Stagecoach Sydenham

A very warm welcome to Stagecoach Sydenham! We provide quality part-time training in performing arts for children aged 4-18yrs in the Sydenham and surrounding greater Crystal Palace area, since 2003.
Our aim is to nurture and develop young potential through singing, drama and dance classes, stretching young imaginations and helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and fun!
Students perform for friends and family at least twice a year, we regularly participate in the Stagecoach Showcases in London’s West End theatres, and past pupils have gone on to study at drama schools and perform on stage in the West End.

Stagecoach Open

With the recent government announcements regarding tiers for local lockdowns, we would like to reassure parents that Stagecoach can still run in line with government guidance. We have a comprehensive Covid policy and have completed a risk assessment to ensure we are doing everything we can to continue Stagecoach classes in a safe environment.

No half term break

Just a reminder to all parents and students that we open through the half term and don't stop, so we will see you at Stagecoach during the break!

Back to Stagecoach

We return on the 18th of Sept, and we're adhering strictly to all government guidelines with regards to social distancing and hygiene, but please do call and ask for further information if you're unsure. We want every child to feel safe, nurtured, have fun, and believe in themselves.

Enrolments are still open for our Autumn term. There are limited spaces in Friday Main Stages classes (6-18 years) and our Early Stages classes (4-6 years) currently are full, but you can go on our waiting list!.Enrol for a 2 week trial today!

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)
