Instructors: Julia Nurmio and Henna Räsänen

Julia: “I started dancing at a young age and I’ve gained experience in different areas of dance throughout the years. I’ve studied dance and dance pedagogics in Juste Debout (Paris) and in Stockholm University of Arts among other places. I work mainly with contemporary and street styles as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher.  As a teacher I’m demanding and motivating, while paying attention to the individuals and challenging them to grow. My classes have positive and active vibe, and I focus on creating a good and motivating team spirit and environment. Throughout the years I’ve taught teams from beginners to advanced and from kids to adults. My strength as a teacher is the understanding of body and movement developed through my broad experience in different dance styles.

Henna: “Hi! My name is Henna. I am a dancer and mover. I work mainly with contemporary and street styles as a teacher, dancer, and choreographer, also as a yoga instructor. As a teacher I want to create versatile and fun exercises to help my students develop and use their body in various ways. In the classes I encourage my students to practice hard, without forgetting the good mood that dance creates. At the moment I am into researching floor techniques, and human interaction in dance as well as combining different art forms together.”
