CYT’s class sessions are designed to offer students performing arts classes in drama, voice, and dance.  Along with those classes, specialty theatrical opportunities such as makeup, film, and stage combat classes may also be available during the year. Enrolled students are not required to audition for a show, but may just participate in a class.

Most class sessions run weekly for 9 or 10 weeks per session with students attending class every week. Occasionally, sessions may be shorter or may feature stand-alone master classes due to calendar limitations. Students are encouraged to try different classes each session to broaden their performing arts training.  There may also be pre-requisites needed in order to enroll in certain classes.  Students ages 16-18 may work toward a National CYT Decathlon Award.

Classes for students’ ages 8-18 are two hours long.  The Our Gang class for students’ ages 5-7 runs for 90 minutes.  All classes culminate in a Showcase performance where each class presents a mini-performance of what they’ve learned.
