Franchise "Russian Ballet" - the International Chain of Choreographic Schools

Description of the international choreographic schools chain "Russian Ballet" franchise.


Young parents in the 21st century are worried about their kids spending too much time on computers, tablets, and smartphones, which leads to bad health, a weakened immune system, asociality, and closed-mindedness. Trying to prevent the consequences, parents are looking for ways to engage their kids in different hobbies and activities.

Choreographic school "Russian Ballet" is one of the best choices for the purpose.

Choreography, either a ballet or other dancing style, has a lot of benefits over some other activities for kids. Choreography classes correct posture and develop flexibility, coordination, and plasticity. It provides the opportunity to grow professionally, and kids will learn self-organization and concentration at class. Regular activities with peers make children sociable. Besides, it is safer for kids to be under reliable supervision rather than wandering around on their own.

Business model

Monetization:

  • Selling subscriptions
  • Selling branded equipment and inventory
  • Selling tours (summer dance camps for kids)

Expenses:

  • Inventory
  • Hall rental
  • Choreographers’ salaries
  • Advertising

An average payback period is 3 months. There were cases when after the first free trial lesson 30 subscriptions for 200 USD were sold that covered lump sum expenses (5'000 USD).

How to calculate payback?

Girls who are 3 to 7-years-old make up 4% of the total population.
For example, if your city has a population of 500'000 people, then there’s approx. 20'000 girls of this age.
To reach payback, you need to enroll just 15 children. It is easily calculated: Profit = (subscription price * number of children) - (rental+ choreographers` wages + taxes + royalties).

The average subscription price is 200 USD per month. Thus, you earn 3000 USD a month from payments for 15 children. The average rental is 40 USD for a class. There are 8 classes per month, so, you have to pay 320 USD rental. You need 2 choreographers to teach 15 kids. A choreographer's wages is about 40 USD per class (the sum of average salaries of a choreographer and an assistant). That is minus 640 USD from your profit. Minus 320 USD hall rental and choreographers’ salaries. 250 USD is paid as royalties, so you have 1'790 USD left to pay taxes and other expenses.

There’s approx. 25 children who enroll when the school opens, 50 - 80% of them buy subscriptions. That means you can receive the payback right after opening. Some groups of 15 children can be trained simultaneously in a standard dance hall. If 60 children are enrolled, about only 30 - 40 people will attend a class as there is a tendency for kids of 3-6 years to miss classes. Still, you receive payments for a month in advance, therefore, you have the optimal number of kids at a class and 60 parents pay for it.

* According to our statistics, 50 - 80% of customers buy subscriptions after a trial lesson. When the school is already running, the conversion improves: 70 - 95% of the number of those kids who have visited a trial class will acquire subscriptions.

After reaching payback, the profitability of a school is 5'000 - 7'000 a month.
