We often hear from visitors that Stagecoach Peterborough is a happy, motivated Performing Arts school. All students are welcomed, regardless of past experience and everyone is encouraged to participate in the endless performance opportunities that we offer on a termly basis. We strive to give the very best learning experience in Drama, Dance and Singing that is available. Our teaching team is fully committed to getting the best out of every single child.
Each child receives weekly tuition in performing arts using Drama, Dance and Singing. The main aim of the classes is to encourage students to think creatively, develop their confidence and above all, have lots of fun. Parents comment on how Stagecoach has a positive impact on focus, behaviour and motivation outside of our classes.
We cover a wide variety of dance styles including but not limited to Jazz, Modern, Street Dance, Ballet, Commercial and Lyrical. In Drama, our curriculum includes Improvisation, Comedy, Physical Theatre and Script Work to name but a few. In Singing classes, children can expect to cover a wide range of repertoire from Musical Theatre, Pop, Folk, Jazz and even Opera!
These are an integral part of the Stagecoach training. All students participate in an annual show at our schools with costumes, lighting and microphones in our very own, beautiful theatre! This is often the highlight of the Stagecoach Peterborough calendar.
We also take groups to perform at large scale theatres across the country. This year we have performed at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London, at The Cresset Theatre in Peterborough and we have recently been to the NEC in Birmingham to sing with the 'Make a Wish Foundation' charity, The Apex in Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Bedford to dance with the Red Cross.
We are also approached by professional touring productions and provide children for various plays and pantomimes, most recently with Brian Conley. We provide the local professional pantomime companies with confident, self aware and skilled young actors. One of our students recently premiered an advert at The Cannes Film Festival.
