Shooting Stars Academy visit to Pineapple Dance Studio

Shooting Stars academy at Pineapple

We were excited to welcome young students from Shooting Stars Academy in December 2016.

The students travelled from their home in Warrington, Cheshire to take part in a special masterclass with two Pineapple Community instructors.

Over four hours of class at the studio the young dancers learned urban dance styles, which they enjoyed a great deal.

It was an exciting day for the students and for us – their energy and enthusiasm was uplifting, and there was a lot of laughter.

We look forward to seeing them again!

On the 29th October 2016, we took a trip to Glasgow alongside Nike dance athlete Kymberlee Jay.

Our goal was to deliver a special hip hop masterclass for a dance school in Glasgow.

Our students enjoyed the masterclass especially as it was a style they had never tried.

An annual competition also took place, and Pineapple Community reps were invited to join the judging panel.

It was a lively day and we thoroughly enjoyed working with so many talented young dancers!
