Welcome to StepUp School

Enjoy our positive and joyful atmosphere for dancing. We offer dance lessons for all ages – from babies to over 60-year-olds, from beginners to professionals. We focus on show and street dance styles and offer various classes for body maintenance.

In addition to dance, you can study musical theatre either in Skene Musical Theatre School programs or in open Skene classes for children.

We offer dance classes in two different locations; Sörnäinen (Helsinki) and Matinkylä (Espoo).

Classes can be paid with a single-ticket, serial tickets, seasonal ticket or with an Anytime card. You can also pay your own classes with Liikuntaseteli ”exercise voucher” or by other benefit vouchers, electronic cards, and/or electronic vouchers provided to you by your employer. We highly recommend trying your first dance class with a single ticket.

Spring season 2024 starts on Monday, January 8th and ends on Friday, May 24th (at Tapanila’s pop-up dance school classes will be held until Saturday, May 25th). Spring shows are on Saturday May 25th – Sunday May 26th. You can start also in the middle of the season. After the spring show rehearsals start, new choreographies will no longer be rehearsed.
