Stagecoach Eastleigh

Welcome to Stagecoach Eastleigh. We’re celebrating our 22nd year of helping our students experience the joys of drama, dance and singing in a caring and fun environment.  No experience is necessary - enthusiasm is all we ask!  Our students gain confidence and learn commitment and teamwork - skills that we know are critical to their success both in school and in life.  And of course, none of this would be possible without our experienced teachers with their expertise in bringing out the best in students of all ages and abilities.  To experience the magic of Stagecoach, enrol now for a two-week trial and start your child on their Stagecoach journey!

A big thank you to all our parents and students for their help and understanding as we turn Stagecoach into Safecoach (did you see what we did there?) 😂 We had a very successful first weekend back , and it was wonderful to see the enthusiasm and joy in our students faces once again!

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)
