Liz & Rachel

“We met at antenatal classes when we were pregnant with our first children. Once our boys were born we had an amazing year off on maternity leave and decided we didn’t want to go back to our day jobs so decided becoming part of a franchise was the way to go.

In April 2016 we decided to bite the bullet and went to London for an open day at diddi dance with the amazing founder Anne-Marie! We were absolutely hooked from that day and our business was born! It has been the most amazing thing we have ever done and to be part of such an incredible diddi family is the best feeling ever! Our boys were the reason for us taking this huge step in our lives and we could not be happier, we love our job, we’ve never loved a job as much as this!”
