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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.

From Choreography, Directing, Performing, Project Managing and even delivering Internetational Arts Exchange trips - Laura has been very fortunate to experience such work.
She remains a successful Dance Artist in Community and Education settings sharing her skills across The West Midlands through an array of projects and organisations whilst also being the Principal of Stagecoach Walsall since April 2014.

She is very proud of the achievements and feels very lucky to work with such wonderful teachers, families and students.

Laura’s ultimate goal is for students to enjoy drama, dance and singing as much as she did when she was their age. Wanting each child to look forward to their classes, as Stagecoach Walsall should be the HIGHLIGHT of their week.
