Stagecoach Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket

Stagecoach Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket has been providing quality part-time training in singing, dancing and acting for over 10 years. As part of the UK's largest network of performing arts schools, Stagecoach Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket is more than just a stage school, theatre school or drama school.

I do believe every child holds potential within themselves which, in our very carefully crafted lessons, we are able extract this enormous bundle of talent from each child. Each week in class the children learn to be part of a team, building on their confidence and skills. Their contribution makes a wonderful gift to performing and the stage.

We are proud to offer a full and rounded education, teaching life skills to build confidence and stretch imaginations through singing, acting and dance classes.
