Singer Stage School

Singer Stage School was launched in November 2001, following a sold-out summer school in 2000.

In January 2007 Singer Stage School  based in Leigh on Sea, Essex became a part-time (semi vocational) training school. The school operates Tuesday & Wednesday early evening till late and all day Saturday.

We are one of the leading and most respected training establishments in the UK. Our client list says it all – so you don’t have to take our word for it! We take our training very seriously.

Don't just take our word for it...

Our classes.

We have a wide range of classes hosted by both our resident and guest tutors to teach Singing, Dance and Drama. Our core classes take place on Saturdays with additional classes during the week.

In order to give our students the best and most versatile training, we have a different guest choreographer/dancer each week to teach Commercial/Street Dance, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Dance Hall, Waacking, Jazz, Locking, Commercial, House, Break dance and Lyrical/Contemporary.

Our guest teachers have a wide range of credits such as West End artistes from top shows such as Hamilton, Thriller, Legally Blonde, Shrek, Grease as well as those who have performed with One Direction, Little Mix, Justin Bieber, Jessie J, Janet Jackson, Rihanna and many more - Our list is endless!

Our acting classes are taught by a panel of industry professional and are exclusive to Singer Stage School.

Topics covered include Screen Acting Coaching, Audition Technique, Screen Acting, Understanding characters, Scripts Work, Voiceover, Presenting, Comedy, Intimacy and Improvisation.

We also regularly have Casting Directors lead workshops to look for new talent and give the students an insight into what a casting director would look for.

We have 2 vocal coaches at the school alongside some special guests and master classes for Singing.

The main genre covered is Musical Theatre but we also cover Pop, Audition preparation for West End shows/College auditions and Harmony Work.

Acrobatics teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline & concentration.

This class will focus on fundamental acrobatic technique and students will learn a variety of techniques such as handstands, cartwheels, bridges, walkovers, balance and contortion tricks and eventually progressing to more advanced tumbling including Aerials (no handed cartwheels) and back handsprings. This class is great for students looking to enhance their agility, flexibility, & strength. Working on flexibility and strength in Acro will help all other areas of dance, particularly Ballet and Jazz.

Jazz will focus strongly on technique working on turns/pirouettes, leaps kicks and jumps. The class will also include routines of different styles including lyrical and musical theatre. This class is essential for students wanting a career in Musical Theatre or Commercial/Contemporary dance.

Several technical dance styles are based on Ballet therefore it is hugely important for any children looking to work in Musical Theatre and any students wanting to move on to performing arts colleges to study Musical Theatre, Commercial/Street or Contemporary Dance.

Ballet is great for posture, co-ordination, musicality, strength, flexibility and balance. It can really benefit children not only within dance but sports such as gymnastics and football. We supply I.S.T.D. Ballet training at the school starting with Primary Ballet right up to Major exam grades ready for your teaching exams should you wish to take them once you graduate from the school. 

Tap is great skill to have for all dancers. It is the most effective style to help rhythm and musicality and is needed for Musical Theatre and sometimes commercial dance. Our classes are not based on an exam syllabus so we can get through the work quicker and make sure they are fully prepared for any Performing Arts college.

Commercial is a class for students to work on style, musicality, dynamics, performance and picking up choreography. Classes will cover dancing in heels too, for girls to prepare for commercial auditions when they attend college and graduate from us. As choreography will be more mature we recommend students are at least 12 years to attend (the class is mainly aimed at 15+ year olds).
