Providing Creative Courage for Life to Children Around the World

At Stagecoach Performing Arts, we teach 4-18 year-olds to sing, dance and act; not only to perform on stage but, importantly, to perform better in life.

2018 is our 30th birthday and, over those years, we have seen more than one million young people gain confidence, stretch themselves and build essential life skills. Our fun and engaging classes continue to give students both the structure and freedom to explore and develop and, as our students grow, the individual businesses in our network also grow and flourish.

We have continually refined our franchise model, which is just one reason why 45,000 students flock to Stagecoach each week. Founded in 1988, Stagecoach is a market leader in extracurricular performing arts schools in the UK. We have more than 650 Stagecoach schools in nine countries including Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Gibraltar, Malta, South Africa, Spain and the UK.
