CYT Teaching Artists

CYT Teaching Artists are confident in their skills and abilities, both as a leader and a team player, and are able to infuse every class with character developing theater arts training. CYT offers theater classes for students ages 4-18, covering a variety of topics. Classes are held once a week for 10 weeks in the Fall, Winter, and Spring, and are 2 hours long for students ages 8+. Classes for 4-5 year olds are 1 hour, and for 6-7 year olds are 1.5 hours. These class topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Auditioning
  • Dance
  • Drama
  • Musical Theater
  • Specialty (Stage Makeup, Puppetry, Stunts and Combat, etc.)
  • Technical Theater (Lighting, Set Design, Prop Making, Stage Management, etc.)
  • Voice
CYT's goal is that every student leaves their class not only feeling more confident in their performing arts skills, but also in who they were created to be. CYT is committed to providing excellent theater training by staying informed of National VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) standards. CYT hires qualified Teaching Arts and Artistic Teams who consistently elevate our students’ knowledge of theater arts. Interested individuals should reach out to the CYT Santa Cruz leadership to inquire about current Teaching Artist openings.

CYT Artistic Teams

CYT Artistic Team members (Directors, Choreographers, Musical Directors) are confident in their skills and abilities, both as a leader and a team player, and are able to infuse every rehearsal with character developing theater arts training. CYT offers audition opportunities to students currently enrolled in classes between the ages of 8-18. Rehearsals are held twice a week on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. The rehearsal process and show weekends wrap up after about 10 weeks total. The shows coincide with the class sessions, occurring every Fall, Winter, and Spring, with occasional opportunities during some Summer sessions as well.

CYT's goal is that every student leaves each rehearsal not only feeling more confident in their performing arts skills, but also in who they were created to be. CYT is committed to providing excellent theater training by staying informed of National VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) standards and hires qualified Artistic Teams who consistently elevate our students’ knowledge of theater arts. Interested individuals should reach out to the CYT Santa Cruz leadership to inquire about current Teaching Artist openings.
