The Dance Pavilions are an important part of Finnish social culture. However, on the dance floor certain rules apply and there are a number of basic skills that are good to master in order to have a joyful and fulfilling evening.
In Kartano Kievari you can have a personally guided Dance Pavilion experience. We will take you through the brief history of social
dancing as well as the social rules on the dance floor. The owners of Kartano Kievari, Riitta and Lare Pitkänen, are also Award winning -Social dancing instructors, so you will be personally guided to basic dance technique and the most common dance step, Foxtrot. The private lesson is taught in Finnish, with English commands. Movement is a language in itself and knows no verbal boundaries. In the beginning of the Dance Pavilion evening you will also have your own personal host to get you started. Immerse yourself in music and let the rhythm take you!
