Stagecoach Battersea and Balham

The children at the Stagecoach School in Battersea enjoy an extraordinary range of performance opportunities! Micky has five children and in addition to Stagecoach heads up The Wonderland Committee which is an organisation committed to raising funds for Children In Crisis. This charity gives London children the chance to perform in support of children less fortunate than themselves. Stagecoach Battersea has performed 'High Tea & Fashion' at the Dorchester Hotel for a children's charity fashion show. They've also done 'All about Matilda' and 'Winter Wonderland' at theatres in London just to mention a few. We have an exceptional working relationship with The Royal Opera House, and Stagecoach Battersea students are ferquently invited to audition for acting roles in productions. We have a thriving school with a big heart and an exceptional understanding of how the performing arts can play a significant role in our children's lives. We are proud to have been selected to perform as part of the BBC Children In Need Choir at the Natural History Museum in September 2022.

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!

(3 hrs each week)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Stagecoach Further Stages
Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.

Holiday Workshops

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

We understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is of the essence. Therefore Stagecoach Parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let us do all the work! Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!
