You can register without or with a partner to our partner dance courses. We use partner rotation in our classes, therefore you don’t a dance partner.
In partner dancing there’s usually a leader and a follower. Anyone can be a leader, anyone can be a follower.
Usually a leader initiates a movement and a follower completes it. These roles are in no way gender specific, in fact many people do both, and dancing both roles is often referred as switching.
You will be asked to chose to either lead or follow when you register to a partner dance course. Or you if you are fine with both roles you can choose ‘Both roles are okay’. Depending on the balance of leaders and followers, you might end up leading or following.
We encourage everyone to try both roles at some point, as it’ll greatly improve your dancing and broaden your understanding of leading and following.
The beginners courses (level 1) always start from scratch. You don’t need any previous dancing experience.
All of our courses can be found in myClub under the ‘Registration’ tab.
We let people without a partner from the queue in the registration order so that there are about equal number of followers and leaders (±2). Therefore the myClub might show that the course is full, but is not until [TÄYNNÄ] is added to the course name.
You will get a notification and a bill, when you get a spot in the course.

Courses are currently operating normally without restrictions. Currently we do not require a covid-19 certificate in our courses and events. We are constantly monitoring the situation and the decisions of the authorities. If the situation worsens, we will implement the required measures, i.e. informing about hygiene, restricting dance partners to a single partner or rotation within a small group, and possible breaks between classes. The covid-19 certificate will be introduced if the city of Helsinki requires it. Classes may have to be canceled if the situation worsens significantly and restrictions given by the authorities come into force. The club does not have the possibility to pay back course fees, especially if half of the course has already been taken when a possible closure occurs.
