Mission Statement:
CYT@school is devoted to introducing performing arts to children, one school at a time, by providing a high-quality experience that is educational and enjoyable

Many schools have had to cut their arts programs so CYT@school is dedicated to bringing to your school a low-cost, after school program developed to support the performing arts training in public and private schools. Research has shown that performing arts helps students gain confidence, build leadership skills and develop a sense of community. CYT wants to ensure that students everywhere have an opportunity to experience theater arts.

Our program consists of 8 weeks of drama, voice and dance which offer sound theater art instruction while also building character. All participating students will perform in an end-of-session showcase that is literature based while still being very popular with students. Our teachers are enthusiastic, fun, positive role models who lead and inspire.

CYT curriculum is based on visual and performing arts content standards for California public schools, Pre-K thru grades 12. There are two components to our program. One is introducing many of the California theatre content standards, and the second is to apply those standards in a performance showcase for family and friends. CYT is certified through the San Diego County Office of Education Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA).
CYT, the national leader in children’s theater, would like to bring you performing arts!

The program is called CYT@school – your school! It’s a low-cost program, which was developed to support performing arts training, as many schools have had to cut their arts’ curriculum. CYT wanted to tap into its 30 years of children’s theater to ensure that students everywhere have the opportunity to experience theater arts. Research has shown that performing arts help students gain confidence and build leadership skills, both of which help students do better in school and in life.

Our traditional program consists of 8 weeks of drama, voice and dance. All students will perform in the end-of-session performance showcase. Our curriculum offers sound theater arts instruction and a quality experience. And our teaching artists are enthusiastic, fun, positive role models - they will inspire your students to do their best.
