Stagecoach Fleet

A very warm welcome from Stagecoach Fleet. We provide quality part-time training in performing arts for children aged 4-18yrs. We believe in the potential of every child, providing them with the tools to explore, create and communicate, preparing them for whichever stage they choose to step onto. The classes promote both life and technical skills, building confidence and stretching imaginations through singing, acting and dance. Guided by a principal with over 25 years of professional experience and teachers who have all trained and worked as performers, choreographers, directors and producers, rest assured we offer the highest quality teaching for your children.

The Principals, James and Danica, along with a great team of teachers, provide professional, fun and exciting training with lots of opportunities to grow. The staff are dedicated to helping students to use the performing arts to assist in their social and educational development, in the theatre and beyond.  Like the principals, Stagecoach Fleet staff have all worked professionally and have strong links with the performing arts industry. We look forward to meeting you!

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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)

Stagecoach Main Stages
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)

Stagecoach Further Stages
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.
