Early Stages
Our Early Stages classes are for children aged 4 to 6 and the children learn new skills in dance, drama and singing, and make new friends. Did you know that research shows  that children and young people who regularly engage in performing arts become more confident and competent learners and...

- feel more confident in their communication
- are better at solving problems
- are more innovative and entrepreneurial
- spend less time in front of a TV or a computer
- are more likely to be a central character in the classroom and enjoy school.

And they thought they were just having fun!

Did you know the Stagecoach Newmarket offers students the chance to take ‘LAMDA’ exams? Students work with our specialist coach Beau Roberts to prepare their pieces and then perform in front of an examiner. These exams are a fantastic way to improve children’s confidence as well as expanding their skill set.  Lamda`s recognised qualifications are included in the current UCAS Tariff when making applications to higher education courses in the UK.

Stagecoach Acting, Singing and Dance Classes & Times

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!

Please use the online payment for existing students or, a new student whose place has been confirmed by the local principal.
At Stagecoach Newmarket performing arts school we believe in the potential of every child and many of the skills we teach are transferable. Singing and dance classes improve children`s numeracy skills through visualising rhythm and number patters. In drama classes, students develop leadership and communication skills through learning as part of a team.  Our dance classes also make movement fun!

At Stagecoach Newmarket in our dance classes  we do jazz dance, hip-hop, pop, street dance and work on technique, strength and performance skills. Drama classes involve skills and confidence building techniques through improvisation and devising and children also learn to work from scripts. In our singing lessons, we learn a wide variety of songs in solo, two-part and three-part harmony. We work on audition techniques and presentation skills all of which are skills for life

In addition to the performance opportunities we provide in theatres, our students  also perform  a demonstration of class work once a year for parents, where they can see a snapshot of the warm ups, exercises and fun routines the children do in class and parents can see their child`s progress.
