About Classes

CYT offers classes for students ages 8-18 throughout the school year. Classes include drama, voice, dance, and behind-the-scenes training in makeup, costumes, tech, and more. Classes are held for two hours, once a week, and run for nine consecutive weeks in Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions. At the end of a CYT session, your student will come away with a new or improved skill in the area of emphasis. Each session culminates in a high-energy showcase to demonstrate to family, friends, and fellow students the skills acquired.

Spring Classes have been cancelled!

As a theater arts training program, our new students are required to take a beginning CYT vocal, dance, and theater classes before taking intermediate or advanced classes.  When signing up for classes remember you must crawl before you walk. Technique is the foundation of every aspect of theater. You must learn and understand the basics before you learn the harder elements. This is for safety and to help you grow into well rounded singers, dancers, and actors. 

Due to concern for health and safety, we are cancelling our Spring 2020 classes. HOWEVER, we plan to bring these classes back in the Fall! We hope to see you then to continue growth in your artistry! In the meantime, stay safe and healthy everyone. 💙
People currently registered for classes have the option of requesting a refund or they can retain their registration for the fall. 

For a refund request, contact Tim Novak at: austin@cyt.org

We apologize for the inconvenience! 

Audition for a Show
