Stagecoach North Devon

Shivani has had the best time teaching drama at Stagecoach North Devon for the past 6 years; Having seen first hand the positive effect Stagecoach brings to young people's lives she can't wait to spread that magic in her new role as Principle. It's been incredible to watch so many students gain confidence, life skills and build lifelong friendships. She is hugely passionate about the theatrical arts and has been directing and performing since early childhood.

She is keen to pass on all that enthusiasm to the next generation of budding performers, and there’s no better place to do that than here at Stagecoach North Devon! 

With fun, creativity and confidence at the centre of all we do, Shivani’s passion for Stagecoach North Devon can be felt by everyone!

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.
