Teach kids to dance, have trainings with adults! Dance studio Triiniks is looking for You to volunteer

Dance Studio

Triiniks was founded in 1995. It was an idea in making for a group of friends to come along and have some fun while doing what they loved most, dancing. To begin with, it was a small venture of 8 girls and Ingrid Hamer as a coach and the founder of the club.
Triiniks expanded rapidly and children from different age groups were joining in. Studio has grown to about 100 kids and their sessions are divided according to their ages. The ages span from preschoolers to adults. There is also an advanced group in different ages who train together 4 times a week.
Studio’s main focus is dance. Members are passionate about it. Coaches are expected to develop choreographies according to abilities. The greatest thing about dancing is that it’s without limits. So the ideas and fantasies are free to flow to create magic.
“As for ourselves, our life and relationship gets better and stronger every year so we are definitely big believers in the benefits of dance. We have made it our goal to pass this on to as many people as possible." Triiniks coaches
Triiniks has taken some new and fun filled challanges. Studio’s connection with Ollerup Gymnastikhoyskolen in Denmark has helped to develop basic gymnastics and tumbling. Over time the studio has got better equipment and kids have improved their skills. These classes freshen up the dance routines and participants have the opportunity to work with their attainments. Tumbling has been part of our regular training sessions over 10 years.
In 2007 Triiniks got new facilities in Nõo Sports Centre. It filled the atmosphere with new thoughts and created wonderful possibilities. In 2007 the studio started coaching pre-school kids. The 3 to 4 years and the 5 to 6 years of age sessions are enjoyable and enable children to develop balance, coordination, motor skills, social and educational skills. For a child it appears to be more of a playground with some gymnastics and dancing elements.
At the beginning of 2008 Triiniks started to welcome volunteers from different countries. We have hosted coaches from Brazil, Denmark, Uruguay and New Zealand. For many years Triiniks has taken part in different dance competitions, shows, festivals and also given a lot of concerts. Common enterprise has brought the dancers and their coaches more close to each other and made Triiniks as one big happy family.

I have been in love with dance since I was a little girl. Because of that, also because of one choreography talking about Ladybird and happy kids the Dance Studio Triiniks was founded.
I have graduated University of Tartu BCc in Exercise and Sports Sciences. I have studied under different coaches and dance teachers in Estonia and abroad.
Beside Triiniks I have been working with Folkdance Ensamble Tarbatu, in fitness studio My Fitness and some places outside of Estonia.

Triiniksis olen käinud alates ajast, mil alustasin oma kooliteed. Triiniksil on minu elus suur roll, saan tegeleda igapäevaselt sellega, mida mulle meeldib kõige rohkem teha- tantsida ja lastega tegeleda. Mudilastega tegelen igapäevaselt, sellest on saanud minu põhitöö. Lisaks on mind nakatanud ka aeroobikapisik ja hetkel avastan enda jaoks erinevaid stiile ning naudin kogu protsessi. Mulle meeldib minu töö ja ma teen seda kogu südamest.

My passion for dance started when I was a little girl. As I started at school I found dance group 'Triiniks' as my second family. Most influential of my studies was a year spent in Ollerup Sports Gymnastikhoyskolen, where I learnt dance, acrobatics and tumbling. I do enjoy variety of trainings inluding group sessions. As far as dancing and life goes you can't just learn it, you have to love it!

I´m studing at Tartu Universitu to be coach and teacher of physical education. Dance has been my passion since I was a kid. At school I was dancing and doing gymnastics. I like to experiment new things and test myself and others. I stepped in aerobics world 2 years ago and I have no intention to give up dancing or aerobics any time soon.

I am a PE and folk dance teacher with a Bachelor degree in Sport Education. Dance is my passion, I have danced most of my life with 25 years of this dedicated to folk-dancing. Over the years I have taken a step back from performing myself and I spend my time behind the scenes: as a coach/instructor. I love my job and can't really imagine doing anything else.
