Couple and folk dance - Marjukka Koivuniemi and Petri Kauppinen
Choreographers

Marjukka Koivuniemi and Petri Kauppinen

Marjukka started dancing as a three-year-old in a ‘rhythm babies’ group, before moving into the world of competitive dance at five years old. For Marjukka, dancing is the air that she breathes: she works full-time as a dance teacher and running a dance school alongside her mother. Petri’s love of dance also developed early – at just four years old. Folk dance has been close to Petri’s heart for almost forty years! Petri works with dance in several different ways: as a dance teacher, choreographer, and dancer. According to Petri and Marjukka, the trick to couple and folk dancing is making sure that you are sharing the dance with the other person or people.
