OUR SCHOOL
Our classes at Stagecoach Nuneaton performing arts school are fully inclusive. Kids are kept thoroughly active and motivated in lessons all the time they are with us. Our students have a great deal of fun, and within all the fun they also develop multi-layers of skills that don’t just apply to Performing Arts. As they learn to use their voices, their bodies and their minds, confidence and self-esteem are enhanced.


OUR TRAINING
IN DANCE: Learning many different dance styles - Modern, Theatre Dance, Hip-Hop, Street Dance, Jazz etc. Mastering controlled movement with balance, poise, rhythm, flow and elegance.

IN SINGING: Learning to sing by developing vocal techniques and methods, expressions, tempos and rhythms in genres from Pop Rock through to Musical Theatre.

IN DRAMA: It’s an exciting journey into acting; stimulating imagination and self-expression; the exploration of characterisation in classic scripts or in improvised adventures. Developing voice control; the study of role emotions and physicality.


PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES
Our terms end with an opportunity to see your child's personal development by way of a group performance. It may be a full blown musical theatre show or, perhaps, a presentation of skills learnt in class. The process teaches them the thrill and importance of working in a team, as well as the focus and concentration needed to memorize their individual parts. From time to time students have the opportunity to perform at prime venues, like the 25th anniversary 'CATS' show at Birmingham NIA recently; concerts at Her Majesty's Theatre and the annual Stagecoach ‘Summer Showcase’ show at The Leatherhead Theatre.

Stagecoach Nuneaton performing arts school coaching sessions take place at Higham Lane School, Shanklin Drive, Nuneaton, CV10 0BJ. The school has ample car parking and we can be found via the entrance at the end of the school drive, opposite the sports hall.
