Hi, I'm Miriam :)
I have always had a strong passion for inspiring children through music and dancing! With my wealth of dance teaching experience along with my training at Paul McCartney's LIPA, the launch of TODP seemed like a very natural step to take!
What's the goal?
Bringing happiness and confidence to hundreds of children each week is the best job in the world and I wouldn't change it for anything!
The company was born out of a strong desire to inspire and energise others through dance. We firmly believe that dance can be used as a powerful weapon to boost confidence, bring people together and create lasting memories. All we want is to uplift people and make sure everyone leaves one of our events with a big smile on their face and feeling amazing.I wanted to provide an alternative to the low energy and uninspiring 'traditional' birthday parties that were exhausting parents every weekend. Times are changing and so are the kids and so I wanted to create the next coolest thing for the modern day mover (and a job that I loved!).
I have the most AMAZING team!
We are a small team and I am VERY picky with our Party Leaders! I only use people that are trained performers but more importantly EXPERTS in keeping children engaged and having the best time! We are all BUBBLY, YOUTHFUL & FUN!
If you would like to join our team please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

The one song which always gets me up on my feet: Come on Eileen - Dexy Midnight RUnners or Dancing in the Moonlight - Toploader (..I'm a little old before my time!)
My earliest dancing memory: When I was 5 and I moved up to the junior classes from the preps and my dance teacher was ultra scary, and I panicked so much because I didn't have a clue what first position was...15 years later I still panic whenever somebody says "feet in first" but at least I know the position now (I think..!)
