Focus On......

An insight into the life of a babyballet® franchisee

It was dance that brought Kate Markham and Jo-Anne Torre together and helped them both through some tough times.

Now the best friends are going into business together and bringing the UK’s leading pre-school dance academy, babyballet, to Tyneside.

Forty-five-year-old Kate and 38-year-old Jo-Anne opened their North Tyneside babyballet school in Whitley Bay in September 2017. It is the first babyballet school in the North East, and a personal triumph for them both.

They say  "We started our first classes in September 2017 after the school summer holidays. Our student intake for our first term was approximately 76 students. Our second term ended with 123…almost doubling our intake!

Just over a year down the line we have a thriving babyballet® business and have taken the leap to expand our area to cover North Tyneside, Newcastle North and Gateshead West."


Interview with parents in business.....

Each month we talk to a business owner or work from home parent in order to gain some knowledge about their job.

We cover the highs and lows of parents juggling family life and maintaining a successful career. We also pick up some hints and tips along the way.

This month we talk to Fiona Simpson from Artventurers, who's found a way to build a flexible  arty business around family life.

Fiona was recently named Woman Franchisor of the Year 2018 to go alongside her other awards; Overall Top Franchise and Most Supportive Franchise 2017!
