Children aged four to six are introduced to the performing arts through our fabulous range of Early Stages singing, dancing and acting classes.

Our Early Stages students introduce children to the performing arts with a focus on growing their confidence and making friends. Classes are fun and engaging as students explore rhythm, storytelling and role play.
"I love coming to Stagecoach, it's the highlight of my week. Stagecoach has boosted my confidence." - Student, Stagecoach Epsom
At Early Stages level, our students’ performing arts education covers:
  • Singing skills such as pitch matching and singing with confidence and expression
  • Dancing skills such as basic dance steps and how to perform a dance sequence
  • Acting skills such as storytelling, role play and improvisation
Learning how to sing, dance and act is not the only way our students benefit. Students also:
  • Build their confidence
  • Make new friends
  • Find their voice
  • Explore their creativity and imagination
  • Build key life skills such as empathy and teamwork
  • Enjoy fun exercise through dancing and acting

That’s not all though, our Early Stages students and parents/guardians also enjoy:
  • End of term performances that parents/guardians are welcome to watch
  • Early Stages Passports (complete with stickers) so you can track your child’s progress in their classes and see what skills they’ve been building each term*
  • Awards, medals and certificates to recognise their attendance and to reward our students for their achievements*
 *Available at selected schools, please speak to your local school Principal to find out what they offer
Every Stagecoach school operates with an Educational Framework that ensures all of our schools around the world deliver the same high quality performing arts education whilst also being flexible, enabling each school to adapt and personalise their lessons to the needs of their students.
