Wish there were more classes you could go to with your little one on weekends? Including through school holidays? With times to work around naps? Without having to sign up for a term?
Look no further!
Dinky Disco classes are fun, interactive sessions suitable for 0-5 year olds and their grown-ups. We’ll have you dancing the morning away to great pop and action songs, whilst stimulating your senses with lights and a range of exciting props! Get to know the cheeky, lovable ‘Dinky Disco Crew’ (puppets) Des, DeeDee and Dave, as they dance, giggle and chat with everyone throughout the sessions.
The main objective is FUN – improved coordination, creativity, confidence, cooperation and rhythm (to name but a few) are happy by-products!
Dinky Disco will officially be opening its doors at The Bramley Room, Bramley Village Hall, on Sunday 24th July. Sessions last an hour, beginning at 9.30am and 11.15am. We’d love to see you there!
Advanced booking through our website is essential – www.dinkydisco.co.uk. You DON’T need to sign up to a full term. We offer complete flexibility to book individual or multiple classes months in advance or on the day! At just £2.75 per person, we’re an affordable, fun class for you and your young child(ren) to enjoy together during that precious, weekend family time.
DINKY DISCO PARTIES
Personalised Party Options for 8 and Unders
Dinky Disco also offer personalised, private parties suitable for 8 and unders.
A standard party package (from £100 for 1 hour and £165 for two hours), includes a disco, complete with lights, music, party dances, props and, if wanted, party games. Props currently include bubbles, pompoms, maracas, scarves and flashing balls, but this selection is growing all the time!
The Dinky Disco Crew (puppets, Disco Des, Disco DeeDee and Disco Dave, currently featuring on our Facebook page) also come along, and the birthday boy/girl receives a ‘Dinky’ version of their choice to keep. Each child over 3 receives a glow bracelet and all children get a Dinky Disco sticker.
A personalised video message to the birthday boy/girl from a crew member of your choice is posted on the Dinky Disco Facebook page the evening before the party, and sent to you to keep.
Here at Dinky Disco, we’re very much hands on, working with a headset mic, rather than being behind a desk away from the children. You can choose any favourite songs in advance. We don’t charge per head, but instead for our time. The only restriction on numbers is therefore dictated by your chosen venue and its capacity. We’re happy to travel within a 10 mile radius of Basingstoke (further for an additional fee). Our sound/lighting equipment caters for a maximum audience of 250, but could be equally well suited to a party at home.
We’re happy to try and accommodate any particular requests you may have!
Since launching our website, making our presence on Facebook and Twitter felt and hosting our exclusive Preview Parties, we’ve had lots of interest in our parties! With bookings already in the diary as far ahead as January 2017, don’t delay in getting in touch if you’re interested in a Dinky Disco Party for your little one’s birthday, Christening or special occasion.
Who’s behind Dinky Disco?
My name’s Nikki, I’m a proud mum of 3 boys and my background lies in teaching and performing Drama and Music. Having taught piano to special needs children as my ‘Saturday job’ when still at school myself, I went on to study for a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies (BA Hons), followed by a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in Secondary Performing Arts (PGCE, QTS). Whilst at university, I spent the summer holidays as a children’s entertainer on Haven holiday parks, leading the Tiger Club by day, and DJ’ing and hosting the family shows by night.
After studying, I had a successful 10-year career teaching Drama and Music in secondary schools. I set up and led my own departments, consistently delivering excellent results.
Having been a stay at home mum for the last two and a half years, I’m raring to realise my dream of creating and delivering slick, engaging and fun disco-themed classes for pre-schoolers, accessible to all!
I’ve chosen to offer my classes on a weekend as I’ve witnessed the heartbreak of my mum friends, as they return to work and desperately crave classes they can still go to with their little ones. I’ve seen the look in my husband’s eyes as I’ve recounted what our boys have been up to that day, while he’s been at work. I’m excited to be able to fill that gap!
I’ve chosen to offer flexible bookings. I know as well as anyone that trying to commit to a regular weekly class for a term at a time can be difficult on a weekday, let alone a weekend!
Dinky Disco is NOT part of a franchise or bigger organisation, but a brand new start up, being planned, organised and run in my ‘spare’ time from being a full time mum to three under threes. I’m incredibly proud of the positive feedback to date and can’t wait to welcome you to my classes!
I will leave you with some of the five-star reviews that we’ve received since last week’s Preview Parties.
What people are saying about Dinky Disco following last week’s Preview Parties:
‘Went to the preview party and it was excellent. Lots of different toys to keep the kids interested and puppets too. Very professionally run but also very friendly. The venue is not too big or crowded so it is easy to keep your eyes on your little one.’ – Helen
‘Had a fantastic morning at our first dinky disco session. Both my 2 year old and 6 month old enjoyed it. Great music and lots of fabulous props for the children to use. Really lovely atmosphere and fun way to start a Sunday!’ – Jo
‘Such a fun start to a Sunday morning! Disco lights, lots of energy and props to dance with and a real mix of tunes for the little ones (and the grown ups!) to sing along with! If you’re in the area and are looking for some fun on a Sunday morning then do get involved! Works up the appetite for the Sunday roast :)’ – Laura
‘Thank you so much for the best fun we had on Sunday. Harry had a ball, he felt so relaxed at your disco, he was able to leave my hip quickly and socialise. That’s big, considering he has been a pickle before hand. Thanks to you x’ – Jessica
‘My two year old really enjoyed himself and liked playing with all the props (maracas, pom poms, light up balls etc) and interacting with all the other children. We will definitely attend again!’ – Karolina
