Bringing the Dance to Life

Q&A with Maria Huhtinen

Kindness to me is a form of empathy. It means treating people with the same respect you’d like to be treated with, no matter the circumstances.

Treating people with kindness and giving them the benefit of a doubt takes a lot less energy and gives back a thousand times more than the alternative. The change starts in you, so lead by example.

Because this is such an important cause and close to my heart. There is true power in kindness and I love the way DFK and Life Vest Inside celebrates and reminds people of that.

By bringing people together to get inspired and to inspire others. There’s something magical in the combination of music and movement that creates a sense of belonging and happiness in most of us.

Maria has a masters degree in maths and physics from the University of Helsinki. Maria is a dog mom to a fluffy poodle called Skorpan.
