ida is a present and gentle dance instructor who loves bodily expression. She has completed Basic Education in the Art of Dance between 2004–2013 in Jyväskylä Dance Institute, majoring in classical ballet and having contemporary dance, jazz dance and repertoire dance as her minors. In addition, she has been involved in several dance projects both as a dancer and as a choreographer. According to Ida, dancing is a journey to one’s own body and in the way to attach to a common space. She thinks that the most important element of the dance class is to stay present in the same place and time: the momentary synchronization and the common sense of the bodies. Through her teaching, Ida wants to get the dancers to feel their bodies powerful and bright.

Tomorrow on Sunday, the 25th of August, we will have the last park dances of this summer next to Turku Castle at 5 – 8 pm.

The last park class is pilates and the class for the beginners is held at 5 – 6 pm.

The price of the class is 5 euros and you can pay it by card, cash or for example with Smartum vouchers. The class is held by Sarianna Jakobsson, who will also teach pilates at Dance Studio Flama weekly on Mondays at 7.15 – 8.15 pm.

Pilates is a method of body conditioning created by Joseph Pilates. It is used to develop eg. optimal posture, to strengthen the middle body and to deepen breathing. The movements can be adapted to every fitness level, so the class is suitable for everyone. Bring your own pilates mat or a towel with you.

The location is on the harbour side of Turku Castle. Bus number 1 takes you just next to the castle.

You are warmly welcome!

Flama’s most popular classes seem to be fully booked, week after week, but there are quite a lot of last-minute booking cancellations or uncancelled reservations as well. So that as many people as possible could participate in our dance classes, we will introduce a new cancellation policy.

If you have to cancel your reservation, you can do it yourself 6 hours before the class starts at the latest via Avoinna24 system or by sending an email to info@flama.fi. Attention! We hope that all the cancellations will be done either via Avoinna24 or via email, not for example as Instagram-direct messages or via Facebook. If you have to cancel your reservation less than 6 hours before the class takes place, in case of a sudden illness, do it by sending an email to info@flama.fi.

If you do not cancel your class (you do not show up and you have not informed us about it in advance), we will mark a time used in your punch card next time you come to dance with us. With this policy, we hope to reduce the number of uncancelled reservations to make sure that all those willing to join will fit to the dance classes.

We’re open during the Winter Holidays. All classes will be held normally.

Warmly welcome!

Couple Salsa Beginners Intensive Course

Would you like to learn to dance couple salsa? This intensive course starts from the very basics, so you do not need any prior knowledge about salsa dancing. Anna is always instructing in English when there are people who don’t speak Finnish. Start a new great hobby and come and have fun with us!

During the course, you will get familiar with the basic steps of couple salsa and we will practice rhythmics, some simple figures as well as techniques of both leading and following.

SCHEDULE ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 19
11.30-13.30 Couple Salsa Beginners

Place: Dance Studio Flama, Linnankatu 84
Price: 25 / 20 € (students, seniors)

Register for the course by purchasing it from our webshop:

– students/seniors, discount: https://flama.fi/tuote/parisalsan-alkeistiiviskurssi-opisk/

You can sign up for the course with or without a pair. The principle of the class is to change the pair all the time, so that everyone gets to dance. However, if you want to dance only with your own pair, that is also possible. Just let the instructor know about this in the beginning of the course.

And yes, you don’t need to have had any previous dance experiences prior to this course.
