From what age does Stagecoach take new students?
Our Early Stages classes are for four years plus. However, if your child will be turning four during term time you may be able to enrol them for the start of that term.
Can I try Stagecoach before committing to a full term?
We currently offer a two week trial at the beginning of each term. You simply pay a small deposit (R300 for Early Stages and R600 for Main Stages) which will be taken out of the term's fees should you decide to stay for the rest of the term.
Occasionally a Stagecoach school will hold a free Open Day, wherein you learn all about what Stagecoach has to offer and may be able to try out the classes.
How much does it cost to attend Stagecoach?
The cost per term for Early Stages is R1,350.00 and for Main Stages it is R2,700.00. Broken down this works out as R90 an hour. When you first join all we ask is that initially you pay a deposit (R300 for Early Stages and R600 for Main Stages). This deposit is then taken out of the rest of the term's fees if you decide to stay for the rest of the term. The remainder of the fees can then be paid in one or two instalments.
How long is a term at Stagecoach?
There are three terms a year and each is 12 weeks long. There is no break from Stagecoach over half term.
When does Stagecoach run?
The days and times of our Stagecoach classes vary from school to school. Our classes are never during school hours, with most schools running over the weekends in the morning and afternoon. Some schools run classes on Fridays and, very occasionally, on Tuesdays and Thursdays also.
How long does Stagecoach run for each week?
Early Stages runs for 90 minutes each week, with 30 minutes dedicated to each discipline, and Main Stages runs for three hours each week, with one hour dedicated to each discipline. There is a break between the second and third classes.
What does my child need to wear to Stagecoach?
Jazz shoes are the only compulsory piece of uniform at Stagecoach. These can be purchased online or through your Stagecoach Principal. We also ask that our students wear a black or yellow t-shirt and black jogging bottoms / dance leggings. Full Stagecoach uniform can be purchased online or through your Stagecoach Principal.
What should we do if we are unable to attend our usual Stagecoach class on week?
If you find that you are unable to attend your usual Stagecoach class one week you must tell your Stagecoach Principal, giving as much notice as possible. We encourage students to attend every week as the schools' are usually working towards an end of term demonstration or production.
How much notice do I have to give should I decide to leave Stagecoach?
You must give half a term's written notice to the Principal of the Stagecoach school your child attends should you decide to leave Stagecoach.
