diddi dance Class FAQs
What age groups are the classes for?
Classes are suitable for toddlers from 18 months, however we have had lots of younger children join in. Every child is very different so it is therefore at the parent’s discretion to attend a trial and see if their diddi one enjoys it.
How do I book a taster session?
The easiest way to book for a trial is on the request a trial page on the website. You select your local contact and they will be in touch with details of availability, prices and dates.
When and where are your classes?
For the full list of classes please go to: https://booking.diddidance.com/Class/Find and type in your postcode for your local availability.
How much are classes?
The first session you and your little one attend is a taster session so you can get a feel for whether it is something you and your diddi one might like to do on a regular basis. Bookings are then made in half term blocks. There is also a slightly discounted price if you are signing up siblings to attend the same class at the same time.
Do I have to book for a full term?
No, you don’t. We try to offer as much flexibility as possible without operating as a drop in session. We just ask for half term blocks. These are consecutive weeks. If you should miss one we can if space is available offer a make up class in another session.
Can I just turn up for a session?
The easiest way to check availability is to check our website’s booking system – https://booking.diddidance.com/Class/Find . This shows exactly how many spaces are available for the class. If the class is full you can join the waiting list and will be contacted when a space is available. It is therefore advisable to not turn up without checking with your local contact as we hate to turn children away.
Can you tell me a little more about the class sessions?
All the music we use has been specifically written for us so it is totally original and very pop-esque! We also have 16 difference dance styles that we cover in our half term blocks. Everything from flamenco to disco, hip-hop to bollywood and everything in between. The classes have elements that we repeat week on week for familiarity for our diddi dancers, mixed in with different activities based on the current dance theme to ensure there are new and fresh elements incorporated too.
How long do they last?
The session lasts for 45 minutes.
Do parents stay?
Not only do grown-ups stay, we actively encourage your participation in the class. We find the more you participate, the more it encourages your little one to do the same. It is also a great opportunity for some quality time with your little one.
What does my little one need to wear?
Most little ones attend the class in everyday clothes and shoes. It is a good idea for them to wear something that they are easily able to move around in and pumps or trainers would be ideal. We do have little ones who love to get dressed up too, so if your little one would like to come dressed as a ballerina, rockstar or dinosaur then that is absolutely fine too. We also encourage an extra item to wear for each theme – for example – top hat for Tap or sunglasses for Reggae.
Can younger siblings attend the session?
Yes. Not a problem. At most of the classes you will see younger siblings in car seats, push chairs, prams or slings. They are welcome to join in on parts if there are enough props however once they are actively joining in a lot of the class, then payment will need to be made for them.
