Stagecoach Penarth

Hello and welcome to Stagecoach Penarth. We are a performing arts school that offers weekly singing, dancing and drama classes for young people aged 4- 16.
Our performing arts classes are tailored to encourage creativity and individuality. We believe every child should feel safe to express themselves and have the courage to explore how wide their imaginations can stretch. 
Our classes are taught by professional performers with experience and passion for teaching young people performing arts. They create a fun, relaxing atmosphere to help our students have the freedom to learn and share new skills but also develop their existing ones.
It is important to us that we create an environment for our students to build their confidence, to build their self esteem and to acknowledge that their voice is valued as this will benefit them as they grow into confident aspiring young adults.
To see what fun we are getting up to this term, give me a call directly or enrol online today!

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!
