CYT Houston offers classes for students ages 5-18 throughout the school year. Classes include drama, voice, dance, and behind-the-scenes training in makeup, costumes, tech, and more. Classes are held for two hours once a week and run for nine consecutive weeks in Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions. Class sizes are small and offer supervision both inside and outside the classroom. Each session culminates in a high-energy showcase to demonstrate to family, friends, and fellow students the skills acquired. Beginning in the Fall 2020 Session, we will be offering both in-person and virtual class options.
Parents enroll their children in CYT Houston classes so that they have the opportunity to learn, and that’s exactly what they do! By the end of the session, students have gained new or improved theater arts skills in the area of emphasis. During the last class week students will showcase their skills either virtually or in-person, and it’s always exciting to see what they’ve learned!
Tuition for most classes is $225. Project Play classes are $295 which includes extra weeks of rehearsal, production elements and 2 tickets to the Play Festival performance of all Project Play classes.
Refund policy - No refunds will be given after classes are purchased, or if in-person classes move to an online format due to government regulations or safety protocols.
NOTE: Students must be enrolled in a CYT Houston class and be between the ages of 8- 18 yrs old in order to be eligible to audition for a show. If a student auditions and are not cast in the show they try out for, the student may audition for another show in one of our other areas. It is permissible to enroll in classes in one area and audition for a show in another area. However, if you choose this option, please be aware that there may be some overlapping dates, especially with showcases. A class showcase in one location could be scheduled during the same week as a Tech Rehearsal in another location; therefore, showcase participation would not be possible. Please be sure to check the online calendar for any conflicts before registering. Unfortunately, there is no way to avoid these schedule conflicts with multiple areas as we must structure our schedules around open venue dates.
Attendance Policy: It is especially important that your student attend classes regularly and that they do not miss the Showcase performance. Many numbers being performed rely on every student to be present and others are affected if one person is missing. CYT Houston is an Educational 501c3 organization, and the classes, and attendance in those classes, is what allows CYT to maintain that status. All communication regarding absences must be done by contacting the Class Coordinator. Quality performing arts education and character development are primary goals of CYT. Therefore, students should not plan to miss more than two classes. Special consideration may be granted regarding absences due to illness or family emergency. In these instances, please make requests to the Class Coordinator in advance and as promptly as possible for consideration. Should your child’s attendance in classes (or rehearsals) exceed the maximum allowed absences, he/she is subject to replacement in the production in which they are currently cast and they may be removed from the Showcase. If your child has a conflict during Showcase, please notify the Class Coordinator and the Instructor as soon as possible.
There will be no refunds for classes or production fees if a student is removed due to absences.
If you have additional questions about classes, please email your Class Coordinator.
