At Stagecoach we teach children and teenagers how to sing, dance and act, not only to perform on stage and beyond, but more importantly to perform better in life.

For almost 25 years our drama academy & musical theatre classes have seen young people gain confidence, stretch themselves, and build essential life skills. Not only do we teach the tools to sing, dance and act, but most importantly to have fun as well!

Suitable for ALL abilities, Stagecoach offers the chance for kids to pursue a career in the arts or simply just to learn some new skills to share with friends and family.

Quality Training in a Safe Environment - Dance, Drama, Stage and More


Stagecoach isn't just for performers, it's also for young people who simply enjoy learning to act, sing and dance. We pride ourselves on developing skills for life.

Stagecoach is for young people aged between four and eighteen years. Our schools operate for three hours each week during term-time, either after school or at weekends. Split into three groups by age, students gain confidence, self-esteem and learn to express themselves creatively. These benefits, acquired while learning the skills of performance (in our dedicated singing, dance and drama classes) don't disappear when the children come off stage.

All our classes are run by professional teachers who are passionate about what they do.

The Stagecoach ethos is to enable children to grow gradually, and at their own speed, and to accomplish their personal full potential. Some might gain the confidence to strive harder for their ambitions. Some might want to work in the performing arts. Whatever their dream, our caring and talented staff make sure they keep their feet firmly on the ground.

The curriculum is broad to enable students to experience a wide range of styles and skills.

In drama academy, young people will explore their creativity through improvisation and role play, improving vocabulary, social awareness and communication skills.

We offer two strong areas of musical theatre-themed classes and workshops.

The singing class will introduce students to different rhythms and tempos in music allowing them to challenge themselves with a wide range of songs while improving technique, numeracy skills and vocal ability.

Fun is an essential element and Stagecoach has learned one truth over many years: children love to achieve and flourish in a disciplined, trusting environment. At Stagecoach we don't set out to create fun, the students do that for themselves.

Stagecoach has set the highest standards and maintain them with the support of a worldwide network of schools.

Stagecoach - gain confidence, stretch imagination, learn skills - and HAVE FUN.

The acting, singing and dancing lessons we provide are suitable for kids of all ages ranging from younger children and toddlers right the way through to teenagers. With performance arts classes including dance classes available throughout the UK you will be able to find a dance school catering for toddlers (4 and over) kids (from 4-12) and teenagers (13-18) near to you.

Our stage schools offer term time, part-time and holiday camps and workshops ideal for young adults, school leavers, kids and toddlers who are keen to take on a drama course near to their home.
