- FLOW MO DANCE SCHOOL
Saiffa is a street dance center in the heart of Helsinki. Saiffa is founded by members of the internationally successful dance group Flow Mo. Saiffa has established its position as a pioneer in the Finnish street dance culture. Saiffa is also the first internationally recognized Finnish street dance school. For years, the classes and events we have organized have attracted street dancers from all over the world to visit the school and Finland.
With our example we want to inspire especially children and young people to participate in street dance. Our main mission is to offer dance lessons for all ages interested in dancing. In addition, we want to raise the level of dance education in Finland and increase the general knowledge about street dance. We also want to promote the local street dance culture and to improve the appreciation of street dance and to raise the recognition of Finnish street dance worldwide. Saiffa has been hosting monthly dance school jams as well dance courses that are open for everybody. By doing this we want to offer especially young people a positive and inspiring dance environment. In addition, the activities of the dance school are guided by the values of our company.
Saiffa’s open and stylish 259 square meter premises are situated in central Helsinki. Saiffa has two spacious studios equipped with top sound systems and dance floor. Saiffa’s heart, Saiffa Lounge, functions as warm-up and “hang out” space. In the Lounge you can also find Saiffa’s store. Saiffa encourages warming up and jamming in the Lounge before the dance class. This way we can get straight to the point in the actual class. Saiffa also has dressing rooms and toilet facilities available for its customers.
