Pinner Pantomime Evening

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!

Choreography Competition

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!
