Singing, Dance & Drama Classes For Children & Teenagers – Stagecoach Weybridge
At Stagecoach Weybridge, we teach children and teenagers how to sing, dance and act, not only to perform on stage and beyond, but more importantly to perform better in life.
For 25 years we have seen young people gain confidence, stretch themselves, and build essential life skills while learning the tools to sing, dance and act and most importantly have fun!
Classes For All Abilities
Suitable for ALL abilities, Stagecoach offers the chance for kids to pursue a career in the arts or simply just to learn some new skills to share with friends and family.
When & Where Are Stagecoach Classes?
Singing, Dance & Drama Classes are based at Whiteley Village, Weybridge (off Burwood Road) and we hold sessions on Saturday mornings during term time.
Stagecoach Early Stages
For Children aged 4-6: Children are never too young to start gaining skills for life.
Early Stages is the ideal introduction to Stagecoach theatre schools; singing and acting, dancing, drama and much more.
Suitable for young children between the ages of 4 and 6, our stage school classes for young children enhance learning, encourage development and inspire creativity especially within performance arts.
Class sizes are kept small (maximum 15) so there’s plenty of scope for children to stretch their imagination and make lots of new friends!
Just like students in the main Stagecoach stage schools, Early Stages children learn performing arts skills for life that work to build their confidence ranging from dance classes and drama lessons to musical theatre, drama and more.
The weekly classes run for 90 minutes each, split into three 30 minute sessions:
They also improve their diction and, through this, investigate how sounds are made and formed.
In Early Stages, children can find new ways to express themselves as they experiment with words, actions and feelings in a number of our stage schools in the UK.
Learning new phrases as they memorise lines through repetition increases their vocabulary, and drama also teaches them valuable social skills through interaction – including giving, taking and sharing.
Stagecoach main schools run alongside Early Stages classes, so when a child is ready it’s a natural progression for them to move up to the longer classes.
Depending on individual circumstances, this will usually happen when a child is 6 years old, and ready to transfer to the next stage.
Stagecoach Main Theatre School
For Children and Teenagers 6-18: Gain confidence, stretch imagination, learn skills and HAVE FUN!
Stagecoach’s experienced and professional teachers are all DBS checked (formerly known as CRB), and many of them are currently working in the profession.
The classes they run provide a broad curriculum and Stagecoach schools students are introduced to a wide variety of performance skills and styles.
Dance Workshops and Classes
The energetic dance workshops and classes offer more than just physical exercise.
At the same time as learning popular routines (everything from pop and street dance to musical theatre) students make great improvements to their technique and co-ordination.
Our Drama classes give students the opportunity to explore their creativity and stretch their imaginations. As well as being hugely enjoyable, the role play, improvisation and performance texts that we use are invaluable tools for improving communication and boosting social awareness skills.
Singing Lessons and Classes
In singing lessons and classes a wide range of songs introduce students to different rhythms and tempos, as they work to improve their technique and vocal ability.
Previous singing experience isn’t essential, and natural ability counts just as much as the students being able to rise to new challenges.
“Hi Mike I’ve been meaning to thank you (and Stagecoach in general) for everything that you have done for Mark.
It has made a real difference to his confidence, especially when he was young.
He now is in the Musical Society and Stage Tech Societies at university. It’s helped his social skills no end and I can’t thank you enough.”Mrs W
