Franchising with Active Creative Ltd is so much fun!


Active Creative Ltd first opened its doors in 2002 with Dinky Dancers as an exciting creative, physical and musical activity programme specifically designed for pre-school children. Since then our award winning programmes and increased range of products for children now up to the age of 11 – Boogaloo Boogie and Motion Commotion have made Active Creative Ltd a leading physical activity provider in the south of England and we are spreading outwards!! We have won contracts with major health and fitness clubs as well as leading Day Nurseries and this year we won Hertfordshire Business of the Year Award and nominated as best physical activity class through the ‘what’s on for little one’s web site and continued franchising across the country. Phew….!

Our classes are distinctive and set us apart from many other companies because of the unique physical mix of Dance, P.E, music and action activities that both boys and girls enjoy so much.

Following the huge success of classes through our fantastic programmes for children, Active Creative Ltd has become a flourishing franchise business offering a great company structure, programme, training and support for you to build a profitable, exciting business from home.

“The process of becoming an Active Creative franchisee was made really easy by all the team. Head Office Staff were always available whenever I called, managers trained and guided me through the business training professionally and energetically and the individual teachers were so much fun to work with that my training really flew by and I couldn’t wait to get started.“ Helen (franchisee)

“Active Creative had a brilliant reputation in Hertfordshire when I joined the team and I wanted to build on that in my area in Berkshire. Their dedication to getting me trained and making sure that I wasn’t just running any movement class but an Active Creative class was impressive. The Dinky Dancers and Boogaloo Boogie programmes are very special and I am proud to be building my business with a company who work hard to make sure their classes are always the best in terms of lesson content and who believe customer care always comes first.. I am a very happy franchise owner!“ Sharon (franchisee)

What do we look for in a franchisee?

A potential franchisee must enjoy working with children and have the ability to relate to parents.

In addition there are qualities that make franchisees into ‘Active Creative’ franchisees:

  • Knowledge of movement in some form i.e. dance, gymnastics, P.E or sport
  • Energy, enthusiasm & confidence- we enjoy our jobs and give 100%
  • Good interpersonal skills – talking, explaining and being friendly are all part of running an Active Creative franchise
  • Determination and self-motivation – An Active Creative franchise can be financially very rewarding and provide a wonderful sense of job satisfaction - we expect a lot but you’ll get a lot too!
  • Business minded
  • Good level of health & fitness

Our current franchisees are from all sorts of backgrounds!

Typically, our franchisees are mothers who have experience of young children. Having said this, applicants who can multi–task, think on their feet and hop and jump - all at the same time would also be most welcome!

Applicants do not need to have had any movement or music training, but ideally should have a background in physical activity in some form. Our current franchisees and teachers started in life as dancers, gymnasts, P.E teachers, primary school teachers, aerobics instructors, nannies, musicians, office managers and nursery nurses.

Active Creative franchisees are bright, enthusiastic, energetic, well organised and have good presentation skills.

Any experience in business/advertising or administration also helps but is not a pre-requisite.

The questions you must ask yourself above and beyond any experience or formal qualifications are:

Do you have confidence, enthusiasm and interpersonal skills – Active Creative Ltd is a customer service business, are you friendly and a good communicator?

Are you self-motivated and committed to build the business and maintain the high standards of the programme? Are you business-minded – can you identify and resolve difficulties, organise, plan and make decisions?

If you answered yes to these questions then why not find out more?

“I started off life as a Gymnastics coach, filled in as a Dinky Dancers’ teacher for Lorry’s 4th Maternity leave and then afterwards launched my own Franchise. I now have two children of my own and yes you can have it all. I love the product, the quality of lessons and the ongoing support I have received over the last five years.” Litsa (franchisee)

Affordable Franchise Offer!

Active Creative Ltd offers two levels of Franchising so that no matter what your financial, starting point, time restraints and family commitments, there is a level that will meet your individual needs.

Whilst we encourage all our franchisees to build their business and reach personal potential, we know that each person is an individual and therefore each Active Creative Franchisee will have a specially tailored business plan which will suit their own circumstances.

“I decided to start with a Kings level Franchise, so that I could open a good number of classes straight away with the option of opening more as my income grew. I can manage all my classes myself at the moment but will start looking to build my own team very soon so that I can open more classes in my territory.” Lisa (Medway Towns, Kent)

“I own an Ace level Franchise, which is the top level. I have been franchising with Dinky Dancers for 2 and a half years and have already trained five new class leaders who teach brilliant classes for me! I also have Lysette who helps me with class enquiries, bookings and general administration. I love working flexibly from home, building a great business. It means I can be a mum, an entrepreneur and lead a team all at the same time”. Sharon (Berkshire)
