Pineapple Dance Studios
What better location for your London Dance experience than the world-famous Pineapple Studios, brought into the spotlight by the recent Sky 1 reality show. We are very excited to be able to offer workshops at these top studios, superbly located in buzzing Covent Garden (subject to availability.)
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre “Lively Action” workshops
The spirit at the core of all Globe Education’s work is that plays should be explored practically as plays rather than read passively as texts. Workshops and lectures are tailored to support the National Curriculum or a group’s identified learning objectives. Led by Globe Education Practitioners, they can focus on any text selected for classroom study and include an exploration of the theatre. Choose between a 1h30 or 2h15 session and add on the optional Exhibition visit.
Recognising the varied and valuable role that Contemporary Music plays in the lives of young people, we encourage students to explore their potential and develop confidence in their creative talents.

- Enhance and gain confidence in their performances
- Explore creativity, communication and technical skill
- Advance critical listening and appraising skills
- Develop performance, composing and listening skills – harmony, tonality rhythm and melody
- Participate, collaborate and work with others
