Getting Children Moving!
With obesity rates in pre-school children at their highest right now, exercise is so important to avoid this continuing into later life. Exercise should be enjoyed. In the first few years of every child's life how they view exercise is instilled and their view will stay with them for life, so teach them that exercise can be great fun! Dance is an ideal way of doing this.
Dancing for pre-school children is not only a great way of keeping fit and active, but it's also great fun!
Diddi dance - Great fun for girls and boys
Dance isn't just for girls! Boys want to jump around to their favourite music just as much as their female friends. He may not want to be a ballerina or fairy but give him a toy guitar and he's a rock and roll star! Plus boys need tiring out just as much, if not more than girls and what better way to do this than 45 minutes of jumping, turning, galloping, moving and shaking?
Diddi dance offers a unique 45-minute class. We engage and inspire the children's own creativity by using action songs, dancing games, fun exercises, hoops and dance ribbons to our own funky pop songs.
Always something new and exciting to enjoy
Diddi dance classes change themes every six weeks exploring styles such as salsa, country, bollywood, African, hip hop and tap, catering for all tastes. Classes follow a structured plan yet are taught in a relaxed atmosphere where children can learn at their own pace as their confidence builds.
As well as Classes, Diddi dance offers a hugely successful private party package and takes bookings from nurseries and schools alongside their ‘regular’ dance timetable. Diddi dance also has a range of merchandise to promote their dance theme.
Diddi dance classes were developed when Professional dancer Anne-Marie Wilkins realised a gap existed in the fitness and dancing arena that gave opportunities for children as young as two years old to join a structured, fun, action packed dancing class of varying styles.
Anne-Marie, who has over 15 years of teaching experience, developed a programme that encourages pre-school children (along with their parents/carers) to build confidence and stamina and so improve their rhythm and coordination through fun dancing games and exercises.
As well as being the MD and Founder of diddi dance, Anne-Marie herself is also a Franchise Owner and runs a very successful Franchise in London. Anne-Marie provides creative and PR support to all our Franchisees and we feel this ‘hands on’ approach of Management is highly effective in being able to understand our business from a Franchisees perspective.

Training and Support
Full Training is provided in London in every aspect of running your own business and teaching successful classes.
My major plus about running a Diddi Dance franchise is the amazing flexibility it has with fitting into family life.
After my 2nd child I could not have returned to work due to the cost of childcare. Diddi Dance has been the answer to all my worries as I can work while the children are at school and pre-school without having to rely on any child care.
My children have also come with me from time to time and loved joining in. I'm not sure how we would have survived without this extra income and it's something I love doing! Once the children are at full time school I will be able to expand as much as I want!
Alysia - franchisee Woking
Emma Hayward, enjoys the exciting business of diddi dance!
I am a Mummy to two children, Oliver 4 and Megan 21 months living in Malpas Cheshire. I am very enthusiastic, outgoing and bubbly and have diddi danced with Oliver since he was 20 months old and we both love it so I was very excited to join as a franchisee in 2011.
Before I launched the franchise, I attended a week long training course with Anne-Marie the diddi dance founder. I was assessed running a class and required to pass the assessment before I could start teaching. This was daunting, however we had spent many hours building up to this so looking back we were well prepared!
During the week we also received training on other aspects of the franchise such as paperwork and database and toddler psychology elements. An in depth training manual covers most of the day to day running of the franchise and Head Office are always available for additional queries no matter how small and get back to you the same day which is really handy. We also have a meeting at least once a year to share results and complete additional training and the other franchisees have been very welcoming and helpful.
Classes seem to be going well, most are getting pretty full and numbers are building. The great thing about diddi dance is that the majority of customers are brought to you via word of mouth meaning that you don’t need to spend masses on advertising once the classes have become established. I have lots of diddi dancers still with me from day one and have now done lots of their birthday parties. It is lovely to see them grow in confidence as the months progress.
With a diddi dance franchise you literally decide the level of input that you are prepared to give in order to achieve your personal goals. Being quite ambitious, for me this often means late nights on the laptop or taking on more classes than I planned to, however this is my choice and fits far more into my desired work life balance than my previous career path ever did. For me the flexibility of choosing my own hours, having 3 afternoons off a week and being able to get to the nursery gate every day for 3.30 make this the best life decision I have ever made and I regularly tell myself that I can’t believe how lucky I was to have everything fall into place to allow me to have done this!
