Our aim is to enable children to gain confidence, creativity and skills for life within our safe and nurturing environment.  Our professional teachers take children on a journey; learning new skills, stretching their imaginations and equipping each individual with creative courage for their future. 
 
The techniques and skills taught within our 3 disciplines of drama, singing and dance are for those wishing to pursue their love for the performing arts and also for those who wish to explore the creative world and build their confidence.

Early Stages

On 8th July 2017 our very talented Early Stages students showed their family and friends what we have been up to this term with a demonstration of class work. The students all did a fantastic job performing their dance, Moana song and drama and also demonstrating lots of the exercises we do to increase our technical ability and performance style!

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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

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.
