FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Debbie Moore founded the internationally renowned Pineapple Dance Studios in the location of an old pineapple warehouse in Covent Garden, central London, in 1979.
The philosophy behind the creation of Pineapple Dance Studios was to break down the elitist barriers surrounding dance, and make it available to everyone, from the absolute beginner to the advanced and professional dancer.
Pineapple offers more classes and a wider variety of dance styles than any other studio in Europe. There are nearly 40 different varieties to choose from, ranging from classical ballet to street jazz, hip hop to salsa, Egyptian dance to Bollywood grooves plus many more. We teach over 250 classes a week to over 3,500 members, at all levels and to all ages (from dancers who are 4 years of age to those in their 80s). Many of the teachers at Pineapple offer private dance lessons for those who prefer one-to-one tuition, either as a taster lesson, with a group of friends, or for longer periods.
As one of the world's premiere dance centres, the studios are frequently hired by pop artists and West End performers for rehearsal.
But we’re not just here for dance. Pineapple also offers various therapies, including sports massage, acupuncture, and osteopathy. And there’s our Pineapple Shop across the road from the studio in Covent Garden.
All of our classes at Pineapple are open, so you don’t need to book. You can just drop in and take a class.
