After all their months of hard work, our Sports Leaders have officially completed their course and placements!
The group had previously attended an intensive training workshop in October 2016.
A huge congratulations for all their hard work; they will all be receiving their awards!
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.
Pineapple Community joined forces with Kenrick Sandy MBE
We had an exclusive free workshop with choreographer Kenrick Sandy MBE on 4th March 2017.
The workshop was open to 14—25 year olds; young people from all over London attended this workshop. The young people were very energetic and loved learning from Boy Blue’s Kenrick.
Kenrick was a hit with our young people and we were honored to have such a special session with Kenrick.
Debbie Moore attended the Russian Ballet Icons Gala 2017 – In the steps of the BALLETS RUSSES.
Every year a dazzling programme pays tribute to the wonderful traditions of the Russian ballet school and its legendary soloists who have been inspiring dancers and ballet lovers since the early nineteenth century.
Debbie Moore dropped in to class to join Maggie Patterson for a 35 year reunion anniversary ballet class.
The special class took place on Valentine’s Day 2017 – appropriate, as the theme for the celebration was #BalletLove.
Piano accompaniment was by Shaun Holmes, a veteran and popular class pianist at Pineapple.
The special event was priced at the 1982 price of £1.00!
All proceeds & donations from the event went to Hope House Charity.
Students joined Maggie for celebratory Free drinks after the class.
