Meet the franchisee

Miss Claire – Franchisee and teacher


babyballet Bournemouth and Poole

I started up babyballet® Bournemouth and Poole in January 2012.
With a background in dancing and acting, I felt it was a natural progression to move into teaching and pass on my knowledge to the children of Bournemouth and Poole (My hometown).
I began dancing at the tender age of 3, here in Bournemouth! I loved it so much that I never gave up. At 18 years old, I was accepted into the Prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts where I completed a 3 year course in performing arts. After graduating, I was lucky enough to travel the world dancing on cruise ships and in cabarets and pantomimes. A keen actress, I also performed in many plays which took me to many interesting places around the U.K and the World.
The Bournemouth and Poole franchise now also runs classes in Christchurch and as far as Lymington. With classes held Monday through to Saturday at 15 venue’s the team and I are proud to teach over 350 students each and every week.
I am thrilled to be the franchisee for Bournemouth and Poole and am extremely grateful to my family and friends for their continued support!


.Miss Emily stared dancing at the tender age of 3 and fell in love with it! She was accepted onto a 3 years performing arts course at Colin’s Performing Arts School and graduated in 2009 with the award for ‘Best Dancer’.

Miss Becky – Office Administrator

Miss Becky is a babyballet® mummy with 3 children and have loved going on the babyballet® journey from tinies to groovers with her little ones. Her youngest children still attend babyballet® so she knows first hand what it’s like to be a babyballet® parent! She danced as a child and has previously run her own business so working in the babyballet® office is a perfect fit and she thoroughly enjoys being part of the lovely sparkly team. She is always here (alongside Miss Chloe) to answer any question’s you might have and to keep the business running smoothly.

"Back in February my daughter was too shy to even enter the room at babyballet. But thanks to Miss Holly’s kind, patient and extremely caring nature she has created an environment where my daughter now feels comfortable and happy, and joins in enthusiastically. Miss Holly is a great teacher but also a lovely person who tailors her style to the child in question (even asking me how best to encourage my daughter). She is a great role model for the children to become strong and healthy, calm and polite. How she stays so serene in a room full of preschoolers I have no idea!"
