The association, which was established on 9 June 2010, aims to advance the selection of high-level dance culture regionally, nationally, and internationally. These targets are supported by the Dance House project. The project wants to make Dance House Helsinki an internationally unique entity which involves broadly all forms of dance culture. It will offer audiences an open and approachable meeting point. At the same time, other performing arts will also gain these requirements. Dance House Helsinki is as a solution to the problem of insufficient practice and performance spaces in capital area, which has lasted for decades.
