Stagecoach Melton Mowbray

At Stagecoach Melton, we pride ourselves on the quality of teaching that we provide across all three Performing Arts but with the emphasis on having fun! Students who come to us lacking in confidence leave with the skills that they need to lead full and valuable lives. Parents have written to thank us for developing skills in their children which have meant that their academic standard has improved, and that they have found the courage to do something which they would never have done before.  students who leave us, often after many years, thank us for guiding and helping them in a nonthreatening environment, where they feel loved, valued and welcomed every week, giving them a new ‘family’ of friends outside their usual school friends.

Some of our students go on to study performing arts at university but most just take with them a love of singing, dance and drama into whatever career path they choose. Jo runs Stagecoach Melton and also teaches at Stagecoach Loughborough. She has also completed her NVQ in Sales and Marketing and loves keeping busy so she also helps her husband with his private hire taxi business and she has her own Health & Well Being business with Forever Living. For me she says; Stagecoach is all about giving children confidence and allowing them to have fun. Seeing a child blossom into something they want to be is the best reward ever. Stagecoach Melton Mowbray has performed 'Time Lord' and 'Pantomime'.

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)
