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.

About


Many schools have had to cut their arts programs, so CYT@school is dedicated to bringing an affordable, after school program to your school. It is 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 WINTER 2020 Session is Open!  

Curriculum

CYT curriculum is based on visual and performing arts content standards for California public schools, Pre-K thru grade 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's CA Arts Standards.

Teachers

A CYT@school teaching artist mission is to train and instruct students in such a way as to promote the development of character, self-esteem, and confidence. CYT@school teachers are qualified and experienced in the arts. All CYT@school teaching artist's have been background checked and are enthusiastic, fun, positive role models who lead and inspire.
