It is a whole year since I started my babyballet franchise and it has been the fastest year of my life! I've absolutely loved it and can't wait to see what each year brings. This was easily the best decision I've ever made.
Thank you so much to the head office team for welcoming me to the family with open arms, and to Claire for being such a fab big boss and an inspiration with your amazing work ethic and drive, it certainly spurs me on!
I discovered babyballet nearly 5 years ago now, when I first became a teacher for the pre-school ballet classes. I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere, syllabus and how much fun the dance classes were to teach.
When moving away from Manchester I did not want to give up teaching babyballet, so I decided to take the leap to set up my own babyballet Franchise...And it's been the best decision I've ever made! Its opened me up to a world of new friends and support. I find that it's great to be my own boss, but have the support right there, whenever I need it!
I'd always dreamed of running my own ballet school so when I heard that babyballet were looking to expand their franchises - well, it just felt like the right time for me to go ahead with my plan. For me babyballet gives children something far more meaningful than learning to dance. It gives them confidence and a real joy in dance that I don't think I've seen before. The babyballet team are really supportive of me and nothing is ever too much trouble.
It's my 8th year as a babyballet franchisee and I still absolutely love it! The magic of teaching preschoolers their first steps combined with the flexibility of being my own boss, all the while knowing that I have the backing and support of such a fantastic brand, is just the best feeling ever.
I am so thankful that I have found a job that I enjoy as much as I enjoyed dancing!
I wish I had started babyballet years ago.
The training to join the babyballet franchise family was fantastic. During the initial training course, every aspect of running a business was covered - from office and admin management through to running the dance classes themselves. From day one I felt like part of the babyballet team and nothing was too much trouble - no matter how many questions or queries I had!
