ONLINE WORKSHOPS

CYT Online is a way to experience exciting and challenging workshops virtually during this unprecedented time.  We’re excited to bring you this unique opportunity to learn more about theater arts and building character, from the comfort of your own home!

We are offering eight different Virtual Workshops during May and June.  These workshops include training in various aspects of arts, and will be full of encouragement and uplifting opportunities for our students to connect.

Take one or all!  The cost is $15 per workshop. Each sibling in a family requires a separate registration.  
Registration ends three days before each workshop.

Date:  Thursday, May 21st
Time:  7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Isn't it fun to hear someone from another country speak our language? What vowel formations give them such a different sound? There's a difference in pronunciation for the Queen's English and your favorite Aussie. Come learn the basics of how to talk like you are from another country and expand your accent portfolio!

Tap to "Anything Goes"

Time:  7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Instructor:  Lindsey Chastain

This workshop will review the fundamentals of tap dance and incorporate them into some combinations. All levels are welcome! Grab your tap shoes if you have them, and if you don't, tennis shoes or jazz shoes will be just fine.

Reach out of your comfort zone with some hip hop choreography with Ryan. What song are we gonna do? No idea! What's it going to look like? Couldn't tell ya! But come on out (figuratively) for a different kind of dance workshop filled with moves that you wouldn't find in your average Broadway show. Long-time dancers and newcomers alike will be welcome to join in on the fun. Hope to see you there!

Definitely for actors that want to learn more about their craft from a different perspective.
