We were excited to see, in the Financial Times Lex column this week, a mention of Pineapple’s founder: “Another pioneer was Debbie Moore, founder of Pineapple Dane Studios. She sashayed on to its hallowed trading floor nine years later, the first woman to float a company on the stock exchange.”Read More

Pineapple Community ended the spring term 2018 with a bang!
In April, we received over 100 applications from schools across London. After a long decision process, we selected 20 schools to participate in our April—July roadshows.
During the May half-term period, we held an exclusive day of workshops at Pineapple Dance Studios, with talented choreographers teaching three different styles of dance.
Pineapple Community Youth Ambassadors had their final City Leader pitch during the April half term. Four of our ambassadors worked together over the past few months to plan and prepare their pitch to present to a panel of successful business managers.
In the April half term, Pineapple Community hosted an exciting dance workshop with the UK teams from the Dance World Cup. They had such a lovely time with our instructor Sia, and all flew off to Spain in June to compete at Dance World Cup – the largest dance competition in the world!
In addition, you can enjoy your own private dance class for you and nine friends at the world-famous Pineapple Dance Studios in London. Choose a song to learn a dance routine to, and top off the experience with an outfit of your choice from the Pineapple fashion range and a Pineapple dance bag for you to keep!
Young performers are invited to apply for a free place on the dance summer school.
You will be trained in hip-hop, commercial dance, and house and afrobeat, culminating in an exclusive performance at Pineapple Dance Studio.
