About CYT Classes

CYT classes offer many benefits and opportunities to the young people of the community. Training in singing, dance, drama, makeup, set building, accents and dialects, stunts and special effects are just some of the topics offered in three 10-week terms (some terms may only be 9 weeks due to holidays, etc) each year in each area. Classes, limited to 15 students, are taught by experienced theater arts people--teachers, performers and professionals. Some of our current teachers began their careers as students in CYT classes. Just as important as the teaching of theater arts skills is the positive effect that theatrical experience and performance has on the self-discipline, self-confidence and self esteem of young people. Some CYT students go on to pursue careers in entertainment, but they all gain poise, experience, self-confidence and an appreciation for the arts that only comes from participating in a stage production. CYT offers young people an opportunity to keep busy, to learn, to develop their talents, to interact with friends and to be positive members of their community.

Classes may include but are not limited to:

• Intro to theater for ages 5 - 7
• Dance
• Drama
• Voice
• Musical Theater
• Auditions and Callbacks
• Comedy and Improv
• Technical Theater classes such as Make Up or Set Design
• Stunts and Combat

Enrolled students, ages 8 – 18, have the opportunity to audition for a CYT Broadway-style musical! Younger students may serve as helpers at CYT shows, and students ages 13 and up may work on a backstage crew.

Classes are held once a week for two hours, and run for ten consecutive weeks. During the tenth class week, a showcase is presented in which each class performs a brief prepared presentation, showcasing what they have learned over the session. Every CYT student participates in the showcase.


Thank you to Lance Dickson and his family for providing The Dickson Family Scholarship Fund. There are hundreds of local kids who benefit from this program.

Our goal is to never turn away a child interested in pursuing the Arts because of financial need! If you are seeking scholarship approval, please download the scholarship form and information at the top of the class page.
