Who are Boogie Bear?

About Boogie Bear Music & Drama

Boogie Bear Music & Drama is a limited company and was established in 2006 by Christine Charalambous. Christine is a mother of two beautiful children Gabrielle & Christian.

After working as a nursery manager for ten years, decided to create her own music & drama classes and created a company called “Dance & Sing” (Dansez et Chantez) which are bilingual classes which focus mainly on the French language. In 2006 our vibrant Boogie Bear was introduced with a new concept of ‘Nurturing children’s emotional well-being” and the company was able to grow and expand to a younger audience with a completely different concept.

Boogie Bear Music & Drama LTD is the successful business model that was created with, passion, devotion and 30 years’ experience in early years. Christine is N.N.E.B & Montessori trained and has also completed an NVQ in assessing, practical language diploma in French, seminar in Drama tots, first aid for children, and has attended an intensive Emotional well-being training programme in New York.

“The classes have been tried and tested and have served hundreds of children who hold memorable and happy experiences. The classes have been extremely successful in London and were voted “The best Baby classes of 2018”

The process

You will receive a short form to fill out.

Once the form has been returned you will be invited for an informal meeting for a coffee and will be introduced to the regional franchisor Rodney Hindmarsh and franchisor founder. It is here where you can ask any questions about the Boogie bear classes and how they work.

We will then contact you and invite you for a second meeting. Here we will discuss setting up a 1-1 shadowing in a class with parents and children. It is here where you will watch the franchisor in action and can perform a song of your choice to see if this is for you.

In order to secure your training programme, it is here where a one-off fee of £6,999 is payable in full. This fee allows you to start trading under Boogie Bear music & drama LTD.

Once you are well established, ten percent of your earnings is payable at the end of each month to Boogie bear music & drama LTD

Contracts will be signed and your new exciting journey with Boogie Bear music & drama LTD will begin.

Potential earnings

Your income will depend on how many classes you would like to run. Would you like to work term time only? (38 weeks) Or all year round? (52 weeks)

IIt will depend on your family circumstances and how you like to work. It is entirely up to you.

Building up classes takes time, once you build up a good relationship with parents your classes will begin to flourish.

Our fees are set at £7.00 per child per class. Parents are required to pay for a block of 4 weeks minimum. All these details will be on your Boogie bear webpage and discussed on the training seminar.

Through my 30 years of teaching I do find that obtaining a regular weekly slot in an educational establishment i.e. Nursery school brings a guaranteed income every term or month. You will need to be a bit more flexible with fees as nurseries normally like to have a fixed group fee. Educational establishments work within a certain budget, therefor a small reduction in fees in normally required.

Running a private class is extremely beneficial too as it is more of a social gathering with carers and children and bonds carers with children. Once established you can grow your classes and increase your income. Regular advertising is needed in order to achieve a successful & full class. A small room fee will be required for hiring a space. Tea rooms and coffee shops do not always ask for a rental fee.

with your big smile and positive energy, the moment you enter the nursery the children are instantly memorised by you. It’s so great to see how much they all enjoy The Boogie Bear sessions and how enthusiastic they are throughout all of the songs.
