What comes out when you team up five crazy swing and afrolatin dance professionals, who have high-aiming dreams, quick feet and many worn-out dance shoes? Well, amazing ideas, creative craziness, laughter, sweat and tight teamwork, of course! And the end result is our new and unique Avec Dance Club.
We, the founders of Avec (Tuomas, Reetta, Matias, Omar & Johanna), met a long time ago on different dance floors and through teaching and performing at various events and camps. For a long time, each of us searched for the right place to call our dance home, so we could settle down and focus on our teaching and dancing. Similar situations, our mutual good vibes, humor, passion for dance and respect for each others work laid down the framework for our team, and so it was time to put Avec together!
We have each tried various dance styles, but partner dancing made its way into all of our hearts, and that is how we came up with the name of our school: At Avec, we practice and enjoy everything together! During the years, we have seen all sorts of dance places that have all given us ideas for the future. Now those ideas bear fruit, and we have had the opportunity to build just the kind of dance place we have always wanted to practice in ourselves!
For us, Avec is a place we would’ve wanted to have for our own dance journey already years ago. In fact, many ideas for Avec have risen exactly from our own wishes for training, imagining how we would have wanted and want to practice dancing and what kind of facilities make it possible.
At Avec, various dance scenes meet in good spirits. As dance enthusiasts we are amazed by the amount of dances we got to bring under the same roof, but just as well we want to offer the choice of concentrating on the specific dance(s) that make you feel all warm and fuzzy! With us, you can try out new dances and have fun with a relaxed attitude, knowing that you are in the hands of Finland’s top-of-the-line teachers! At Avec, we practice with intent but not too seriously.
Avec Dance Club is made for dancers, by dancers, with a big heart. We welcome you to join, and hope you enjoy your journey with us!
