Welcome to STAGES!
If you've found yourself on this page then its because you want to know more about STAGES, who we are and maybe what we have to offer? well thats great! because we are happy to tell you our back story and let you into our world.
STAGES was created by Amanda Cox, a professional dancer and mum of two who performed on stage and screen for nearly 20 years before turning her passion for performing arts into an opportunity to share her passion with others and teach children and adults.
In 2011 Amanda co-found a dance studio in England which fast became a notable institute. With 4 months the dance school was already building a waiting list and within 9 months the school became a registered, graded institution, meaning children could gain grades in dancing and use those grades to enter into academic performing arts schools across the world.
In 2015, Amanda along with 2 others launched a franchise performing arts academy in England which again went on to huge success, with over 120 students attending a 3-hour workshop every weekend.
In 2019 Amanda moved to Stockholm with her family and found that there was nothing similar for her children to enrol onto that would give them the same fun, warm and well rounded experience that she had created and witnessed back home. spending months trying to find performing arts schools or dance schools that were not rigid and disciplined but instead fun and full of energy. I she did find something it always seemed to be fully booked with a waiting list that had no end in sight!
And so, STAGES was born!!
A 3- hour performing arts workshop set on Saturday mornings in a vibrant, spacious and familiar setting. Not cold or strict but full of warmth and a shared passion for learning news skills in the world of the arts.
STAGES is formed of 3 professional performing arts teachers and 1 assistant, all of whom have experience performing around the world and experience teaching children.
All of the STAGES staff are qualified, insured and criminal records checked which means you know your child is in safe hands when it comes to their leaning environment and the mentors who teach them. We take what we do seriously, but individually we understand the importance of growth, exploration and creativity, which is why we bring the experience, the environment and the openness, and your child brings the enthusiasm and curiosity!
Our first Academy is set to launch exclusively to BISS students in Math 2020 with more opening up in surrounding areas later on in the year.
