All of our classes run on a drop-in basis so it is not possible to book in advance. We recommend that you arrive about 10 mins before the start of your class. This will give you enough time to either pay your membership fee or show your membership card at reception and make your way to the correct studio.
Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. It is important to keep in mind that in some genres of dance e.g ballet to wear clothes that allow the teacher to see the body so that correction to your form may be made.

Pineapple Studios was founded by former model Debbie Moore in 1979. She started attending dance lessons to alleviate weight gain caused by hypothyroidism. Following the closure of her local dance studio in Covent Garden, she failed to find a suitable alternative, so decided to open her own studio in the area. She launched the very first Pineapple logo street sweats, trackpants and t-shirts which were the start of her much acclaimed, global best-selling 'Pineapple' streetwear range.
As a company we are keeping a close eye on government advice regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). Following the latest government statement of Friday 20 March, 2020, the studio building is closed to customers. Timetable classes at Pineapple are now cancelled until further notice, and the studios are not available for private hire.
