Description The primary aim of Tero Saarinen Company, founded by dancer-choreographer Tero Saarinen in 1996, is to use the language of dance to investigate, promote and communicate a humane worldview and basic human values.

Tero Saarinen Company is one of Finland’s leading cultural exports; the group has appeared in over 30 countries and its core activities include running an international teaching programme and licensing Saarinen’s choreographies to other prominent dance groups.

The Company provides work for about 80 individuals each year, eight of whom have permanent posts. The group is in permanent residence at Helsinki’s Alexander Theatre.
