Stagecoach Chichester

Stagecoach Performing Arts School Chichester offers drama classes for children aged 4-18 years. We pride ourselves in offering classes in performing arts with a combination of  acting, singing and dance.

Each term we welcome new students of all ages and abilities. Many children join us with no previous experience and all we ask is that they are enthusiastic, committed and keen to learn. Stagecoach Chichester’s students thrive in an environment where creativity is nurtured and technique and style are developed each week. We teach students to sing, dance and act and watch as they become more confident, poised and self-assured. These skills do not end when the curtain falls, they are skills for life!

A Stagecoach education is very much geared towards confidence building, raising social awareness, having fun and whilst learning all there is to know in order to sing, dance and act to the very best of each individual’s ability. Stagecoach Chichester’s classes are for children aged  4-18 years and are held every weekend on a Saturday, during term time, at Bishop Luffa School in Chichester.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

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)
