Updated January 15, 2021
Covid-19 Updates will post here.  Please check back regularly as guidelines change.

We miss your beautiful faces!  We are excited to see you in person for spring under the current Day Camps guidance. Because we are an after-school enrichment program and not an accredited school nor a licensed child-care facility there is no specific guidance that fits our program precisely. Therefore, we have been advised to follow the Day Camps Guidance.  

We have designed our spring session to to be able to accommodate the guidelines found above, including smaller groups, larger spaces to allow more room, masks (unless you are exempt per CDPH guidelines), enhanced cleaning and sanitation measures, among other modifications designed with your safety in mind. 

Regarding performances, it is our hope that live theater will be allowed by the time of our scheduled performances in late spring. As guidelines allow, we have a plan in place for in person audiences, live streamed performances, or a hybrid approach. One way or another, the show must go on!

 
CYT Sacramento offers classes over the course of three sessions during the school year: Fall, Winter, and Spring.  A variety of classes are offered in drama, voice, dance, and specialty classes each session.

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.
