DANCE HOUSE HELSINKI – STEP BY STEP

Unknown photographer / Theatre Museum's archive

A space devoted to dance is a dream that has dwelt in the hearts of dancers for decades. The thought was first voiced in the 1930s. The relentless work and joint effort of different operators and an extensive group of active participants made the birth of Dance House Helsinki possible. How did it all start, and what turns of events have occurred along the road? How did dance finally acquire its own place in Ruoholahti, Helsinki?
