Latchford Primary School Visit To Pineapple

Latchford Primary School Visit To Pineapple

Students from Latchford Primary School, based in Warrington, Cheshire visited Pineapple and took part in a two-hour dance workshop on 27th of April.

The students attended an afrobeat class, a dance style they had not tried before, and they absolutely loved it! We also spent time on their favourite dance style, street dance!

The workshop ended on a high note as the students impressed us with their freestyles, and they even had their Head Teacher take part!

We look forward to seeing them all again at Pineapple!

Pineapple Community, London Youth and The Movement Factory partnered up for another dance residential.

The weekend of events was held at London Youth’s Woodrow High House for young people aged 14-18 years old.

On 10th–12th March over 50 young people and youth workers came together from different parts of London to participate in a special dance weekend based on well-being, dance, movement, fun and fitness.

The young people worked extremely hard over the course of the weekend. Each day started at 7.30am with yoga, meditation & stretching classes with four hours of different dance styles and three hours of fitness classes. The youngsters also had an opportunity to pitch a project to win funding from London Youth.

The weekend ended with an open discussion led by the instructors, who shared their individual journeys. This inspirational discussion focussed on staying motivated, and motivated the young people to follow their aims and ambitions.

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!
