Hello, I'm Maggie at Pineapple Performing Arts School!


We offer a warm and friendly environment for students to learn a variety of professional, disciplined performing arts subjects. All of our tutors are widely recognised industry professionals, they have lots of teaching experience working with all age groups and levels. All our adult and teenage students have the opportunity to perform in a variety of top London theatres at the end of each 12 week course and the Junior school, (including Pineapple Chunks) perform in an all singing all dancing production at the end summer term! It’s also a great place to meet new people and build confidence, whilst developing your performing arts skills. I look forward to welcoming you one day at Pineapple Studios to take part in one of our many courses or classes on offer!

All classes take place at Pineapple Dance Studios in London’s Covent Garden. Principal Maggie Paterson, a teacher at the studios for almost 30 years, opened the Performing Arts School in the building in September 1998. Every Sunday since then the studios have buzzed with the energy of over 250 students singing, dancing and acting.

Students are accepted from the age of three, "Pineapple Chunks" The remainder of the school is divided into junior school students aged five-eleven years, senior school students aged twelve to seventeen years and adults courses, for anyone regardless of experience aged eighteen plus.
