Adult Ballet:
During the adult ballet class, we go through classical ballet technique, practise ballet-specific expression and some choreographic phrases towards the end of the class. The classe cover barre exercises, centre practice and free routines. Ballet develops internal abdominal muscles and improves balance, coordination and posture. In addition, the expressive ability of the body will gain new dimensions. The adult ballet class creates a common space in which we can, at a gentle pace, combine practice and fun. Relaxed, cheerful and bright dancing, but still keeping the main focus.

Barre class is a hybrid workout class – combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training. Barre workouts are intensely focused on improving core strength, developing the stabilizing muscles of the shoulder and hip girdles, and enhancing flexibility.

You don’t need any dance experience for this class.

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, 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.
