The Guild of Architecture’s very own dance group was founded in 2013. The dancers have various dancing backgrounds as well as their majoring of studies. #swagswagnamnam has weekly training sessions and the dance group performs at different events hosted by guilds, architecture companies, Aalto University and even large-scale galas. The practices are open to everyone at the Guild and anyone can join it for dancing, teaching or choreographing!
This Helsinki based a cappella ensemble has six great vocals. For several years this assembly has interpreted music in a fresh, sensitive and relaxed way. ET gets inspiration especially from domestic languages, young composers and from the Christmas time of the year.
