Stagecoach Dartford

In 2002 Liz set up a new Stagecoach school in Dartford; being awarded Best New Franchisee the following year. Three years later she took over the existing Orpington school and both now run at full capacity. Both schools are happy, safe, inclusive places, where students can try new things without fear of failure and where, if they need to, they can address everyday issues in a secure and nurturing environment. Led by a team of qualified and expert professionals, the childrens confidence soars and mutual respect is developed in fun and stimulating lessons. Through the Stagecoach agency several students have appeared on TV in various drama series, ads or as extras. Others take part in touring professional shows, or local amateur productions eg Oliver and Whistle Down the Wind.

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)

Principal - Liz Denbigh - BA Hons in Dance

Liz graduated from the University of Surrey in 1988 with a BA Hons degree in dance. She then went into sales and account management working initially for Mars and then Universal and Paramount films. Following the arrival of her third child Liz decided it was time to give up the commuting and in April 2002 opened the Dartford branch of Stagecoach. The following year she received "franchisee of the year" award and two years after that took over the existing school in Orpington. She has been involved in education for many years in her role as governor and chair of governors of her local primary school and enjoys combining her interest in education with a love of the arts at Stagecoach.
