School Ethos

Centre Stage offers high quality performing arts training within a warm and compassionate teaching environment. It is our goal to enhance student’s understanding of the arts, expand performance ability and increase self confidence through personal development.

The objective of all staff at the school is to provide innovative and creative teaching
without discrimination or favouritism.

Community spirit is at the heart of Centre Stage and this is reflected in the importance we place on students displaying mutual respect and support towards their tutors and each other.

A message from the
Centre Stage Principal

Welcome to Centre Stage School of Performing Arts.

This year Centre Stage celebrates it's 23rd year as an independent Performing Arts School. The staff at Centre Stage continue to extend the same warm welcome to our students and their families as they did on the day we first opened our doors, and we are proud to continue a teaching tradition which has been instrumental in the personal development of so many talented young people.

Every student that joins Centre Stage is an important member of our extended family; a family that, as well as offering exceptional coaching in all aspects of performing arts, also provides support, friendship and the life skills that build confidence and help students grow into well-rounded, self-assured individuals.

No matter how large or small the goal, at Centre Stage we encourage our students to believe in themselves and develop the confidence to pursue their ambitions.

Taught in a supportive, fun and creative environment, the disciplines of acting, singing and dance bring young people together in a vibrant and joyous community to explore the magical world of performance.
