Beginners’ solo salsa class takes you to the world of salsa rhythms. During the class, you will get familiar with the basic steps of salsa and we will learn about technique, body movements and rhythmics. This class is suitable for anyone!


Bachata is a sensual Latin dance that comes originally from the Dominican Republic. During the class, we will concentrate on footwork, technique of hand and arm lines as well as body movements and rhythmics.

Cha cha chá, tutummin cha-cha, on vauhdikas ja mukaansatempaava latinalaistanssi. Tunnilla käydään läpi cha-chan rytmiä sekä perusaskeleita eri variaatioineen.

The workshops are instructed by the founder of Flama, Anna Tolppa. Anna fell in love with dancing early. She started with classical ballet at the age of five and continued her dance studies also with jazz and show dance in her childhood and adolescence.

Since 2010, she has concentrated on Latin dance. She trained to become a salsa instructor under the direction of a Cuban dance teacher, Ramón Silverio. Before opening her own dance studio, Anna has taught dance classes for example in Dance School Salsa de Cuba, CampusSport, ANNAsport, Naantali Adult Education Center, HaNi-Halli and various events. She graduated from the Humak University of Applied Sciences as Bachelor of Culture and Arts (Cultural Management) and from the University of Turku as Bachelor of Arts.
