Stagecoach Ilkley

A very big welcome to Stagecoach Ilkley! Anyone that comes to visit us here agrees that there is a wonderful atmosphere and the schools are buzzing with energy and excitement.  Stagecoach Ilkley provides children with the opportunity to participate in all three performing arts disciplines - drama classes, dance classes and singing classes - helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and lots of fun.

Past students have studied performance at various universities, and SLP college Leeds. Students have performed at EuroDisney, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds Town Hall, and in touring productions at the Grand Theatre, Leeds.

The School regularly enters students for Lamda and Trinity exams and has an excellent track record of Exam success.

To enrol for a two week taster or arrange a visit to the school, call Heather on 01943 817414.

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)
