LISBETH HÄLIKKÄIFBB Figure Pro Competitor
Dance instructor, dancer, choreographer
Owner and manager of dance school Hip Hop House
I was launched into a career as a fitness professional after winning the Finnish Fitness championships in 2000. As a Figure Pro, I now compete abroad several times a year, mainly in the United States. My success in competition in the spring of 2003 in Hungary led to the fulfillment of a major goal: I was invited to compete in Figure Olympia in the fall of 2004.
Fitness is a way of life for me. As well as competing, I host fitness seminars, coach other competitors and judge. I am fascinated by the esthetic side of the sport, as well as the possibility of testing my limits. I love performing and I have a strong competitive drive. The versatile and demanding nature of Figure competitions constantly provide me with the challenges I crave.

Dance is my other great passion in life, as well as my profession. I began studying classical ballet in 1974. Since then, throughout my childhood and youth I studied different types of dance with several teachers. Various dance courses and study trips have also taken me abroad (London, Toronto, Paris, Los Angeles, New York).
I have been teaching dance for a living since 1988, focusing mainly on show dance and urban street dances. I also teach master classes at different events. In 1996 I founded my own dance school, Hip Hop House in Tampere, Finland and in 2004 expanded with another dance school, Salsa House. Our schools are among the best of their kind in Finland, and our most accomplished dancers compete at international level.
Throughout the course of my career, I have danced in several performing dance groups, including the Musical Theater of Tampere and Bolero. Currently I manage the professional show dance group Hot Gossip Dancers. I have choreographed and directed for television, several fashion shows, fitness competitions and performing artists.
During the years 1994-1996 I appeared on television in the Finnish version of American Gladiators under the alias Scorpio.
