CYT@school is a program of CYT Portland that introduces the performing arts to children, one school at a time, by providing a high-quality experience that is educational and enjoyable.
Many schools have had to cut their arts programs so CYT@school is dedicated to bringing to your school a low-cost, theater arts training program tailored to the needs of each school. 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.
The CYT@School program brings the arts back into your school's curriculum, by providing an artist-in-residence style class, on your campus, during your school day. Our program consists of 8-10 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. Our teachers are enthusiastic, fun, positive role models who lead and inspire.
