Turun Kansantanssin Ystävät ry

The skill of dance and the joy of rhythm

Turun Kansantanssin Ystävät ry was established in 1970. Our goal was and is to enable children to join in the dance groups and to raise them to value folk dance and other Finnish traditions. The goal has been reached tremendously well as today there are nearly 15 dance groups of which more than half are groups of children and young people.

Nowadays Turun Kansantanssin Ystävät ry is an active association both in Finland and abroad. Our groups visit Folk dance festivals all over the world and foreign groups visit Turku during ”Tanssiva Turku” -festival, which we have organized every third year since 1991 .
