Halifax mumpreneur and babyballet founder Claire O’Connor has taken the plunge to travel the world for a year with her family to expand the franchise business and introduce the brand to new countries across the globe.

Married to Chris, a sports analyst working in Canada for rugby league team Toronto Wolfpack, Claire joined her husband earlier this month with three of their four children, Charlie, 14, Claudia, 12, and 10-year-old Kitty to begin their 12-month adventure.

Now in Toronto, Claire is actively looking for opportunities to set up franchises in Canada.

Claire said: “The successful expansion of the business into Australia and New Zealand made me realise that if I can do it there, I can do it anywhere in the world. With Chris in Toronto it seemed like the perfect opportunity to join him and look to expand over there, as well as other countries. It’s going to be an adventure of a lifetime.”
