I love Stagecoach Walsall because it has helped my 7 year old daughter to grow in confidence. The teachers are fantastic and really work on building up self esteem in all the children by working on all their strengths. All the children get a part in any shows and no one is left out. My daughter has made so many great friends. Thank you Stagecoach.


Stagecoach Walsall students have been invited to perform at Disneyland Paris in Summer 2019! Students will perform in the Disney Parade, and take part in a workshop with the Disney cast in this 3-night 4-day magical adventure.


Teenagers with a flair for performing can take their singing, dancing & acting to a higher level in our 3 hour weekly classes. Through in-depth training and master classes, teenagers 14+ are encouraged to hone their performance skills, working as a small theater company. We welcome new students who have experience in singing, dancing and acting.


In our singing classes, children learn new songs and find out about rhythm, timing and how sounds are formed. Our dancing classes give kids the confidence to try new dance moves, while our drama sessions allow budding young actors to role play and practise improvisation and storytelling.


Students learn different rhythms, tempos, singing styles and vocal techniques in our singing lessons, while dancing classes feature pop, street and musical theatre routines. In acting classes, children enjoy working on role play, improvisation and performance. ENROL 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)

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.

Laura holds a BA HONS Dance and Theatre Arts Degree awarded from the University of Birmingham, and has a range of experiences and knowledge within the performing arts having worked in the industry for the past 18 years. 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. She is very proud of the work we deliver and knows that it is embedded in exploration, creativity and discovery in a safe environment.
