About CYT Classes- Where the fun begins!

CYT offers classes over the course of three sessions during the school year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Weekly classes last for two hours and last 10 classes. A variety of classes are offered in drama, voice, dance, and specialty classes that vary per session for ages 4-18.  At the end of a CYT session, students will come away with improved skills in the area of emphasis.

Classes FAQ

These FAQ apply to our regular class models (Fall and Spring) For Winter classes they register for one group and rotate to the classes each week. 

How do I choose what class to take each session?

Each session the students can choose one class to take. We recommend choosing the class that will most benefit the student at that time. If they are having a hard time with their songs during auditions, choose a voice class. Or if they are brand new to theatre, our Intro To Acting Classes are a great place to start. 

What can I expect from our classes?
Every session, CYT Lake Charles offers theater arts classes to children ages 4 – 18. These two-hour after-school classes are held once a week on Tuesdays. On the final week of classes, students will display a portion of what they've learned by participating in a SHOWCASE for family and friends.  At the showcase, students will present a brief performance to highlight what they mastered throughout the session. (Some classes do not participate in showcase and are listed.)
Do I need to have prior theatrical experience?
No.  We can teach you everything you need to know! However, we sometimes offer classes that require prerequisites, so make sure to check our class listing  for more details.

Who receives e-mail communication through the website?
The primary e-mail contact listed in your family account will receive the e-mails if necessary. 

What if my child doesn’t know anyone?
Many of our students are new to CYT. We encourage a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere where kids will meet new friends.

What should my child wear to class?
We encourage comfortable to dance and play-friendly clothing each day. Please encourage your child to wear closed-toed shoes with a back of some kind (please no flip flops or open-toed shoes). Your teacher will have more specifics depending on the specialty of your class.

How do you handle allergies?
Please let us know of any allergies when you register online. Our staff will be alerted to the allergy and maintain a high level of awareness.

Is there a sibling discount?
Yes! The discount is $15 off of the cost of tuition for up to three siblings.
