WELCOME TO STAGE DOOR...
...where we provide a fun, friendly and supportive environment for students to build self-confidence, creativity and resilience while fostering a love for the arts as they grow. We regard the exploration and study of the arts as not only preparation for performance but also as preparation for life.
Our classes and courses give students the opportunity to develop their skills and perform for the public, and with everything from beginner’s programs to university entry level courses, there is something for everyone at Stage Door!
Our children's classes in singing, dancing, acting and musical theatre aim to build confidence and have fun while developing performance techniques. Perfect for beginners or budding thespians
