Stagecoach turns 30!

Come and join our birthday party and help us celebrate 30 amazing years of Stagecoach Performing Arts Schools! We can't give too much more away at the moment, but we can tell you that here at Stagecoach Dorking, on the 1st July 2018, we'll be performing the Disney classic 'Beauty and the Beast', in an exciting, 'history-making' event.

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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

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.

At the age of 10, Sarah competed in the British National Formation Championships coming second. When she completed her training in Ballet, Tap and Modern, Sarah found her true passion was in choreography and Musical Theatre and was lucky enough to perform at prestigious venues such as Her Majesty's Theatre, the London Palladium and Theatre Royal. Sarah has also choreographed for productions both locally and nationally and has also produced various musical theatre shows.
