The first event and performance space dedicated to dance in Finland is open! We bring the audience and dance together by showcasing the diversity of dance art and culture. We want to make dance available to as many people as possible, increase interest in dance culture and strengthen the position and appreciation of dance.

The program of Dance House Helsinki consists of performances and events organized by various Finnish and international dance and cultural operators.
