Helen Green hit break-even point before her launch in Sheffield in September of 2012.
Helen is just 23 and can boast a 35k turnover after just four weeks of business. Her drive and determination has also gained her prominent media exposure for her school.
Pure hard work and dedication to my business. I absolutely love what I do and want nothing more than to see my school grow and for the children attending to develop as performing artists and young people.
Make sure you have a passion for what you do because that will fuel you and help you drive your business forward. I often work long days and late nights but seeing my student numbers grow is very rewarding and Saturday classes make it all worthwhile.
To make sure I always stay motivated. Workshops, getting out and about, meeting people etc. I enjoy the admin work and I don’t mind being sat behind a desk but it’s nice to get out of the office and spread the word about Razzamataz!
I did everything in the launch planner provided by Head Office and made sure that I was fully prepared so that the day ran really smoothly.
To continue to grow my school and ensure we always provide excellent tuition and experiences for our students.

It was 10 years ago that I left hairdressing and for anyone thinking that it is too late to change their careers I would say step out of your comfort zone and just do it. I never thought I would be able to and it’s the best thing I have done and wished I’d done it years ago!Pam Dixon, Razzamataz Dumfries
I specifically wanted to go for a franchise, and in particular Razzamataz because of the support from Head Office and other Principals. This is a network of theatre school owners so you are in business for yourself but not by yourself.Alison Beveridge, Razzamataz Durham.
I don’t have a business background so after deciding to retire from professionally performing it was the memories of Razzamataz on Dragons’ Den that set the wheels in motion. I was really inspired by the brand and the business model and because it is a franchise business we receive a lot of help and support from Head Office as well as on-going training so I can make Razzamataz Barnet the success that I believe it can be. In the last 12 months, I have doubled my student numbers in a very competitive market and I have now clear plans on how I would like my business to progress this year.Michael French, Razzamataz Barnet
