Hear from Emma, the owner of the Derby Franchise, about her franchise journey.

Emma runs Workshops and Intergenerational sessions in Derby and the surrounding area. Emma changed from her teaching career that she loved but didn’t fit around her life, to finding our Boogie Beat Music and Movement franchise that fits perfectly around her and her family.

“11 years ago my Boogie Beat journey began and what a journey it has been so far!

Boogie Beat allowed me to find flexible working through franchising.

I loved teaching…but my dream job soon became a job I no longer wanted.

After having my first baby, I instantly realised how teaching took over my life.  It was a job for a single person.  A job that made me lose precious time with my family due to the masses of ‘after hours’ marking, planning and assessing!

Being part time didn’t really change the workload whatsoever!!  In fact, it felt like I was doing more!

At this point I knew I had to look for something to help improve my work, life balance.  This is when I found Boogie Beat!

I started off running classes alongside my teaching role.  It was hard work but I knew it would be worth it in the long run!  After a while building up my business, I took the plunge, left teaching and didn’t look back!!

No more staying up to the early hours planning and marking, no more worrying about paper work, just quality time with my loved ones and a lot healthier mental health.

Now, 3 children later and 5 years on from running Boogie Beat full time, I have two class teachers and business is flourishing!”
