The philosophy behind the creation of Pineapple Dance Studios was to break down the elitist barriers surrounding dance, and make it available to everyone, from the absolute beginner to the advanced and professional dancer.
Pineapple offers more classes and a wider variety of dance styles than any other studio in Europe. There are nearly 40 different varieties to choose from, ranging from classical ballet to street jazz, hip hop to salsa, Egyptian dance to Bollywood grooves plus many more.

I had 0 expectations coming in, which might be why I was so impressed. I haven't done a dance class...well, ever, unless you count the Toronto District School Board's Bollywood class with lots of middle aged and older women who seriously lack rhythm and the ability to learn choreography. And even then, I missed half the classes because of work. So I was channeling my inner musical theatre... more
