For those of you who may or may not know North London franchisee Charlene Dinger recently made the decision to move back to her home in Toronto, Canada back in March 2014, and she has been running the franchise remotely since.
After putting the business up for sale she recently sold the North West part of the territory to one of her wonderful teachers, Anuschka Socher!
Anuschka will be taking over the management and direction of all classes and sessions running in Camden, Crouch End, Finchley & Surrounding areas – so classes currently running at Arts Depot, YMCA Harringay Club, Jacksons Lane Theatre, Muswell Hill Centre and Huggle.
Anuschka has been part of the diddi dance company for almost 2 years now, and has been teaching a number of classes across London. She is an integral part of the North London team, and we have no doubt she will be a wonderful franchisee!
Feel free to email Anuschka directly now via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Charlene will continue to run classes in Highbury & Islington, Stoke Newington and surrounding area, until she can find someone to take over this area as well. If you are potentially interested in purchasing Charlene’s remaining area contact her directly on email@example.com.
A little bit more about Anushcka:
Tell us a bit about yourself:
My name is Anuschka and I am a professional dancer & dance teacher in my twenties. I am originally from Germany and moved to London in 2013.
Two years later, it was time for a new adventure, so here I am.
What did you do before diddi dance?
Before I started working for diddi dance as a teacher in 2014, I had graduated from a German ballet school, where I had been trained mainly in classical ballet and contemporary dance, and moved to London in order to establish myself as a performer and dance teacher.
However, it wasn’t until I joined diddi dance, when I fully discovered my passion and love for teaching toddlers as young as 18 months and giving them their first experience in a sport and more importantly a form of art that has had and continues to have such a great influence on my life and myself as a person.
How were you affiliated with your new diddi dance franchise before taking it over?
I have been teaching the classes at Artsdepot in North Finchley and delivered weekly sessions at the Bringing up Baby nursery in Kentish Town. I have covered classes at most if not all diddi dance venues in North London at some point and always felt very much part of the diddi dance family there.
What made you want to take on an already established diddi dance?
Taking over an already established diddi dance franchise meant I didn’t have to start from scratch – I could pick it up at a point where it is already running successfully, delivering a great number of fun and action packed classes to an even greater number of toddlers, and I feel confident that I will be able to take it even further from here.
And finally, what are you looking forward to the most with your new diddi dance franchise?
I am very much looking forward to the responsibilities that come with owning, running and growing a business – however, if there is one thing I look forward to most, it would be the chance to share my love for dance with even more diddi ones and being rewarded with their smiles at the end of even more diddi dance classes.
