Pineap­ple Dance Stu­dios

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 11pm, ABC2 It’s easy to get the im­pres­sion that the sparkle has gone out of dance shows, what with the re­cent ax­ing of Ten’s bright hope Ev­ery­body Dance Now. So it was with some trep­i­da­tion that I loaded the pre­view disc of Pineap­ple Dance Stu­dios. I wasn’t mol­li­fied when I looked at the times­lot but con­soled my­self that at least Aunty wouldn’t have forked out mil­lions for men­tors alone. Thank­fully PDS turns out to be a com­edy re­al­ity pro­gram that de­lights in send­ing it­self up gut­less. No con­tes­tants, no elim­i­na­tions, no aw­ful judges, no ex­pen­sive men­tors. In the end it’s like a re­ally stupid dance ver­sion of the David Wal­liams and Matt Lu­cas mock­u­men­tary Come Fly with Me. What a re­lief.
