About

CYT offers classes for students ages 4-18 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 ten 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.

Parents send their children to CYT classes to learn, and that's exactly what they will do! At the end of a CYT session, your student will come away with a new or improved skill in the area of emphasis. During the last week class, a high-energy Showcase is presented by each class to show other students, family, and friends all they've learned.

The CYT registration fee is for the whole session, not a monthly fee. We think that's pretty cool! Sibling discounts are also applied on multi-sibling registrations.

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 5-8 minute presentation of something they have learned and rehearsed during the session. Don't miss the action!

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.

I am so excited to return to CYT after a break of a few sessions. I will teach Wiggles and Giggles again this session. I have been an early childhood teacher for over 20 years.

When not on stage or teaching she is also a full time student, studying Psychology, and active in her church community. Anna is so very thankful to get to share her love of dance with others in such an uplifting environment as CYT. “Let us praise His name with dancing.” Psalm 149:3

Theatre has always been central to Kaitlyn Zoeller’s life. Even during her studies at Rice University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts in English, she focused specifically on dramaturgical analysis. Before Rice University, Kaitlyn discovered the joys of improv at age twelve through her education with CYT Houston. Kaitlyn performed as an improviser for CYT Houston’s competitive team for two consecutive years at CYT's National Improvathon. After leaving CYT for college, Kaitlyn performed with Rice University’s improv troupe Spontaneous Combustion for four years, during which she performed at various improv houses, including the Upright Citizens’ Brigade’s New York location during the Del Close Marathon. Aside from her collegiate experience, Kaitlyn has worked as an improviser for Station Theatre, as well as for the experimental longform improv troupe Magical Lying Hour, with whom she has performed in various improv festivals nation-wide. Most importantly, Kaitlyn is thrilled to work with the students at CYT San Antonio-New Braunfels and help foster a love for improvisation in all interested students.

FAQ's for Classes

Are parents allowed to sit in during classes?
While we love to have parents involved at CYT, we do ask that parents not be in the room once instruction begins. This is for several reasons. Some students do not perform well with parental supervision, and other students sometimes get nervous when another in-related parent is in the room. We also want the Showcase performance to be an awesome surprise for you and your family! If you feel like you need to sit in on a class for any reason, please contact our Class Coordinator.

What should we expect on the first day of class?
When you arrive, you will turn in your Medical/Photo Release Form and your Behavior Contract form. After that, all parents and students will head into our Main Studio Room for a brief welcome meeting before the students head to class. If it is you first time in a CYT Class, one of our HYPE Students will be available to answer any questions and help your student feel at home! Our Class Coordinator will send out an email with specific instructions for the first night of class, so be on the lookout for that!

What does my child need to bring to class?
A water bottle, a pencil, closed toe shoes, and good attitude are all good things to have! If your child needs anything specific to their class (especially for dance classes) you should receive an email from your instructor detailing what you need.

Is there a break during class?
Yes! After an hour of class time, your student's class will break for a 10 minute water and snack break. We have water cooler in our studio and we also sell small snack items for 50 cents. We encourage all students to bring a water bottle!

What is the refund policy?
Refunds are not issued once classes begin. Classes cancelled two weeks before start date are subject to a $25 cancellation/processing fee. For any questions, please contact our Managing Director at md@cytsanantonio.org

I've already registered for a class, but I want to switch to a different class. Is that ok?
We are totally fine with students moving to another class. HOWEVER, any requests to move to another class must be submitted and approved two weeks before the class begins. If you need to switch classes in that two week time period, a $25 fee will apply.
