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 want to remind you of our cancellation policies.

If you have to cancel your reservation, you can do it yourself 6 hours before the class starts at the latest via our reservation system or by sending an email to info@flama.fi. Attention! We hope that all the cancellations are done either via Avoinna24 or via email, not for example as Instagram-direct messages, text 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 cancel your class less than six hours before the class starts or you do not cancel your class at all (you do not show up and you have not informed us about it in advance), you should pay for the class as a single payment or we can mark one session 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 as many dancers as possible will fit to the dance classes.

We recommend everyone in the queue to check their email for example five hours before the class starts, since that is when most of the cancellations are already done. If you were not able to join the class after your check and you think that you are not able to make to the class in a shorter notice, we kindly ask you to cancel your spot in the queue, so that others have better possibilities to get to the class instead. Furthermore, when you cancel your spot in the queue, you do not have to worry about cancelling the class later via email.

Thank you for your cooperation, hoping to see you soon at our studio.

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 class is 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.

The authorities’ recommendations and restrictions concerning Southwest Finland have been extended until the 24th of January. As a result, we, unfortunately, have to postpone the actual start of the dance season to the 25th of January and cancel most of our classes between the 11th and 24th of January 2021. We will send more information about the cancellations/changes to all the participants who have registered for the classes and courses by e-mail.

Between the 11th and 24th of January, we will organize small group classes with the reduced maximum of participants. You can find and register for these classes through our reservation system.

Ida‘s kids’ classes return to our schedule, and they will be held in our familiar small dance hall downstairs (Hall 3) on Tuesday evenings. The classes for 3–4-year-old children take place at 17:15–18:10. While the kids are dancing downstairs, you can for example come and join our Salsa Solo or Body Maintenance classes upstairs.

Most of our solo classes are drop-in classes, meaning that you can join the classes whenever it suits you, either regularly or irregularly. The only exceptions are Eve Jamami’s Dancehall Queenstyle Course for Beginners, Dancehall Course, Dancehall Queenstyle Advanced CourseIda’s Beginners’ Adult Ballet Course, Juulia’s Musical Dance Course, Pauliina’s Heels Intensive CourseAnna’s Salsa Ladies Style Project Intensive Course, Matias’ and Anna’s Couple Salsa Courses as well as Pinja’s Couple Bachata Courses.  All these courses have separate course fees and the same participants attend each week. You can sign up for these courses either by sending an email to info@flama.fi or by purchasing them at our webshop:

Matias, Anna, and Pinja continue their couple salsa and bachata courses also in the spring. Unlike other weekly classes at our studio, there are separate course fees for these courses and you sign up for the whole spring term. Before paying for the courses, please send us an email to info@flama.fi to check the number of places available and to tell whether you dance as a leader or a follower. We will reply to your message and confirm your registration. Here are all our couple dance courses for spring 2021 in a nutshell:

With our Spring 2021 Anytime Card  (550 €/450 € for students and seniors), you can dance during the whole season as much as you want!

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.

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!
