Franchise FAQS

Below are some of the most commonly asked questions, but if you want to know anything else at all please contact us here 

Why do I need to pay an initial fee?

The initial franchise fee is not a profit for us. It covers all your training, resources, licences and insurances as well as a generous postcode area. For the right franchise application, we can support them in obtaining funding or a loan for this initial investment and we guarantee that you will receive your initial investment back within the first six months of operating your business. 

Do I need a background in dance?

Yes a knowledge of dance is essential. If you wish to teach the classes as well as run the franchise, we require you to have a dance degree or associate and/or a performance background. Alternatively, a teaching degree or similar equivalent qualification is also acceptable.

I love this idea. I have experience of teaching dance to children. Why shouldn’t I just set up my own company?

By taking on a tiny toes franchise you will inherit a program with a strong reputation and a proven track record of success. Rather than spending time (and money) creating logos, learning the most effective marketing techniques and developing your syllabus, you will have all of this right away. You will also have the full support of a team of experts including business and marketing mentors, IT specialists and our own Head Office, all of whom are committed to your success. In short, you will be making profits far earlier and expanding far quicker than if you were to create your own business.

How much can I expect to earn?

To find forecasts indicative of average Year 2 franchises please request our brochure.

"The earning potential is huge; it is only limited by how much time you are prepared to teach or how much effort you want to put into setting up classes and finding teachers. I honestly don’t know of many jobs where you can earn so much a week for so few hours of work. So you can earn full-time money for part-time work and have the satisfaction of running your own business, successfully and securely....it’s almost a dream!"
