Dance workshop

Be prepared for the New Year’s ball! Now you have the opportunity to learn popular Finnish social dances, the jenkka and the Finnish tango.

Ballroom tango might be the most magnificent form of tango. The Argentinian tango might be the most passionate, but the Finnish tango… is probably the most romantic. ❤

After this workshop you will also know why “love handles” are called “jenkka handles” (jenkkakahvat) in Finnish!

Time: Monday December 31st at 13:00 – 14:00

Place: Balanssi Studiot, Kaapelitehdas: Tallberginkatu 1 D, 4th floor
