stagecoach performing arts
Stagecoach Performing Arts teach children and teenagers how to sing, dance and act, not only to perform on stage but also, more importantly, to perform better in life. Suitable for a range of abilities, Stagecoach offers the chance for young people to pursue a career in the performing arts or simply learn some new skills to share with family and friends.
We are very excited that Stagecoach are opening a new school at Fern Hill, run by Ali and Paul Manuel, who opened the doors of Stagecoach Performing Arts Kingston and Surbiton in 2008 for children aged 4-18 in the local community.
Weekly classes are held on a Saturday morning during term time: Early Stage classes are available for children aged 4 to 6 and Main Stage classes take place for 6 to 18 year olds. Classes will start on Saturday 27th April and run through to 13th July.
To launch the new school, Stagecoach are holding a Discovery Day on Saturday 6th April from 10.00 – 11.00 am – all are welcome!
A two week trial is available. Stagecoach offer a sibling discount and also accept childcare vouchers.
