The show must go on: Stagecoach Loughton takes training online

LONDON: The transfer to digital training is something many businesses couldn’t have anticipated at the start of 2020, but at Stagecoach Performing Arts Loughton, online classes are well and truly underway.

However, the high-quality standard of lessons, usually delivered at Stagecoach Loughton, has not been compromised. Stagecoach Loughton has now transferred from on-stage to online, with just as much student activity and enthusiasm for  instilling Creative Courage for Life®.

The Main Stages students (6-16 year olds) taking part in Stagecoach Loughton’s online classes have been ‘zooming into panto’, whilst the Early Stages (4-6 year olds) have half of their class recorded each week to do in their own time, and come together to show everything they’ve learnt and have fun! The classes take place every Saturday morning, and all new students can have a free Discovery Session to see what all the fuss is about.

Zach Mobley, Principal at Stagecoach Loughton, said
“It’s been an incredible experience and so encouraging to be able to continue our classes. We have worked hard, developing our offering, to ensure that the quality of teaching that Stagecoach students know and love is maintained through structured, engaging and interactive lessons. Times are really tough at the moment and I can observe the positive effect these classes are having on our student’s mental health each week. I’m so proud of everyone involved.

We can’t wait to see everyone again soon when it’s safe, but for now we will keep teaching our classes, which bring valuable skills and lifelong confidence to our students, from a distance.”

In half term (Week commencing 15/02) we have a week of exciting ‘workshops’ each day! For just £40 for the whole week you can learn routines from West-End superstars, become familiar with Hip-Hop, meet a talent agent to understand an audition process and even learn a dance from 2016 Strictly Champion – Joanne Clifton… You may even get to see the Glitterball!

A parent of two children currently taking part in the Zoom classes has said: “Zach, Neil and Charlotte are so passionate about what they do and this really shows in the enthusiasm of the professional sessions they present. My children really enjoy their stagecoach sessions and look forward to Saturdays.”
