Stagecoach Pontypridd & The Valleys

Stagecoach Pontypridd Theatre Arts School specialise  in acting, singing, dancing and drama lessons for children 4-18 years. We run jazz dance classes, hip-hop classes, pop dance classes, street dance classes whilst working on technique, strength and performance skills. We aim for strong physicality in all dance disciplines as well as an equal balance between the three disciplines of singing, dance, acting and drama. Our drama classes involve many skills and confidence building techniques through improvisation and devising, we also put an importance on looking at texts in a fun but educational way. In our singing lessons our students learn a wide variety of songs in solo, two-part and three-part harmony, they learn how to blend their voices in a group and develop strength and volume for solos. We provide useful advice on auditioning for performing arts establishments, many of our talented teachers have trained in London or teach within these establishments.

Pupils aged 7 - 16 from Stagecoach Merthyr Tydfil and Pontypridd produced this excellent Lion King Medley. This fantastic Musical Theatre piece was another brilliant opportunity available at our schools.
This particular piece was created for a special performance at St David's Hall Cardiff this year.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

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!
