Recent news from Flama!
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.
Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwestern Finland has published an order for the closure of sports facilities until the 15th of January, so we, unfortunately, have to postpone the start of Flama’s spring season as well as some of the workshops in January. The restrictions are valid at the moment until the 15th of January, so our spring season is supposed to start on Sunday, 16th of January 2022, and it will be extended until the 3rd of June 2022.
We will inform participants of all courses and workshops about these changes and replacement course dates by email. We have over 90 classes per week, so the information will not be available for everyone right away. Thank you for your patience.
Unfortunately, we also have to be prepared for the fact that the restrictions may be extended for a longer period, in which case we would have to postpone the start of the season even further. We will let you know as soon as we know for sure when we will be able to open our studio again. However, we truly hope that we can dance with you all again as soon as possible.
Here are the new dates for the workshops canceled in January:

Our spring 2022 schedule is now published! The spring schedule includes more than 90 different classes per week as well as workshops, dance parties and events on weekends!
We will dance in two locations: at Flama (Linnankatu 84) and at Pikku-Flama (Eerikinkatu 38).
Some of our weekly classes are courses with separate course registrations. You can register for these courses by purchasing them from our webshop. Those courses are marked with the sign * in the schedule. If you purchase Anytime for the whole spring, you can access the courses without separate course fees. Just register for the desired courses by e-mail: [email protected].
Most of our classes are still so-called drop-in classes that you can join whenever it works for you. The first drop-in classes for spring can be booked through our reservation system.
Due to the corona restrictions at the beginning of January, our studio’s spring season begins later. If there are no further restrictions, it will be on Saturday, the 29th of January. During the first week between the 31st and the 6th of February, we have Flama’s introductory week and all our drop-in classes cost only 7 €/class!
We have simply a wonderful dance spring, you are warmly welcome to dance with us at Flama!
We reserve the right for any class or teacher changes. The schedule might be updated later with some extra classes. There are no classes at Easter (April 15–18), on May Day (May 1) or on Mother’s Day (May 8).

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.”
Monday – Thursday
4 pm – 8.15 pm
4 pm – 6:15 pm
We are also open upon request and primarily between the dance classes.
2022: until January 28 only upon request, contact us by email: [email protected]
