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.

Hello, I'm Lorna and I deliver sessions in Whitburn on a Wednesday and Armadale on a Thursday.
I worked in childcare for 5 years as a nursery coordinator gaining my SVQ4 in Social Services Children and Young People. Before that I studied for my BA in Music but what I really wanted to do was combine the two - music and childcare.
I have a little girl called Lily who is 3 years old and we have been attending Hartbeeps sessions since she was 3 months old. I fell in love with the musical journey that not only encourages a child's independent development but encourages a magical one to one interaction with your child. And getting to dress her up with all the props still melts my heart! As an anxious first time mum I felt nothing but warmth, support and acceptance from the moment we sat on our toadstool and I just hope I can be the session leader who makes other children and their grown ups feel the way I did!
Hope to see you in class soon!
