Wednesdays 17:30-18:30 in Cultural Centre Sähinä, 3rd floor (Heikkiläntie 10, Lauttasaari)

Afrobeat is a delightful combo of several African dance styles, all mashed up in one awesome dance class! Something old, something new, something borrowed… and nobody will feel blue, because this class will serve as your weekly energy boost! You will be sweating, using some muscles you never even knew you had – and most importantly – you’ll be smiling like crazy for the rest of the week! The classes are open level, and are suitable for everyone from 16 years up, regardless of previous dance experience.

Autumn season 2021 starts on 8th of September and lasts until the end of week 50. Please notice that there are no classes on autumn break (week 42).
