About the Artist

Riia Pulakka was born and raised in Nokia, Finland. After getting her BA in Dance and Early Childhood Education, she plans to teach children and dance her way somewhere in the world as she is figuring out what to do next. Riia’s choreography, “Elliptic Orbits,” is a continuation of her exploration of tunnels and circles that she started in Fall 2020 by choreographing a dance film, “To Tunnel Through,” which is an Idaho Screendance Festival 2020/2021 Official Selection.
