Are you looking for a low-cost franchise that gives you the chance to have lots of fun at work, interact with children and their parents and grow a successful business?
In this week’s blog, I’d like to tell you about an exciting, new AFA member called diddi dance, a provider of dance classes for preschool- age girls and boys.
What is diddi dance?
Diddi dance is the only preschool, dance class provider that covers sixteen different dance styles, with lesson plans that complement the EYFS framework. As an award-winning service provider and franchise company, they are passionate about their mission – to get kids moving!
Diddi dance was founded in London in 2003 by Anne-Marie Martin, a professional dancer with many years’ teaching experience. She identified a gap in the preschool, dance class market as, at the time, there were no classes available for children aged sixteen months upwards that allowed free movement within a fun, yet structured, environment.
In 2006, after diddi dance’s initial success in London, Anne-Marie realised that it presented a viable, business opportunity for other individuals looking for the perfect work / life balance and decided to franchise the business. Since then, Diddi dance has won ten industry awards, has over forty franchises across the UK, and is accredited and endorsed by the Children’s Activities Association (CAA) and Exercise Movement Dance UK (EMDUK).
The franchise opportunity
Whether you’re a parent, ex-dancer or ex-employee, diddi dance’s proven system is suitable for anyone who wants to run their own business. The franchise offers multiple rewards and the financial returns are high for a low, initial investment. Their comprehensive franchise package provides all the support you need to start and grow a really successful business and you will receive thorough training, ongoing support and much more.
Diddi dance’s franchise package includes:
- Initial, one-week’s training in London
- Comprehensive training and support manuals to help you with every aspect of running your business
- Business set-up advice and marketing training
- IT support to ensure you don’t run into any technical issues
- Full access to online video and branded material databases
- Ongoing employment and business advice
- Monthly webinars and quarterly, business support calls
- Company newsletters
- Annual, two-day conference
- Franchise assessments
A diddi dance franchise requires an initial investment of just £4,995 +VAT and you will also need enough cash to support yourself and your business during the set-up phase. With a great reputation and business model, diddi dance has secured preferential loan opportunities for potential franchisees, subject to personal status.
Other than the initial investment, you will need to take into consideration the costs of setting up a typical, home-based office, acquiring equipment for your franchise, as well as marketing materials.
Could you be the next diddi dance franchisee?
Diddi dance is always looking for highly motivated individuals, who have the passion and drive to run their own business and make it a success, but like the idea of having the support and guidance of an established brand behind them.
If you have a positive attitude, lots of enthusiasm and want to earn while having fun and bringing smiles to children’s and parents’ faces, diddi dance could be just the franchise opportunity for you!
And don’t worry if you’re not the best dancer in the world, as diddi dance franchisees are not required to teach technique but merely encourage the enjoyment of moving to music.
