Founded by Felicity Courage, Courage Performers was created nearly 20 years ago.
It started as one performing arts class in Bradford on Avon and now there are three groups in Bradford, two in Corsham and one in Bath.
Felicity's diverse experience includes being a singing and drama teacher at Erlestoke Prison, a Performing Arts and Music lecturer at City of Bath College and Chippenham College, Stagecoach Singing and Drama teacher, solo singer for John Rutter, lead vocalised and pianist for vintage jazz group The 4Nicators and function band The Corporations, performer on national touring musical with Partytime Productions and member and composer for all girl trio ‘The Blues Floozies’. She has three teaching certificates, a Diploma in Singing Performance and a B.A Hons Degree in Performing Arts, so is trained in all three disciplines of Performing Arts.
There is always an exceptional team of assistants at Courage Performers, who have a passion for the arts and for helping children develop and grow. We also have links with some industry professionals who deliver workshops for the groups, such as child agent Mark Jermin, improv group Showstoppers, and many West End performers.
