Stagecoach Altrincham

Welcome to Stagecoach Altrincham where we provide quality part-time performing arts training for children and teenagers aged 4-18yrs. Our aim is to nurture and develop young potential through singing, acting and dance classes in Altrincham, stretching young imaginations and building confidence.

Your child will participate in the three disciplines of the performing arts in a weekly three hour session. Children are split into three groups of similar ages and study each discipline for one hour in detail. They are taught to express themselves creatively and effectively whilst learning at their own speed.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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)

Stagecoach Main Stages
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!

Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!
