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)

Principal - Carris Donaldson

Carris has always had creative flair. After completing an Art and Design course at college she went left field and began a successful career in hospitality, winning many awards. She moved up through the management ladder but decided this year that it was time to leave the industry and follow her heart and return to education. Carris was ready to begin a teacher education degree at university when the amazing opportunity to become a Stagecoach Franchisee arose. It was the perfect blend- the chance to provide children with great skills and exciting opportunities but within a highly creative atmosphere.
Carris has spent many years helping at Stagecoach Edinburgh and has always loved the lively atmosphere and inspirational teaching. She is excited to be taking on the role of Principal and Franchisee of Stagecoach Stirling and looks forward to the challenge of continuing the success of the school and making it a strong, creative and nurturing environment for children and young people.
