Step into the spotlight with our engaging Main Stage programme tailored for students aged 7 to 14! Whether you're a budding star or new to the stage, this immersive 3-hour class caters to all levels of ability.
Divided into three, age-appropriate, stages, students rotate through their classes each week taught by passionate, experienced teachers excited to share their love of the arts!  Students spend an hour honing their vocal talents, another perfecting dance moves and technique, and a third diving deep into dramatic expression. This dynamic trifecta not only prepares you for dazzling performances but also boosts confidence in the classroom, sharpens public speaking prowess, and so much more to nurture lifelong creative courage. Each session is crafted to ignite creativity and build essential skills that go beyond the spotlight.

We nurture the shy and apprehensive, until they find their feet and voice, while at the same time developing and channelling those with bundles of talent, confidence and energy. We believe in the potential of every child!  Join us and embrace your Creative Courage for Life!


Meet The Team

Principal - Cadence Allen Crawley

Hello! I am so thrilled to be the principal and owner of both Stagecoach Hamilton East and Stagecoach Toronto East. I opened my first Toronto East school in 2012, and have been loving every minute of it! I’m so excited to now be bringing Stagecoach to the community where I live.

My own creative background begins with acting training and has grown to include on-camera roles, theatre acting, directing, and producing credits.  I have a BA in Theatre Studies from Acadia University in Nova Scotia, and studied Meisner Technique at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City. Long before that training though, way back to my pre-teen years, I spent hours and hours in rehearsals, classes and theatre workshops. I created amazing memories, gained invaluable life skills, and made lots of friends, many of whom are still in my life today.

In addition to my professional credits, the other major adventure in my life is motherhood.  My husband-- also a professional performer-- and I have always believed strongly that an arts education is invaluable to the development of a young mind, whether it’s what you choose as your career path or not.  Having two inspiring, curious and creative wee boys in our lives now does nothing but reinforce the idea.

Going to summer drama camps and after-school & weekend rehearsals were the among the best times of my young life. Besides being full of fun and friendship, I can look back on those experiences and see how they helped me learn to work hard and work with a team , to overcome a shy period and to become confident being myself.

That’s why it means so much to me to be able to offer that same kind of experience to young people today…  Creative courage for life.
