Pineapple Dance Studios
Pineapple Dance Studios Well forget Louie Spence, Andrew Stone, and The Pineapple Dance Group, Develop EBP have acquired their very own dance group.
Develop EBP organised a work related learning visit for 50 students from Barnfield South, Barnfield West and Barnfield Enterprise Academy's to experience the privilege of attending their very own master class at the world famous Pineapple Dance Studios in London. The students who are currently studying Performing Arts at GCSE Level ranged from years 8 to 11. The aim of the visit was to sample and start to understand what a career in performing arts would entail. The excitement was buzzing from the moment everyone stepped onto the coach.
On arrival at Pineapple Studios they were met by their dance teacher for the day, Michelle Queen. Michelle has performed alongside many stars such as, Rihanna, Shakira and is currently working on a project with the '80's idol Adam Ant.
Helen Ashton the Head of Faculty for Specialism’s at Barnfield Federation, expressed that the students were very enthusiastic about Hip Hop/Street dance. Develop EBP working together with Michelle were able to base the seminar around this request. The students were then taught the choreography to the up and coming Jessie J’s “Do it like a dude”. After working hard and sweating buckets, the students were very proud of themselves when they completed the whole routine. The day ended with a question and answer session with Michelle who explained that to become a successful dancer you have to put in an awful lot of hard work, have determination and be prepared for knock backs along the way.
Mia Clinton from Barnfield West said, “I learnt some really interesting fact about different styles of dance. The routine was really fun. I just wish it could have lasted longer”.
Helen Ashton commented, “It was so well organised and it ran so smoothly, from preparation and paperwork to the actual event it was great for me and took away so much of the stress. The students had a fantastic day and were real ambassadors for Barnfield. They thrived on everything from beginning to end. A particular favourite part of mine was the sensible questions that they asked during the question and answer session that really focused on future careers and such as like. It certainly gave them lots to think about! I think seeing how tired they were is a real testament to how much they got out of it! We will definitely use Develop EBP again to plan trips that are on offer. What they have learnt in their time today will not only equip them to get through school with the odd dance move, but will equip them for the world of work for a long time to come.”
