Jaana Heino Posted April 14, 2005 Report Share Posted April 14, 2005 Information of the Finnish Dance Camp for Adults is now available here, but in Finnish. I translate: Dance Camp For Adults and Teens in Sammatti, 29st July to 6th August, 2005 The popular dance camp for adults and teens will be organized for the sixth time. The location is again the beautiful Sammatti, 75 km west from Helsinki. Housing and meals are offered at the Lönnrot school, and classes are held at the Sammatti youth society building. The camp starts with a welcoming and introducions on Friday evening 29th July, and classes start Saturday morning. As teachers we have the French professor of dance Eric Viudes (classical ballet and repertoire) and a student of dance pedagogy from Oulu, Sirpa Laakso (character dance and stretching). Course fee 350 EUR includes 5-6 hours of tuition per day (one afternoon free), accomodation in two-person rooms in apartments (which also include a small kitchen and refridgerator), and three meals a day (breakfast, light lunch, and dinner). The camp will have an end performance a the Sammatti youth society building, in which (in addition to participants) also dancers from the pre-professional classes of Helsingin tanssiopisto and from the National Ballet will perform. The course is aimed for students who have studied classical ballet at least 4 years (levels intermediate 2 and up). If there is enough demand, another group for those who have studid at least 2 years (intermediate 1 and up) can be arranged. ... Registration before 23rd May. We can take 20 students, and places will be given in order of registration. For more information, please contact Anita Remitz, phone +358-50-336 2208. I suppose you could also email to the office, at email@example.com, which place you should also email to register, if you don't understand enough Finnish to fill the net registration form. The "youth society building" sounds grand, but is in fact an old wooden house, and there are no mirrors (barres and suitable floor cover is brought in, though). The food at the site is good. I assume the French teacher will teach in English (most Finns would not understand enough French and I don't think he speaks enough Finnish). I have no idea what he is like, he is new to the school, but he's got the credentials. I am not going this year, but I think Päivi (psavola of this board) is, and we've both been before, so feel free to ask questions. Quote Link to comment
