The class I attended here was actually held by an external instructor as part of her European tour but I think it speaks volumes for the programme that Pineapple offers that they include international classes not normally available in the UK.

The building itself is a bit worn around the edges. The fact that the windows couldn't be opened on the fourth floor studio where over 30 women were twerking their hearts out (and getting very hot and sweaty in the process) was definitely a low light of the whole experience although not enough to stop me coming back.


I visited Pineapple recently for an hen party. I know it's sounds crazy but we took a dance class following the moves of Beyoncè. 

The teacher was very amiable and welcoming. 😊  I'm not a good dancer, in fact I'm actually quite bad with coordination but I was able to remember and do the whole choreography. I was quite proud of myself, when I went back home I was even showing off with husband. 

The bride as well was really happy and we had an amazing hour of dancing and laughing. 

Totally recommended! 


When I first moved to London joining Pineapple Dance Studios was one of the first things I did. Always wanted to take classes here and they have lived up to the expectation. I go to Pineapple for hiphop classes and also workout classes. The Body Blitz on Wednesday is a great one to get you sweaty, a variety of Yoga, Fit&Flexi on a Monday is the ultimate feel good (don't have to be a dancer) workout class going I always come out feeling a million bucks and the beginner hiphop class on Tuesday and Friday evenings with Shaun Paul is a great class to get moving and grooving (not to intimating like some of the other higher level classes) 

The changing rooms are in need of a bit of a revamp and a good clean but the quality of the classes make up for this. Overall a really great experience. Remember to go and not worry about anyone else looking at you or feeling intimidated, go and have fun! 


I have begun regularly taking a HIIT class here (its not just dance classes available!) and I really enjoy the class. The teacher is great and everyone is really nice there. However the place itself is a little bit grotty, overall its just very small, and the changing rooms are not very nice, alongside many of the other clientele coming off a little snobby (not in my class though, just in general!) 

I think the place is a bit intimidating for beginners and less confident people. Its quite expensive as you have to pay a membership fee alongside the class cost. You can get different lengths of membership year, month, etc or just pay £4 on the day. I decided to stick to jsut paying the £4 each time (plus the £7 for the class) as I don't plan to go more than once a week. The cost of a year is £200, so even if I went once a week for a whole year I would only be paying £8 more in the end. However as I have already missed one week, and I know I will miss others due to holidays etc then I will never actually go once a week. I would only recommend getting the month/year option if you are going to go multiple times a week.


I admit this studio is really intimidating for beginners like me, as you will be dancing amongst pros regardless of how beginner the class description says. I love the Sat jazz class with Karen Estabrook, it's one of the few classes that I can actually keep up with. Her choreography work is amazing and she builds repeatable modules so you spend the whole hour dancing instead of waiting for the song to reset to the beginning. And when I'm not feeling so intimidated, I get to look around and get inspired by the amazing dancers that are regulars at this studio.


The lesson said beginner.

I wouldn't call myself a dancer. I've had tap lessons in the past, but only for about a year. I managed to progress from absolute beginner to the next level in that time and thought I'd give it another shot after moving to London. I found a couple of venues offering beginner tap classes, Pineapple being one of them.

My first clue should have been when I entered the changing rooms, everyone was limbering up, stretching and practicing routines. Well, I'm here now, may as well try to join in. In the studio, which I'm positive is one of the best studios a dancer could wish for (lighting, sprung floor, mirrors etc), it dawns on me again. I strategically placed myself at the back of the class. After talking to a fellow class mate, who also claimed to be a beginner I felt a little more relaxed... until the class started. 

The teacher jumped straight in, went far too fast and didn't break any of the moves down. My fellow "beginner" must have lied. She followed everything perfectly. I on the other hand was all over the place, out of time and tripping up my own feet. Pineapple is a studio for dancers, not for beginners.

I do secretly like saying I've been for a tap class at Pineapple Studios though.


Probably the most prestigious dance studio in the UK and for a reason – the classes are incredible.

The teachers are extremely talented and always so enthusiastic it’s difficult not to have a good time (shout out to tap dancer Avalon, always happy and passionate).

The studios are great: sprung floors, good lighting, enough floor space… Situated in Covent Garden, you can say the location is more than convenient. And with a huge variety of styles, you’ll be able to pick the classes you always wanted to try – from traditional tap and ballet to Zouk or Bollywood.

The only downside is the price. I know dance studios aren’t particularly cheap but, as you pay the studio each day and the teachers each class, it adds up quite quickly. Plan ahead, people!
