Early Stages classes at Stagecoach Leamington 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 for 4 – 6 year olds.
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 for 6 – 18 year olds.
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. For 15+ year olds.
We provide exciting dance choreography, creative drama, voice training in a number of singing styles and a fun environment in which to make new friends. We do two shows a year for family and friends to enjoy, plus Stagecoach Leamington Spa students get to participate in Performance Troupes, regularly performing across Warwickshire and beyond, for no extra cost. Students also enjoy a free subscription ‘Young Performer’ magazine. Our national events are an opportunity to perform on a different scale, whether it be on a West End stage, the NIA, or at one of our local outdoor events such as The Peace Festival. Stagecoach run the largest children’s agency in the country, which students are invited to join each year.
Our Principal and Teachers are very passionate about what the arts in general can do for a young persons confidence, social skills and team building. We have small classes of just 19, where we can work individually with students to get the best of their abilities and more. All teachers are trained in the teaching of performing arts and get to develop their skills with some of the best practitioners in the country. Our passion is to see our children and young adults develop into confident, polite, enthusiastic people with drive and ambition. Our child protection policy makes sure the children are in safe hands; all staff are DBS checked and many are first aiders. We hold a recognised school award with CDET (council for dance education training) and have on the spot inspections each term, of which all are ‘Outstanding.’
