The event on Facebook.


Camille Fumanal-ulysse & Julian Lange

These amazing dancers have taught in Turku twice, so they have a strong relationship with Turku, Finns and even ice swimming!
Julian is 194 cm tall. Camille is 150 cm. He comes from contemporary dancing, she’s from rock’n’roll and salsa, spiced up with some hip hop and jazz. He’s charismatic. She’s elegant.

Together they teach and dance with the same passion. They are a great example of the diversity you can find in west coast swing. Inspired by their different universes, they will help you to find your own way in west coast swing, with a twist of technique and a lot of fun.

Said about Camille and Julian: “They are wonderful! ❤ ❤ Classes made me love this dance even more!”

Jennina Färm & Ola Länsman

Jennina is a dance teacher, a choreographer and a dancer. You can usually see her competing in the advanced division, but she also loves to social dance untill sunrise. Jennina is known for her analytical and passionate touch in dancing.

Ola has long been dancing in our dance parties in Turku, but finally he’s here to teach! Ola competes in the intermediate division and teaches west coast swing in Helsinki. Ola is known for being a fun person who has amazing social dancing skills.

Together Jennina and Ola have taught west coast swing and have also participated in The Open Rising Star division with their routine. When teaching together their different personalities complete each other.


Social Dance Group – You know the basics and maybe some variations so well that you do them in social dancing. You have danced from half a year to two years, maybe even longer but not so regularly. Your main goal is to be better on the social dance floor.

Competition Group – You have danced more than two years and you’re seeking for more demanding technique and variations to use in your musicality. You have no problem dancing to really slow or fast music. You just enjoy challenging songs. You have travelled to other cities’ dance events or even abroad. You have competed in WSDC events.

There is going to be an audition on Saturday morning for the competition group. If you wish to participate in the competition group, but don’t have one or more novice WSDC points, you can come to the audition (only if you participate in the event for the whole weekend).
Note! If you get new points after you have registered, tell about it to the event director.
