Drama, Dance and Singing Classes in Nantwich

Welcome to Stagecoach Nantwich

Performing Arts School for 4-18 years.

Welcome to Stagecoach Nantwich. We provide tuition in dance, drama and singing for children and teenagers aged 4 - 18 years and over the last 12 years have helped thousands of local children reach their full potential. We pride ourselves on offering well organised, fun and stimulating classes delivered by an experienced and highly skilled team of teachers, in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our classes help develop confidence, communication skills and articulation – as well as being educational and fun. Our students have opportunities to perform in local, regional and national theatres, take part in professional tours or take part in films or TV shows.

Our aim is to bring the performing arts in to the lives of all children and show them that anything is possible if you have work hard and reach for the stars.

Students Perform With The Russian State Opera 

Well done to Andrew our Stage 1 student who performed with the highly acclaimed Russian State Opera as part of their national tour. Andrew (pictured here with understudy and younger brother Mathew )played the part of Cio Cio San's son in their new production of Giacomo Puccini’s Madam Butterfly and performed alongside an impressive cast and a large live orchestra. Andrew had been at Stagecoach for just 2 terms when he was offered the part. Amazing!


Well done to our Stage 2 student Amy who performed at the Lyceum Theatre in Crewe alongside a whole host of famous faces in the Talking Scarlet production of Jekyll & Hyde.  Amy played the part of a young girl who was attacked by Mr Hyde and thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the tour.

Stagecoach Acting, Singing and Dance Classes & Times

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Early Stages classes run alongside the main Stagecoach schools, where young people learn skills in each of the three Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama, so it is an easy step when it is time to transfer to the next stage.

(90 minutes each week)

Main Stages (for ages 6-18 yrs)

Main Stages classes are split in three age appropriate groups, where young people learn new skills in each of the complementary Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama. We nurture the shy and apprehensive, until they find their feet and voice, whilst at the same time developing and channelling those with bundles of talent, confidence and energy. We believe in the potential of every child!

(3 hrs each week)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions.
