This year's students began working on their high school diplomas in dance and final projects in the advanced course in dance (basic education in art).

Here we go!

We are celebrating the National Hobby Week from 6 to 12 September 2021. Come and get acquainted with the basic education of circus art and dance. You can still inquire about free places and try different sports. We have a nice group of enthusiasts of different ages.

You can also get acquainted with the basic circus and dance lessons organized by Hurja Piruetti at the Finnish Modeling Hobby classes held in Raseborg schools.

Hurja Piruetti’s art education project is blooming in Raseborg in May! Due to the pandemic, the traditional spring festival at the local theatre had to be cancelled the second year in a row, and the yearning back to the stage is strong for all those working with performance. This spring we will be blooming all around Raseborg as projects and happenings flow out of the studios and come to light.

Hurja Piruetti’s spring festival “Florere Florere” takes place from 10th May - 23rd May 2021. This year, the festival takes on a new form: Hurja Piruetti’s dancers of all ages will realise, produce, perform and immerse themselves in dance and circus projects of various kinds, which will be - and already have been - seen and heard all around Raseborg. During the upcoming two weeks, watch creativity bloom as groups perform finalised pieces, extracts of projects, and demos of ongoing processes on our website and social media channels. Join us in enjoying the blossoming - let a thousand flowers bloom!

Course: CREATE - a project

Age group: 13+, advanced

Course content: 60h Basic Education in Arts study credits (TPO opinnot)

This project is led by dance artist and MA in Dance Pedagogy student Reettaleena Rauhala. The project explores creating movement in the moment as improvisation/freestyle, and as predetermined choreography. The idea is that the group together with the facilitator works toward creating an art work of some kind (the format may range from a dance performance to a photography exhibition – only imagination is the limit!). The first demo of the work will take place in December, and the second in April.

The project happens in a workshop format, spread over 14 meetings on Fridays and Saturdays during the season 2021/2022 (Note: rehearsals once or twice a month, see detailed schedule below). The project accrues 60h Basic Education in Arts study credits (TPO opinnot).


Aim of the project is to provide and help discover tools for creating movement, thus tapping into own creative energy. Via this exploration, the participants may continue finding and redefining their own movement language, and gain confidence in their capabilities, skills and vision. The project also makes space for collective art making, giving an opportunity to rehearse group work, collective decision making, and interaction in general.
