Mission Statement

Founding a company is our way of sharing our love, experience and passion for dance with others. Dance has been with us all our lives and has had an impact on who we are and how we live. With Kiihko Dance we can make people move, be it physically or emotionally through performing, choreographing and teaching. We want to bring a little bit of dance to everybody's life.
