Pia Rauhalinna started dancing at the age of four, later studying at the Helsinki Dance Academy where her focus was ballet, contemporary, street dance and jazz.
She was first introduced to Latin social dances in 2002 and that has now become her main passion. Pia studied at Dance School Baila Baila, with Miguel Verdecia and Soila Sarria, and has since performed in live events and on Finnish TV, and has toured for Havana Club “Loco” promotions.
Pia has toured theatres in Finland and London (performing with Seraphim Dance) and has taught various workshops at venues including the Barbican Centre. She has also appeared in music videos and choreographed for fashion shows, independent projects and live shows.
“I like to use methods and techniques from other dance styles to enhance and influence my individual style.”
