Training Providers in Swindon (Wiltshire)
St Joseph's College
This is Stagecoach! Down-to-earth quality training for four to eighteen year-olds in the disciplines of dance, drama and singing in a very safe and happy environment. The skills learnt by our Stagecoach students don't disappear when the curtain falls - they are skills for life.
Stagecoach Swindon opened its doors more than ten years ago in April 1999. We now welcome 165 students each week from Swindon and the surrounding villages.
A dedicated team of Principal and teachers enjoy each week working in a stimulating, safe and energetic environment. We encourage creativity, as well as development of skills and this in turn helps the children to grow in confidence. We work on a varied programme over the year to encourage a range of experiences in the performing arts. We invite parents in at the end of every term to see either a costumed performance, devised or scripted, a Demonstration of Classwork, a Talent Show and every two years many parents join in ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â˜Parents Do StagecoachÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™ raising money for charity. We are developing a programme of professional workshops and visits to shows.
"It's the best thing we ever did, sending our daughter to Stagecoach" Mr Nicholls, father of Becca aged 13 years.
Here's what the students say: I love Stagecoach because......
"it's so nice to be here" Zeyna Housami, aged 4 years.
"It builds up my confidence and self-esteem" Grace Danby aged 13 years.
"I've met people that I have a lot in common with and it's really enjoyable" James Wood, aged 14 year
For those students who are keen for more, we have been providing opportunities at SwindonÃƒÂ¢Ã‚Â€Ã‚Â™s Wyvern Theatre in professional productions. In 2009, 2008 and 2004 our choir performed in Bill Kenwright's 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'. Through the Stagecoach Agency, some students have had the opportunity to do professional work, notably as the pink number 3, in Cbeebies 'Numberjacks'. We also have a Performance Troupe and coach students for LAMDA examinations.
