At Stagecoach Lancaster we cater for children who love to dance, sing and act as well as for those who just need to gain a little more confidence. We offer a positive and nurturing environment for creativity and self-expression to flourish. Everyone is welcome.
We are proud to offer a full and rounded education within the performing arts. We emphasise skill development within dance, singing and drama and twice yearly work towards creating memorable and confident performances in front of an audience. We always ensure everyone is part of the team and gets a fair chance to show what they can do.
There is no audition to join, and the lessons are designed to enable children learn new skills whilst having fun. Our classes focus on a rich and wide variety of performance styles.
In singing class, students develop their voices through carefully selected exercises to extend range and technique, and rehearse performance styles varying from pop to musical theatre to folk and jazz.
In drama class, we use actor games to teach specific acting techniques and work on improvised, devised, and scripted pieces covering a wide range of styles including classical, modern, choral, melodrama, puppetry, mask work, comedy and many more.
In dance classes, children learn dance technique to improve position, poise and posture, and rehearse routines in jazz, modern, contemporary, musical theatre, and show styles.
Our training, over time, provides a well-rounded performing arts training, taught by accomplished and experienced teachers who are all DBS checked.
We also offer examinations in both Lamda Acting and Rock School Performing Arts Awards, providing children with the opportunity to work toward their future gaining accredited certificates and potential UCAS points.
Our students give regular performances for friends and families. They also have the opportunity to take part in local events and as part of professional companies such as the Ellen Kent Opera and Ballet International.
Our award winning choir ‘The Lakes Choir’ have also performed at the NIA for the Stagecoach 25th Anniversary CATS production. They have also been part of a Stagecoach Regional Event, performing on stage at the Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre in Newcastle and at the Stagecoach National Choir Festival held at the Birmingham Symphony Hall……Take a look at our ‘Latest News’ section for more exciting events planned for the future!
