Stagecoach Andover

Welcome to Stagecoach Andover 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 Andover, stretching young imaginations and building confidence.

Performing Arts and Education has always been a fundamental part of my life. From being a student of a theatre school, to teaching various ages and abilities. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience which include over nine years teaching all three disciplines in theatre schools. I achieved a BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts at college and I graduated from Bath Spa University in 2011 with a BA (Hons) degree in Performing Arts. I have performed various productions including, and Nights at the Circus. A career highlight includes performing West Side Story at the famous Minnack Theatre in Cornwall.

Weekly Classes

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)
