Omat Polut event 2016

Hello friends and listeners of RQL !
This sunday there will be the Omat Polut event organized by Loviisan Tanssiopisto. We had the great pleasure to interview Kati Kivilahti-Fagerudd and a few of the girls joining the event.

- Hello Kati, would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners\readers ?
I’m Kati Kivilahti-Fagerudd, the principal and dancepedagog in Loviisan Tanssiopisto.I have been living in Loviisa with my family since 2006.

- Would you like to tell us something about the Loviisan Tanssiopisto ?
In 2007 Päivi Ahvonen, Sonja Orden and me, founded an association called Loviisanseudun Tanssiopiston ja Sirkuskoulun kannatusyhdistys ry, which is the official backbone of our organisation. The board of the association includes nowadays Essi Niemelä, Jenni Martinsuo, Päivi Ahvonen and me. We have had the art educational status called Tanssin taiteen perusopetuksen yleinen oppimäärä since 2012 and we have annually 200-300 students taking part of our activities, mostly kids and teens. Next semester Loviisan Tanssiopisto celebrates its 10th Anniversary.

- Next sunday there will be the Omat Polut, which is the idea behind this event ?
On the 17th of April at 13 o'clock at the dance studio in Meijeri, we are organising OMAT POLUT matiné with new choreographies from our students. The idea of the project is to encourage our students to build choreographies on their own. In my point of view, this is very important.The projects can give a lot to the participants: to be creative, to make decisions, to research, to share - to enjoy the feeling of completing a dance on their own. As dance teachers we are supporting the groups during the process through discussions and guidance, but at the same time we try  to keep some distance,  not being involved too much but always  there if needed.

- For how many years the Omat Polut took place ?
 Omat Polut is an annual project, this year will be the 5th or 6th time it takes place.

- Who are the teachers tutoring for the event this year ? Would you like to introduce   them ?
The dance teachers who have been tutoring this year are Susanna Karvinen, Beniamino Borghi and me. Susanna has been working at Loviisan Tanssiopisto for two years as street dance, show dance and contemporary dance teacher. Beniamino  has been working in our school for many years and he works as a teacher in contemporary dance and contemporary ballet.

-Would you like to tell something else to our listeners\readers ?
I warmly welcome everybody to join us at Meijeri next Sunday to enjoy and share the talent  of these young dancers!
And then of course I want to welcome everybody to our big springshow

F.- I have taken part of the Omat Polut project once many years ago, this is my first proper time attending it.

-What do you like of this project ?

E.-That everybody can built their own coreography, but at the same time you are not completly alone because there are the tutors that are guiding you.

J.- I think that is fantastic that the studends can make their own coreographies, and that they can express them self through the coreography. And is also a good way to improve yourself.

F.- I love this project !! It encourages us to use dance in more creative ways and insted of just repeating the teachers, we are able to make completly our own stuff.

-Why did you wanted to take part of the Omat Polut project ?

E. J.- At the begining we weren't sure if taking part of this project, then once we were messing around with Fanni and we started to build a coreography just for fun, then we thougth why don't show it in a proper way during the Omat Polut ? That's why we took part of this project.

F.- I wanted to take part to the Omat Polut, because we just randomly started to make a dance. We thought that it would be really fun to show to the others in a proper showcase and Omat Polut was a great platform for that. I also thought that this would be a wonderful project where I could explore my skills not only as a dancer but as a coreographer, and to do it with my friends just doubled the fun.
