Hi everyone. My name is Diane and I own Hartbeeps West Lothian. I am the face behind the emails and Facebook posts and I also deliver sessions in Linlithgow on Wednesdays and Broxburn on Fridays as well as nursery sessions in different locations. I am also currently delivering our Bathgate sessions while the lovely Fiona is on maternity leave.
I am mum to Evie who is 5 and Ellis who is 2. I have been running Hartbeeps in West Lothian since August 2015 but before that I trained as a professional dancer, choreographed and performed shows overseas and then taught dance upon returning to the UK. After a change of career in the banking industry, I attended a Hartbeeps session in Falkirk with Evie and immediately fell in love with the magical classes. It was the highlight of my (and Evies) week when I was on maternity leave. I loved that time where I could actually play with my daughter uninterrupted. Fast forward 4 years and I have also been taking Ellis along to sessions with Evie. It's lovely watching them play together and bond in class. As a session leader, I love to see little ones enjoying all the different songs and activities as well as seeing how they change every week and hearing about milestones they are reaching.
Fun fact about me..... I used to be a bingo caller!!!
I look forward to meeting you all in class soon.
