Advancing traditions

 

For nearly four decades, Rimpparemmi's dance school has provided thousands of children with high quality Finnish folk dance education. At the moment, the dance school has approximately 80 students aged between 3 to 18 that train weekly. The students are segregated into 4 different age groups, which all include both boys and girls. The groups perform on demand in different events and festivals in Finland as well as abroad.

 

Rimpparemmi's dance school also offers young musicians a chance to learn folk music in a junior band.
