Children and teens flourish while improving their singing, dancing and drama skills during our weekly Main Stages performing arts classes.
Our Main Stages students are aged six to 18 year-olds (split by age into smaller groups) and class activities vary week by week, meaning no Stagecoach session is the same! Students are encouraged to build and grow their skills as individuals and also work as a team with the rest of their class to create performances that parents/guardians are welcome to watch.
At Main Stages level, our students’ performing arts education covers:
Singing skills such as singing in harmony and composing their own melody lines
Dancing skills such as building a dance sequence and technique and devising own choreography
Acting skills such as developing character and working with scripts, plots and context of a story
Learning how to sing, dance and act is not the only way our students benefit. They also:
Build their confidence
Make new friends
Explore their creativity and expand their imagination
Build key life skills such as communication, reflective thinking skills, teamwork and resilience
Have a look at what our students get up to yourself.
Our classes explore different styles in music and dance, from musical theatre to street dance and invite students to explore the world of drama through role play, improvisation and performance.
That’s not all though, our Main Stages students and parents/guardians also enjoy:
End of term performances that parents/guardians are welcome to watch
Regular reports to keep track of their child’s progress
Awards, medals and certificates to recognise their attendance and to reward our students for their achievements*
Performance opportunities in regional and West End venues as well as benefiting from our exciting partnerships with companies such as Disneyland Paris*
The chance to audition to be a part of our flagship Summer Showcase production (for students aged 9+)
