Learning at CYT

CYT offers weekly classes over the course of three separate sessions during the school year. Each 2-hour class runs for 9-10 weeks, and the variety of topics offered include drama, voice, dance, and specialty classes. Most of the classes are small to ensure personal attention and growth. 
 
At the end of each CYT session, students come away with improved skills in their area of emphasis and present a high-energy showcase to demonstrate to other students, family, and friends what they have learned.
