Waggle Dance About UsIzolde created Waggle Dance to fill a gap she discovered through her own quest to find enriching and inspiring gifts for her son and his friends:

I love giving family and friends unique experiences as gifts – spa treatments, music shows, dance classes – something different and memorable. Since my son was born, I have experienced the total onslaught of plastic! So much material stuff is gifted on special occasions, I started looking in vain for more fun, meaningful and lasting gifts that could be found and gifted easily.
