Business profile:
The business operates two franchised areas in Cornwall and offers dance, drama and singing schools for children in the four to eighteen age group. A pre-school class for four to six year olds is also available as a pre curser to the main group.

Both classes are extremely well established with a reputation for excellence in both business practice and quality of tuition. The smaller classes of fifteen children facilitate good levels of attention and support for every child.

Classes operate in the evenings and at weekends with each term lasting for twelve weeks. The fee per term is £318 per student with the “early learners” commanding £159.00 per term. There is scope for development and another two schools could be introduced within the franchise territory.

The franchisor offers ongoing support in the form of training, marketing and IT solutions to make sure each franchisee maximises its own potential. The schools are the only ones in the region to have Council of Dance Education and Training accreditation.
