Whether you would like your child to develop in confidence and social skills, widen their circle of friends or perhaps their destiny is in the performing arts, our dedicated and passionate team are able to recognise individual student potential and help them excel. We set our standards high and our dreams even higher.
Classes for students aged 4 to 18 are held on Saturdays during term time at the well equipped Tubbenden Primary School in Orpington. We look forward to giving you a warm welcome soon.

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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)

Stagecoach Main Stages
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)

Meet The Team

Principal - Felicity Corbould-Dawe PGCE, BA (Hons), HND, ISTD DDE & DDI (Classical Ballet, Tap & Modern)

Felicity gained a scholarship to train at the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts achieving an HND in Musical Theatre followed by a BA (Hons) in Theatre Studies at Arts Ed.  A varied performing career followed including TV work for Nickelodeon, London Fashion Week, cruising Australia and New Zealand and performances at various London theatres. 
Felicity continued her training with teaching qualifications from the ISTD and a PGCE from Greenwich University.  Her extensive qualifications and professional experience gained her responsibility for the BTEC Performing Arts course and a position on the senior management team at Italia Conti (Guildford Branch). Additionally she trained students from ages 3 to 21 and prepared/choreographed material for a host of theatrical productions.
Moving into feature films, Felicity was fortunate to work behind the scenes on a number of big budget movies including Star Wars VII, Christopher Robin and James Bond: No Time to Die. She was Assistant to the lead actor on Solo - A Star Wars Story and Assistant to Director on Disney's Nutcracker and the Four Realms before taking maternity leave.
Felicity is very excited to start her Stagecoach journey and, together with the support of her husband Nathan (Musical Director & Composer), can’t wait to spread the joy of performing arts.
