Sheila Sangster

Sheila Sangster has been teaching in London since 1983 and here at Pineapple since 1990.

Her training began at the age off 22, in Canada, where she did a foundation course in Classical and Contemporary ballet. She then came to London and continued her dance training in Jazz: Luigi and Matt Mattox styles, Contemporary: Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham, and Pilates technique. She then trained to teach with the I.S.T.D.

Sheila taught as part of the three-year Musical Theatre course for many years at the Guildford School of Acting and also covered classes at Mountview and Central School for Speech and Drama.

She also taught at Dance Works in London where she joined Anna Du Boisson's West London School of Dance faculty, teaching children from 8 years upwards.

She now focuses all her energy on her classes at Pineapple.


Duration: 1 hour.  Open to all levels and the aim is to get students strong and flexible with a safe and easy-to-follow warm-up, The dance routine changes weekly. Some weeks it's fast and fun, other weeks it's slow and dramatic. But always the aim is to enjoy the process, and not feel intimidated.


The next step. 1hour 30 minutes. It's a more technical warm-up and a longer dance routine which builds from the beginner level. Some form of dance training is helpful.


Classes are 1 hour 45 minutes with a similar warm-up to the elementary class, adding more to the dance routine. Students are expected to have some ballet training. The focus is on the individual dancer's progress and students are encouraged to give mutual support during class. Challenging enough for professionals, too.
