Jazz Dance

Course with Emma Valtonen

In this course, Emma Valtonen teaches jazz dance basics. Choreographies to carefully selected songs will be on the curriculum, as the participants develop a feeling for the music and their individual expressions. Everyone is welcome! The classes are focussed on the fun in movement. Emma’s teaching approach is very people-oriented and open: “I want everyone to feel fine in my classes, not worrying about whether he or she might be ‘good enough’. In this way, participants excel and conquer their insecurities. That always makes me very proud.”
