Pinner Theatre Dance was established in 1978 and has an excellent reputation in the area for its high quality of teaching. We currently have classes in Pinner, Ruislip, Eastcote and Hatch End.

The school aims to give pupils enjoyment and to build confidence. Dance examinations can be taken with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (I.S.T.D.) examining board in tap, modern, jazz and ballet.
Street Dance classes are for students from 8 years old and teaches them the latest moves to the latest sounds, as well as improving their fitness and stamina in a fun and friendly environment.

Adults are well catered for with several tap classes, as well as a tap group which competes in the dance festivals. There are also 2 exercise classes a week. They are ideal for any age group (18-80!) and are great for keeping fit, toning up and making friends. We now have 2 adult ballet classes.

From time to time top teachers from around the world come to Pinner Theatre Dance to give masterclasses in their dance speciality. The school mounts a full scale production every few years and in addition there is the opportunity to take part in competitions and displays.



Our Adult Festival group performed their latest routine on Wednesday 11th April at the Ealing Festival and won the Adult Entertainment section with 89 marks!


Congratulations- you were all brilliant!


Congratulations to all who performed at the Pinner Pantomime evening. Although it was freezing cold, you did brilliantly! We are very proud of you.

TAPATHON 2017 this year involved 7,518 tappers!!! What an incredible achievement for us all — every year we are improving on the previous year's numbers. We fell short of the record by just 78 people.

Each year, thousands of tap dancers come together all over the UK, each one determined to smash the record. It's all in support of a great cause (BBC Children in Need) and this year the event raised in excess of £38,600. Harrow Theatre Dance and Pinner Theatre Dance raised an additional £80 through our cake sale.


And save the date for TAPATHON 2018: Sunday 18th November. We're going to get this record broken!

Adult tap festival group- Well done on another great year. We came back with 2 trophies and a score  of 100 marks for  the Ealing festival!

Another successful choreography competition was held on Sunday 2nd April. The students choreographed their own routines and performed them in front of an audience. Our adjudictor, Mary Vaughan (the founder of Pinner Theatre Dance) awarded trophies and medals to the winners. Well done everyone!

Pinner Pantomime 2016

On 24th November, many of our groups performed for Pinner Pantomime evening. Congratulations to everyone- you all looked great!

Tapathon 2016 - On Sunday 20th November, we attempted to beat the world record for the largest tap dance. We were even closer this year to breaking the record, so we are very excited about trying again next year. We raised an additional £90 for Children in Need through our cake sale.

Our grade 2 modern class represented the school for the Cannon Lane 60th Anniversary celebrations on 5th November. They performed beautifully! Well done to you all!



On Saturday 9th July, the whole school performed at Hatch End High School for our show. Everyone was very excited and the audience were impressed by the talent our students displayed. The proceeds of the show (plus a few generous donations) totalled £725 which was donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Well done to everyone involved!
