About

CYT 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.

Classes (Lafayette and Vermilion)

Classes are held every fall, winter and spring for kids ages 4 to 18. Each session is 10 weeks long with one class a week. Each session ends with a family showcase to see what the kids have learned. In addition, at the beginning of each session kids 8 to 18 can audition for the big shows which if cast would require additional rehearsal days. 

"CYT Lafayette is a great way for your child to explore their creative side in a Christian atmosphere."

Danie Adams

Hi! My name is Danie Adams and I am so excited to begin my teaching journey with CYT! I'm a recent high school graduate and I've been in over 20 productions throughout the last 7 years with CYT/CCT and other theatre companies. I have 12 years of dance experience and have trained in many styles including jazz, contemporary, tap, hip hop, and musical theatre. I was also recently the co choreographer for Ascension Episcopal Middle Schools production of Seussical Jr. I hope through my class your child can grow in not only their skills and knowledge of dance, but in confidence of their abilities and of who God created them to be.

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. Don't miss the action!
