Online Performing Arts Studio Launches with Leading West End Stars
Stagecoach Performing Arts, the UK’s largest extra-curricular performing arts schools, working with a host of West End stars, have launched a brand new website stagecoachathome.com with an ‘Online Learning Studio’ to engage young performers from their homes alongside home schooling.
stagecoachathome will see Stagecoach teachers be joined by acclaimed actor Simon Callow, Phantom of the Opera star, Lily De La Haye and Amy Oxley who has had starring roles in School of Rock, Shrek and Nativity, among others. The content such as masterclasses and top tips videos is produced exclusively for Stagecoach.
The site has been designed to support families in lockdown and provides a safe online community, activity and a creative outlet, essential for mental wellbeing and confidence building.
The Online Learning Studio is a monthly subscription for young people to participate in. For a monthly fee of £19.99, users have access to a selection of full-length 30-minute pre-recorded lessons, as well as exclusive-to-Stagecoach content by performing arts professionals. Further new content covering singing, dancing and acting will be added weekly.
Jo Scalpello, marketing director at Stagecoach Performing Arts, said, “We are very excited about this new launch. It is understandable that students are missing their in-person Stagecoach lessons and we hope that the fantastic selection of online lessons will keep children engaged, active and provide them with continuous learning whilst in lockdown. The team are thrilled to welcome so many notable West End performers to the Stagecoach community; these people are a huge inspiration to our students and teachers. This is an opportunity like no other as budding performers can hone their craft with leading stars of stage and screen. ”
