A.Kivi Fundance

Tuesdays 14.15-15.00 (Aleksis Kivi Comprehensive School, Sturenkatu 2, Helsinki)

These classes are for 1-3 graders, and the aim is to learn broadly about the various aspects of dance. We improve our coordination and technique and most importantly we enjoy the dance and movement! The classes are based on show dance, but different dance styles are used to offer a versatile and fun experience for the kids. Besides dancing we also practice elements from acrobatics and gymnastics, such as splits and cart wheels. In addition we focus on improving creativity, social skills and in all make the most of the power of movement! Classes are taught in Finnish.

The classes are held in the school gym (Porvoonkatu 2, juhlasali).

This class is free of charge (sponsored by Walter Ry)

Spring season 2022 starts on 13th of January. Please note that there are no classes during winter break (week 8). The season lasts until the end of week 21.



Instructor: Gerli Ridal

“Dancing has been a part of my life since I can remember. Through the years the passion for dance has grown and dance has become a lifestyle to me. I have learned various styles and it is my goal to improve myself as a dancer and a teacher constantly. I love my job and I feel truly thankful that I can share my passion with kids on daily basis. As a dance instructor I am motivational, encouraging and with my positive energy through the classes, I will spread the love and passion for dance, because there is nothing more enjoyable! I find that teaching dance and sharing my knowledge is a great way to inspire people and enjoy the art of dance.”

This registration is valid until May 2022. The classes are sponsored by Walter Ry.
