Dance House Helsinki is Finland's first landmark designed in terms of dance. Designed by JKMM Architects and ILO Architects in collaboration with the Cable Factory, the Dance House Helsinki combines old and new. The building comprises more than 5,400 square metres dedicated to dance and provides a world-class setting for the performance and experience of dance and circus.
Dance House Helsinki's programme partners produce diverse programmes that represent the most interesting artists in dance and circus. Dance House Helsinki creates and schedules its annual programme in cooperation with its programme partners.
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?
