The festival will take place in beautiful, close-to-nature surroundings at Kisakeskus sports institute. Kisakeskus is located a few kilometers outside of Raasepori (part of this is known as Karjaa until the end of 2008), a small town about 100 kilometers from Helsinki. It is easy and cheap to reach by train, bus or car.

We have dance spaces in two buildings. The big gym hall can be divided into three sections and has a nice wooden floor and wooden walls (see below).
These spaces are mainly for classes during the day.
The other studio is a bit smaller with a very nice mixture of wood and metal. This is the main jam space, but some classes and other activities also take place here.
Next to the jam space, there is room for “after ski”, evening snacks and so on.
Place to eat
The dining room (see below) is in the same building as the jam space. Food is served by the Kisakeskus catering personnel.
In the next picture, you see the jam space (first to left) and, one of the buildings that will be used for sleeping. All three buildings used for sleeping have rooms for 2-6 persons. So, around 20 people can stay in one building.
The building below can also take around 20 people and is located next to the two other sleeping buildings and the big gym hall. So, everything and everyone is located very close to each other.
The cabins are handed out first come first serve basis. If you don’t get one, don’t worry. We don’t have much time to hang out in cabins and rooms anyway. The cabins are located close (about 300 meters) to all the other buildings. They are on the top of a hill and most of them offer a beautiful view to the lake.
There will be a hot Finnish Sauna three evenings during the week. Sauna is next to the lake, which is probably on ice, but no worries, we have hole in the ice se you can go swimming anyway.
In addition, there is a skiing track around Kisakeskus (skis can be rented), forests for walking and and a small hill for sledding
