Strawbs Go Dirty Dancing

it's january 
and we've had far too many mickey mouse cupcakes
so we were super happy to be invited to try out a new workout dance class
at our fave - Pineapple.

Non-Stop Dirty Dancing is taught by Paul Kitson, yes - that's right
the first ever brit to play Johnny Castle in the west end! #danceteachergoals

we headed to those pink neon lights and got ready to boogie
because nobody puts strawberries in the corner
