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. At the World Gymnaestrada in Amsterdam in August 2023 GFH was represented by dancers from our dance groups Ellis and Isadora, and by some gymnasts from our mixed group. Next event in which we will take part is the FSG-Festival in Hangö 14-16 June 2024. We will be rehearsing both for large group performanses and hall/city performances. In the autumn 2024, our mixed group Still Going Strong and dance group Isadora will participate in the Golden Age Gym Festival in Bulgaria 21-28 September.

Any questions you may have can be mailed to We will answer as soon as possible, but please do not get upset if you do not receive an immediate answer. Our club is administered by volunteers. Thus, it might take a couple of days before we have the possibility to answer your question.

You are welcome to join us. Registration for the spring term will open on 4 December. For groups and prices, please see Verksamhet.
