Funny and entertaining, Pineapple Dance Studios is an innovative Factual Entertainment hybrid set in a world-renowned dance rehearsal studio.
A "performance documentary" that pioneered a new form of
constructed reality, the original production techniques and
exceptional characters saw the hit series gain a huge press
following and fanbase in the UK and beyond. The series
follows the lives of teachers, pupils and staff at the famous
studios as they attend auditions, rehearsals and performances in a
unique setting where dreams are made, parts are won and lost and
fabulous is a heartfelt emotion.
Filmed entirely in HD, Pineapple Dance Studios combined
exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of everyday life at the studios
with interviews and set pieces from staff and pupils.
Blurring the lines between documentary, comedy and drama it created
a new style of documentary filmmaking. It also launched a number of
unique characters; from millionaire founder Debbie Moore to
outrageous Artistic Director Louie Spence, self-proclaimed 'ready
made pop star' Andrew Stone to Mark Battershall who is one of the
UK's most celebrated choreographers.
The series has been sold in 14 countries, won an RTS Award, was
nominated for a Rose D'Or and Bafta Award, and was Highly Commended
at the 2011 Broadcast Awards.
Format: 13 X 60"
