Traditional Finnish folk dances
In the eyes of foreigners Finnish folk dances may look quite peculiar, and they certainly differ considerably from the dances of other European nations, including neighbouring countries. Still, Finnish folk dances are mostly variations of old court and ballroom dances once fashionable all over Europe; only in this remote corner of the continent they have been better preserved than elsewhere.

Most of the Finnish folk dances we know were collected at the turn of the century and consequently represent the dance heritage of the 19th century. Fortunately folk traditions do not easily discard the past, and many older elements and indeed whole dances have been kept alive to this day.

The oldest known dance tradition in Finland goes back to medieval times, when "caroles" grew popular in France and were soon danced among all classes of society throughout Europe, even in far-away Finland. Caroles were simple chain dances in which a linked line of dancers moved forwards, walking, running or skipping to their own singing.

The "polska" originated in Poland and came to Finland by way of Sweden in the 17th century. It soon grew immensely popular and according to old records even surpassed the minuet in popularity during the 18th century. One has to keep in mind, however, that "polska" was a general name for many different dance variations and was indeed often used as a synonym for "dance".

At the end of the 17th century the French adopted English country dances, calling them "contra dances". New dances were quickly created after the original models and soon spread to other countries. The steps were much simpler than in the minuet, and contra dances immediately gained great popularity among ordinary people.

"Purpuri" (potpourri) is the name given to long ceremonial dances which probably originated in a series of small dances. When the programme at balls became standardized, i.e. the dances were always performed in the same order, these were in the end taken for one dance.

The Bohemian "polka" came to Finland twenty years later and immediately grew extremely popular, it replaced older steps in many earlier set dances, and hordes of small new polka variations were born. As most of the collecting of Finnish folk dances coincided with this period, a quarter of Finnish folk dances contain polka steps.

Featured Finnish Dance Company
Canela Dance Company
Our independent ensemble Canela produces and performs dance creations ranging from traditional and modern flamenco to contemporary dance. Canela was established in 2001 in Helsinki, but its members are active in the dance scene in different parts of Finland.
The aim of the dance ensemble Canela is to promote flamenco as a form of artistic dance and to integrate dancing with other artistic media. Canela is a Finnish initiative to produce and perform originally Spanish flamenco, and it thereby establishes that dancing can be such global folklore that cannot be defined from the sole point of view of a single nation.
In addition to the independent works of its individual dancers, Canela has a focus on producing commissioned works. The first one is a series created in association with the most interesting choreographers, perhaps some of the non-mainstream ones, in Spain.
