Stagecoach Shaftesbury is a private centre for LAMDA examinations and we will be having an LAMDA

Quality Training in a Safe Environment
Often copied but never equalled, Stagecoach offers quality training in the three performing arts disciplines: drama, dance and singing - helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and lots of fun. There is no need to find separate singing, acting and dance classes in Shaftesbury, when Stagecoach offer all three to a high standard under one roof!
All our teachers are DBS (formerly CRB) checked so children and teenagers can work in a safe and protected environment. Fees work out at approx £9 per hour, which offers outstanding value for money for quality performing arts training, small class sizes, exams, medals, performances, magazine subscription, optional representation by The Stagecoach Agency which secures professional work for hundreds of children, and the many other extras that are offered by Stagecoach Shaftesbury.
