Natasha Lommi

Dancer

Natasha Lommi began her career at Tamara Rasmussen Opisto dance college in Helsinki. She continued her studies at Danshögskolan in Stockholm, graduating in 2005, and then from the Theatre Academy in Helsinki in 2007. Lommi has worked with several famous Finnish choreographers, such as Tommi Kitti, Susanna Leinonen and Tero Saarinen. She is one of the founding members of TARGET Helsinki. Alongside her work as a dancer, she has choreographed for e.g. contemporary circus (Agit Cirk), popular music (Paula Vesala’s concerts) as well as dance films and installations. In addition, she has been teaching dance since 2000 and worked as a repetitor in several dance companies. Lommi has been a visiting dancer at Tero Saarinen Company since 2011.

``In terms of dance and expressiveness the Company’s three female soloists, Satu Halttunen, Auri Ahola and Natasha Lommi, already made the biggest impression on me in their separate solos, but especially in their powerful group scenes. They have the formal skills, but that does not stop their personalities coming through.”
