Stagecoach Main Stages
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!
