Minna Tervamäki

Contemporary Ballet, Youth, Minnan Metodit 

Minna Tervamäki on Suomen Kansallisbaletin tähtitanssija. Hän on esiintynyt kolmatta vuosikymmentä kestäneen uransa aikana lähes kaikissa arvostetuimmissa klassisen baletin päärooleissa sekä merkittävien nykykoreografien teoksissa. Tervamäki on esiintynyt erilaisissa gaaloissa niin kotimaassa kuin ulkomaillakin. Jäätyään eläkkeelle Kansallisbaletista keväällä 2012 Tervamäen toiminta on painottunut yhä enenevissä määrin poikkitaiteelliseen yhteistyöhön.

Tervamäki debytoi koreografina teoksella Something Else? vuonna 2005. Tervamäki tekee yhteistyötä myös monien muiden tunnettujen artistien kanssa, kuten viulisti Pekka Kuusiston, pianisti Heini kärkkäisen, flamencotanssija ja -koreografi Kaari Martinin, harmonikkataiteilija Kimmo Pohjosen, multimediataiteilija Marita Liulian kanssa ja taiteilija Hannaleena Heiskan kanssa.

Tervamäki on saanut arvostetun Philip Morris Dance Flower Award -palkinnon vuonna 1997, Edvard Fazer -palkinnon vuonna 2000, Libris Award -palkinnon vuonna 2006 ja Imatran Balettigaalan tunnustuspalkinnon vuonna 2009. Syksyllä 2011 hänelle myönnettiin Suomen Leijonan ritarikunnan ensimmäisen luokan ritarimerkki. Lokakuussa 2011 Minna Tervamäelle myönnettiin Muusikkojen liiton tunnustuspalkinto.

Taiteellisen työskentelyn lisäksi hän opettaa muun muassa tanssia, rentoutumistaitoja ja Minnan metodeita, sekä luennoi yrityksissä.

Joulukuussa 2013 ilmestyi Minna Tervamäen ensimmäinen kirja, Minnan metodit.

Minnan metodit on kirja kaikille henkisestä ja fyysisestä hyvinvoinnista kiinnostuneille. Kirja esittelee Minnan oman työkalupakin, jonka avulla hän on noussut huipulle tanssijana, palannut estradeille loukkaantumisten jälkeen, löytänyt uutta energiaa ja voimavaroja kovasta harjoittelusta huolimatta ja säilyttänyt lapsenomaisen innon oppia aina vaan uusia asioita.
