Summer Of Fun For National Franchise Network
April 29, 2021 // Franchising.com // UK - A national theatre school franchise is making plans to get kids active and build back lost confidence and social skills with fun summer schools throughout the UK. It’s been a long and difficult year for children and their parents with normal routines disturbed, so it’s exciting to be able to look to the future once again.
Razzamataz Theatre Schools is a national performing arts school network offering exceptional quality training in dance, singing and drama. Children from the ages of 2-18 benefit from the part-time classes, especially in terms of health and wellbeing.
In keeping with current safety guidelines, there will be limited class sizes but with a very strong emphasis on getting kids active, after a long time with limited PE and sports classes.
“Children have lost out on vital social interactions and the chance to have fun with their peers,” says Denise Hutton-Gosney, MD and Founder of Razzamataz Theatre Schools. “We are a network of small, local businesses and our Principals are very integrated in their local communities and understand what the particular needs are. We have spoken to thousands of parents who are desperate for their children to get back to doing all the things that they love, but in a safe and sensible way.”
After the various lockdowns, Razzamataz have looked at the best ways in which they can serve their communities. Summer schools have always been popular but this year, interest is even higher after so many missed opportunities.
“Many parents feel like their children have only just got back into a routine and want to keep this up over the summer, especially with the uncertainty surrounding holiday plans,” adds Denise. “We also recognise that it has been extremely difficult for working parents trying to juggle everything and the guilt that often comes with it. Children who come to our summer schools will be keeping fit and active, have the opportunity to learn new skills, will be learning to build on their confidence and most importantly, will be having fun.”
During the summer schools, children and their teachers will work on various songs, dances and drama pieces, together with learning about theatre skills in general. Being given the chance to perform is paramount to building a child’s confidence which is why each and every child will get their chance to shine.
“We are very aware that all children have missed out on speaking and communication skills that would normally happen during school in classes where they would be asked to read aloud or discuss their ideas,” adds Denise. “This has led to a drop in confidence for many so much of the work will be looking at how we can help children feel less self-conscious and simple ways in which they can engage with others.”
