About CYT Classes

CYT Portland offers classes over the course of three sessions during the school year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Weekly classes last for two hours and run for ten consecutive weeks. 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.

Enrolled students, ages 8 – 18, have the opportunity to audition for a CYT Broadway-style musical! Younger students may serve as ushers at CYT shows, and students ages 12 and up may work on a backstage crew.

Classes may include but are not limited to:
  • Wiggles (Ages 4-5)
  • Our Gang (Ages 6-7) 
  • Dance/Movement
  • Drama 
  • Voice
  • Musical Theater I & II
  • Auditions and Callbacks 
  • Comedy and Improv 
  • Technical Theater; such as Makeup, Set Design, etc.
  • Stunts and Combat.
Classes are held once a week for two hours and run for ten consecutive weeks. During the tenth class week, a showcase is presented in which each class performs a brief prepared presentation, showcasing what they have learned over the session. Every CYT student participates in the Class Showcase!
