Performing Arts Classes

undefined

The magic of VYT extends beyond the stage. For us, it begins the moment a child walks through our doors. We believe engaging young people in theatre is a powerful way to learn and practice life skills, build self-esteem and foster creativity.

Many times, attending a VYT performance is a child’s first glimpse into the world live theatre, and we are committed to making that initial impression one they will appreciate and remember for a long time to come. We provide a positive, supportive opportunity for every child who visits VYT for a field trip, auditions for a show, enrolls in a class, participates in camp or attends a VYT event.

Our Classes and Camps help young people discover the talents they already have and hone the skills they may need to sharpen. Our education programs are designed to help students become entranced in storytelling, build self-confidence, grow as critical and creative thinkers, and learn fundamental theatre techniques – all while having fun!

If you know a child who is a little magic in the making, connect with us today!
