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!

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!). 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 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: miriam@theofficialdanceparty.com


Name: Ellie

If I could perform with one person it would be: Can I have two pleeeeeeeeeease? One boy, one girl: Arron Tveit (my Broadway Prince) and Scarlett Strallen, Queen of the West End!

If I had an Official Dance Party I would choose: The Pamper Posers Party because I love being spoilt rotten and getting to relax whilst somebody else glams me up :p

3 words to describe me: Fun, Silly & Dorky!

Best piece of advice I've been given: "Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway"


Name: Rachel

Trained: 3 Year HND Professional Diploma @ The Brighton Academy

Favourite Dance Style: Watching Irish Dancing (although i've never tried it!)

If I had an Official Dance Party I would choose: Strictly Come Dancing so I could wear a long sparkly dress!

3 words to describe me: Excited, fun and full of beans!

My earliest dance memory was: Trying on my first tutu and feeling like a real ballerina! 

Best piece of advice I've been given: "If you can dream it, you can achieve it!"


Name: Kelsey

Trained: Musical Theater Diploma from Sage Academy of Performing Arts

If I could perform with one person it would be: I would say Diversity but I've already done that so....Bruno Mars is my next goal!

If I had an Official Dance Party I would choose: DEFFO a Street Dance Party!!

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..!)

Best piece of advice I've been given: "Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up!"

Kind words about the team...

Ellie and Kelsey were fantastic and kept the kids well entertained the whole time. Emmie “said it was the most magical birthday ever” so I think it was a success!
— Clare Parrett, Bromley
Katie and Saphii were amazing with the kids. Our daughters were very happy!
— Silvia Cereda, Clapham
Katie and Ruby were brilliant! They really engaged well with the children. Thanks so much
— Louise Worth, Highgate
Thank you so so much, everyone loved it!! Especially the birthday boy of course! We all enjoyed watching them. Thank you so much, please let Andrea know that the kids & parents loved him and he really made Pauls day. He was so happy.
— Barbara Roessler, Imperial Wharf
Ellie and her team were brilliant! I loved everything they did with the kids - the routines, the energy they brought, their improvisation, and even bringing in the parents for a dance off with the kids. Fantastic! Rating - full marks. Thank you so much for great entertainment. One of the Mums is even hoping to use you for her next party.
— Buki, Stanmore
Bryony loved her party today! Katie was great with the children and it was the perfect high energy dance party we were after! Lots of fun was had by all. I would give her 3 out of 3. She engaged well with the children, tried her best to include some of the very shy girls and kept everyone’s attention the whole time. She was energetic and fun, presented the games and routines clearly to the group and did her best to give everyone a great time.
— Holly Collier, Muswell Hill
The kids all had a great time thank you and we were very pleased. It was especially tough given how hot it was so thank you! I thought Katie was great and would give her 3/3. Freya is one of the most sensitive of the lot and she was right in there so that’s a good sign. Thanks again!
— Angela Pixner, Kent
Thank you, Kelsey did very well. The children were very happy and enjoyed their time with her
— Insha, Ilford
