Karoliina Hirvonen

Karoliina started dancing when she was 8 years old, and her repertoire includes also ballet, jazz and contemporary dance. She has been dancing Irish for almost 15 years. Karoliina’s teachers have been Piia-Maria Aho and Tereza Bernardová (TCRG).

Karoliina has a lot of experience competing and performing in all her dance forms. She has travelled all over Europe competing with great success and has gathered valuable experience from major competitions as well, such as All Scotlands and Mainland Europe Championships. She also has the title of Mainland Europe Intermediate Trophy Champion 2017.

Karoliina’s competitive level is Open Championship in Senior Ladies O23 and is representing inSpiral Dance Company Finland (CLRG). She also takes her Grade Exams regularly (9 out of 12 completed). She has also participated RCCEA’s Professional Development Seminar in May 2019 in Prague and Riverdance Online Summer School in July 2020.

Karoliina would do basically anything for this art form, Irish dance is truly important to her. She has a lot of personal goals but the greatest are to qualify for the World Irish Dancing Championships and get her TCRG (CLRG’s teacher’s certification).
As a teacher Karoliina is very strict about technique and rhythm but is still encouraging all her students to try and try a little bit more again.
