Over the past two months several award nominations have come through for diddi dance as a company and for some of our franchisees. See what we are currently up for below and if your local diddi dance has been nominated be sure to show your support by voting for them, if you can, and saying “Congrats” next time you are in class!
First up is Emma Hayward of diddi dance North Shropshire, Central Cheshire & North West Staffordshire. She was shortlisted for the mumandworking award – Franchisee of the Year earlier this summer and just this past week it was announced she is now a finalist for the award! Congratulations Emma!

Last, but certainly not least, we have a new award recognising both diddi dance and a franchisee – the INSPIRES! Awards. The purpose of these awards, as described by the organisers, is:
There are many individuals in the dance industry working passionately to support and inspire the next generation of dance. Their hard work and contribution often goes unrecognised and we think it’s time to acknowledge their impact. They are the future.
diddi dance is up for the Organisation Impact Award – An organisation or company with a mission to positively impact the dance industry through their services and opportunities.
And our franchisee Gina Kane (nee Field) of diddi dance West London is up for the Inspiration Teacher Award. This award is voted for by the general public so please show your support not just for Gina but for all diddi dance teachers and vote for her by going here and clicking on her name/photo! Voting closes 4th October, so don’t miss your chance!
The nominees will be shortlisted by 16th October with winners being announced 24th November.
