Throughout my years as a professional ballet dancer, this school was always a dream of mine… In that dream I envisioned a quaint boutique of a ballet school that would provide a creative dance education experience for children, and a place where students would be urged to fully exercise their imaginations as well as their bodies.
Today, I am proud to say that my dream has been realized in each and every one of our Tutu Schools, all independently owned by lovingly chosen directors, and all boasting exceptional teachers and a carefully crafted curriculum.
We never take for granted the significance of our role in introducing children to the beauty and intrinsic magic of ballet, and that – as much as my original dream of Tutu School - remains at the heart of everything we do.
Tutu School is a collection of boutique-style ballet schools that cater specifically to children 18 months to 8 years-old. Our mission is simple: We believe that exposing children at the earliest possible age to creativity, movement, and classical music will only serve them well in whatever they choose to do with their lives, that dancing like swans and Sugar Plum Fairies not only exercises little bodies but also nurtures big imaginations, and that twirling should be a fundamental part of any childhood.
Pretty special, huh? Meet Genevieve Weeks, our founder and CEO, and learn more about what got us where we are today.
Let’s see if we can guess… You have an entrepreneurial spirit, but feel no desire to re-invent the wheel and start building a business model from scratch, right? Perfect! Purchasing a franchise business is ideal for individuals who want to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. Becoming a franchisee balances independence with support, and compliments the freedom of ownership with the security of proven success.
Owning your own Tutu School gives you the unique opportunity to pair a thoughtful mission with an exciting brand, all wrapped up in the sweetest of packages.
