Razzamataz was created with a simple dream, to make performing arts available to all young people no matter their background or circumstances. Razzamataz want to give children everywhere the chance to attend classes taught by experienced performers, who can give them the perfect introduction to the most wonderful industry in the world!
To do this, Razzamataz have ensured classes are affordable, their curriculum is fun and current, and attending their classes is made as easy as possible. Over the years they have created a business system that helps keep costs down and class numbers up, bringing their classes to towns and villages as well as the larger cities.
Razzamataz gives the finest talent across the country the opportunity to own and manage a successful Performing Arts Business whilst following a tried and tested system.
It also means their franchisees can set up their school on their own doorstep, and bring their passion, talent and commitment to the young people of the local area.

You will run classes for children aged 4-18* in singing, dance and drama and be engaged in all the varied activities of successfully managing your school. (*With options to expand to 2-18 as your business develops)
Activities involve marketing your schools, recruiting teachers, dealing with customers, and maintaining your accounts.
All areas of running the business are supported by their simple, effective systems and Head Office or your Support Team member are only ever a phone call or email away to offer advice and guidance.
No. It is possible to run a thriving business without experience in performing arts.
Razzamataz do look for candidates with enthusiasm and interest in performing arts but experience is not necessary.

Razz Early Years is made up of 3 different classes for 3 different age groups:
Tiny Tots has been developed to inspire little ones from 6 months to walking to see the world through imagination, senses, play & performing arts.
The Tiny Tots class structure features a mix of “Time to bond” and “Time to share”, allowing for more one to one time between parent and child, with the teachers delivery focussing on guiding the parents in working directly with their children.
Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances.
Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. That’s why Razzamataz has designed Razz Tots for children walking up to 3 years, an exciting journey through the jungle, to space, under the sea and much more! Razzamataz hope to aid parents to ensure that their children can develop and achieve their full potential in a safe and enabling environment.
Razz Minis offers a fun yet informative introduction to the world of performing arts for 4 and 6 year olds. At this age, children enjoy music and movement in such a natural way it’s a great time for them to begin to explore the world of song, dance and drama.
Each Razz Minis class and consists of singing, drama and dance. With no pressure to perform, parents are invited in to celebrate the progress their child has made.
All can be run in a village hall or small leisure centre sports room. You can run this business 100% by yourself or choose to employ someone to teach the classes for you while you concentrate on promotion and admin tasks.
Not only was the Razzamataz brand famously backed by Duncan Bannatyne on Dragons’ Den, but it enjoys an array of multiple door opening strategic partnerships including Euro Camp, Universal Pictures, The Stage Newspaper and Top Talent Agency.
It will come as no surprise that you must love working with kids and have the personality to get on well with their parents and carers, as they will all be joining in, or at least attending the classes.
This opportunity has huge appeal for dancers and performers, but it's not strictly necessary provided you have the energy and commitment.
