⭐️ Tell us a bit about you and your business?

I’ve been running Stagecoach Performing Arts Epsom for 6 years this July. I’ve loved every minute of building up the business but mostly seeing over 600 children from 4-19 come through our doors every week! Some of those have had incredible careers on stage or in TV and film, but most rewarding is seeing students who have just become the most amazing confident people. I know whatever they do in life they have had great training and learnt many life skills!

⭐️ What’s changed for your business since the outbreak of Covid-19?

Sadly we cannot run our classes in our normal venues due to social distancing. However we have loved spending the last three weeks creating incredible online content to keep our classes going even whilst we are at home.

Our new classes are called #stagecoachathome which are weekly live classes full of singing, dancing and acting with our amazing team. Plus we have many great west end professionals on board who are offering Masterclasses alongside our weekly live classes online.

⭐️ What are you looking forward to when lock down is over?

Seeing all our amazing students and team back in action, and seeing all our wonderful parents again as we miss seeing them all.

⭐️ Lastly what’s your positive message to help others through this?

Stay safe and indoors because there are so many fantastic online classes available to keep children and teens occupied.

Use this nice quiet time to reflect and rest as we will be back to crazy in no time. I’m definitely enjoying my time with my family.
