GFH in English

Gymnastikföreningen i Helsingfors is a gymnastics club with focus on keep-fit gymnastics in good company, fun gymnastics for children, and show dance and dance groups for all, from children to adults.

Our mission is to offer various forms of gymnastics and dance in Swedish in Helsinki. Our groups have classes at school gyms leased by the city of Helsinki. Please see under Verksamhet.

Since the start in 1876, GFH has had groups that actively participate in gymnastics festivals. After the Covid-19 pandemic, GFH has again taken part in gymnastics festivals. In October 2022, GFH’s dance group Isadora och mixed group Still Going Strong participated in the Golden Age Gym Festival in Madeira. The following gymnastics event that will see GFH members participating will be the World Gymnaestrada in Amsterdam in August 2023. Dancers from our dance groups Ellis and Isadora and a some from the mixed group are rehearsing programmes for both large group performances and hall performances.
