About

CYT offers classes for children ages 4-18 over the course of three sessions during the school year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Weekly classes for students ages 6 and up last for two hours and run for ten consecutive weeks at $235 for the session. For students ages 4-5, weekly classes last for 1 hour and run for 10 consecutive weeks at $130 for the session. A variety of classes are offered in drama, voice, dance, and specialty classes that vary per session. Most of the classes are small to insure personal attention and growth.  

At the end of a CYT session, students will come away with improved skills in the area of emphasis. During the last week of class, a high-energy showcase is presented by each class to demonstrate to other students, family, and friends what they have learned.

Registration for our Fall Classes begins on August 1st!  Check back for a full listing!

Teachers

A CYT Teacher’s mission is to train and instruct students in such a way as to promote the development of character, self-esteem, and confidence. CYT teachers are qualified and experienced in the area in which they teach. They have been trained in the CYT methods of instruction and agree with the CYT values and outcome goals.  All CYT teachers have been background checked and adhere to our CYT Mission and Values. Our teachers truly care about their students and provide a constructive and fun environment for them to learn.

Showcase


Parents, friends, and relatives are invited to attend CYT's Showcase performance on the last day / evening of classes, free of charge! Showcase is the grand finale of each session of classes, at which every class makes a 5-10 minute presentation of something they have learned and rehearsed during the session. Don't miss the action!

 

CYT@school

CYT@school brings the same energy and education from our regular classes straight into your school! CYT San Diego partners with public and private schools throughout San Diego County to bring the arts to their students.

The CYT@school program consists of eight weeks of drama, voice, and dance training which offers sound theater art instruction while also building character. All participating students perform in an end-of-session Showcase that is literature-based while still being very popular with students. Our teachers are enthusiastic positive role models who lead and inspire.

CYT@school programs are listed below with the rest of our classes. However, only students attending that school may sign up for the program.
