Drama, Dance and Singing Classes in Eastbourne

Welcome to Stagecoach Eastbourne

Performing Arts School for 4-18 years.
Welcome to Stagecoach Eastbourne where we provide quality, part-time training in the performing arts for children of 4 to 18 years of age. As well as singing, dance and drama, we aim to teach life skills: physical awareness; confidence, articulation and communication skills. Of course, we also stretch young imaginations in classes not exceeding 17 students. What we do is a lot of fun!

The schools operate for twelve weeks each term and for Holiday Workshops during the year.

Our students, guided by their teachers, are able to audition for professional performance work; our students have been in adverts, on television and hired for voice work as well as performing on stage in shows such as ‘The Fiddler on the Roof’, ‘Finding Neverland : the Musical’, and ‘Priscilla; Queen of the Desert’. One of our Stage 2 boys was recently seen in the film, ‘Mr Holmes’ working alongside Ian McKellen.
